  1. Na waoo. Papa why fighting and beating up your wife?up to that age you mean you are still not able to control your temper or at least learn to cope with the wife you’ve married for many decades ago? On the other hand,mr journalist the son why beating up your father?what you did to your father might amount to a very serious course on you. Papa maybe you shouldn’t have gone to the police because of your son. Look at the consequence now,even if nothing got missed from the police so far you resist arrest in the first place police will charge you In what ever form it may come. Imagine 47,000 naira stolen item from the police and 100,000 naira bail of your son. This is just ridiculous.

  2. I doubt the stealing aspect of the story. That bit is added because of the hurt feelings of the assaulted policemen. The father himself is an unruly person to have used his wife as a punch-bag.the boys should apologize and the matter treated as a family affair so the young people won’t risk being imprisoned and having that record follow them through life.
