Earlier, the prosecutor, Cpl. Hafsat Ajibodu, had  told the court that the accused committed the offences on Dec. 4 at about 11. 30 a.m., at No. 11, Ibitayo St., Magodo GRA, Phase 2 in Lagos State.

She alleged that the accused had stabbed his father, Babalola Rotimi, 59, to death with a kitchen knife .

The accused was also alleged to have stabbed his mother, Adijat Babalola, who is presently battling  with  her life in an undisclosed hospital with another knife.

“My father wanted to use charms to make me rich, I don’t know why he would want to do that to me despite being a practising  Muslim.

“My parents would lock me up and send thugs to beat me up, I stabbed them out of frustration and because he would not give me money for my upkeep.

“I went to Shoprite to purchase two knives to defend myself and to gain my freedom because I was always locked up in my room,” Rotimi Junior said.
