A teen in Nigeria, allegedly stabbed his father in the eye because he refused to buy new clothes.
The boy of Lago, identified as Ikechi, confronted his father Anthony, in their home on Arowojobe Street, after he refused to buy him new clothes.
The father tried to reason with his 16-year-old son, saying that he does not have enough money for food and cannot buy new clothes at this time.
Ikechi ignored his father’s pleas and demanded money for new clothes. Ikechi accused his father of hating him. The father responded by taking a belt and beating the boy.
As Anthony continued his attack, Ikechi grabbed a knife and stabbed his father in the eye. Anthony was rushed to a hospital, where he was placed in the intensive care unit.
The family refused to press charges of assault against the teen.
