His landlord called police after the shocking discovery of the decomposing corpse of an 83-year-old man in a septic tank in his compound.

The suspect confessed to police that he committed the offence because he has no money to take the corpse to the mortuary.

Before the discovery, the suspect lied to neighbours that his father’s corpse had been deposited at Madueme Hospital mortuary but the horrible stench emanating from the septic tank exposed the suspect.

He has been arrested by Delta State Police Command officials.

  1. JUST THIS morning, my little niece asked me to define stupidity for her, and I failed woefully. If only I had read this news before then!

  2. This is so heartless. It shows this son has not been participating in his village meetings inAsaba or in church activities or even helping others out when they are bereaved; otherwise people would have rallied round to at least give him funds for use in the embalming of the father’s corpse. That would have bought him time to gather the money for burial in Asaba even if the father was not taken to his home town for burial.
    This desecration of his father’s corpse is an abomination indeed. Eiiiiiiisssssshhhhhhh !!!

  3. This is a lesson to learn from moslems. If burials were not occasions for spending heavily by Christians, this man wouldn’t have done this nonsense.

  4. This is so shameful and a lesson to everyone, particularly Christians. There is nothing to preserve or embalm in a dead body. All they needed to do was dig the ground and bury the body. Of what use is a corpse to anybody? Vanity upon vanity. He did not have to go around looking for money to preserve a dead body, while he cannot even feed himself and children adequately. The living are more important than the dead. Having an elaborate (befitting) burial does not guarantee that the dead will make it into heaven. Society should stop the stupidity and misplaced priorities of wasting money on elaborate burials and struggle to pay debts later.

  5. Lobatan o,you threw your father’s corpse in soakaway because of lack of money for the burial?were you responsible for your father’s upkeep while he was alive?if yes that was enough to free your mind,and you would have just organised a small and private burial ceremony for your father, and then challenge anybody that ask why you did not do an elaborate burial ceremony to dash you money, rather than this show of shame and abomination you committed.What you owed your father is good care,if you did that,you ought not to have committed this kind of abomination to please or satisfy anyone,irrespective of whether you belong to any ye ye town meeting or church meeting.This is barbaric. You live your life for yourself and not for anyone or to please anybody.You need not put yourself in any unneccessary debt or bondage in the name of burial,when what you owef your father is good care.

  6. what an evil world we leave in… throwing your father’s body into a soakaway is as bad as mudering your father for the second time… what a useless child…
    but come to think of it is the family of the man not aware that he is dead? i think both the deceased and his son are both cruel and have abandoned their people for long.
    … JUST MY OPINION

  7. Chukwuma! you don’t need to be arrested before you can be Judged. You already cursed yourself. Eventhough you don’t have money cant you beg for help? you can go to church or mosque and let them know your situation. We still have some sympathetic people in Nigeria at least they can help you buried your father in non expensive way. Oh boy!!! you are a very heartless individual. If you can do this to your own father, I can imagine what you can do to your wife or your children. I remember my grandfather expression in those good days. He said, a son who bought a car for his parents and another son who used a car to break his parents leg, they all get the same blessing i.e your children will do the same thing for you.

  8. God pls give not to me a child dat will choose to dump me in the sokaway…ur fada and ur mother had every oppurtunity to dump u in dat same hole but they neva did..what a useless child u are…

  9. this man is a liar y not buried him it’s a must u cook food for people to eat. u father will never forgive u for this.

  10. When money is absent,many perilous thought will occupy the heart, so how do you want your children too bury you,what if they wet you acid or set you ablaze, this your excuse is not genuine. Why the elbalm*

  11. Nothing poverty will not cause again in this Nigeria. But don’t you have relatives? I think he’s possessed. May his father’s soul RIP
