A man was arrested and charged with murder after he killed his little boy by padlocking his mouth, police in Nigeria said.
Chris Elvis was also accused of burning his child with a hot iron because he was evil.
The 30 year old decided to kill his son Godrich, because he believed that his son is causing him bad luck. The incident occurred in Lagos, on Adetola Adelaja Street.
A photo has also been circulating on the Internet, showing the child with a padlock through his mouth. A court was told that Elvis shut his lips together to prevent his child from screaming as he was being beaten and burned.
When the child’s mother came home, she found him dead and called the police. Elvis was arrested and has been acting in a strange manner. Police said that it is possible that the man is mentally deranged.
