Intriguing Interview with a Man Accused of Patricide
In a heart-wrenching account, 38-year-old Ifeanyichukwu Anadike, originally from Imo State and residing in Ogun State, shares his profoundly unsettling story of being arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly killing his own father with a machete. In this interview with OLUMIDE TAIWO, Ifeanyichukwu opens up about the shocking events that led to this gruesome act.
Unusual Circumstances and a Frightening Request
Ifeanyichukwu’s story begins with his father making a chilling request. According to him, in August 2021, his father visited his residence in Lagos and instructed him to take his life. The shocking demand left Ifeanyichukwu bewildered and scared, prompting him to drive his father away.
A Fateful Return to Ogun State
Despite the disturbing request, life took a dark turn for Ifeanyichukwu. In November, he received an eviction notice from his residence in Lagos. When he informed his father about this predicament, his father repeated the disturbing directive. Ifeanyichukwu was torn between fulfilling this macabre request and maintaining his moral compass.
The Alleged Catalyst: Unsettled Debts
The police claim that Ifeanyichukwu murdered his father over N70,000 he had entrusted to him. Ifeanyichukwu explains that he left his job in September 2022 due to pressure from his parents, who insisted that he heed his father’s wishes. He received queries at work due to absenteeism, further contributing to his decision to quit.
Family Knowledge and Concerns
Ifeanyichukwu did not keep his father’s disturbing request a secret. He confided in his sisters and other relatives, even seeking his mother’s advice. However, his mother suggested that his father’s behaviour might be attributed to old age.
A Tragic End
The fatal incident occurred when Ifeanyichukwu returned home one day after an unsuccessful attempt to find work. His parents, vociferously against his employment, urged him to stay home. His mother gave him N700 to purchase spaghetti for his meal. While in his room, he overheard his parents arguing, and his father reiterated his desire for Ifeanyichukwu to fulfil his gruesome wish.
In desperation and rage, Ifeanyichukwu grabbed a machete and attacked his father, resulting in his father’s tragic death. He acknowledges the gruesome act but insists it was carried out according to his father’s wishes.
The Burden of Regret
Despite his actions, Ifeanyichukwu expresses deep regret over the tragic events. He is tormented by his father’s disturbing request, which ultimately leads him down this dark path.
In a shocking and emotionally charged interview, Ifeanyichukwu Anadike shares his harrowing journey from being a son faced with a horrifying request to become an accused patricide. His story is a stark reminder of the complexities of human relationships and the devastating consequences of profound, inexplicable proposals.
