Tolani Ajayi, the 21-year-old undergraduate who killed his father, has said he is ready to face the consequences of his action. While speaking with Journalists today at Eleweran Police Headquarters, Abeokuta where he has been remanded, Tolani said he hacked his father, a lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria to death because he was angry about his father’s action.
According to him, they had an argument and his father hit him with a stick which made him attack him with a kitchen knife and cutlass which later led to his death. I don’t need any help from Nigerians, he said.
“There is no way Nigerians can help me. I am going to face my judgement. I am meant to pay for what I have done. It is not as if I am ready, it is something that is inevitable – something that is going to happen; I am just waiting for it.”
It was also gathered that Tolani had been suspended from Redeemer’s University on drug related issues and the University management were about setting up a panel to question him before the incident took place.
He however sent out some words to his mom, who he says will grieve the most, that he was sorry and regrets his actions.
