A teen was arrested on a charge of murder after killing his father because he failed to buy him a motorcycle as promised, police in Nigeria said.

Plateau State police said that they have arrested 19-year-old Ponjue Domsing, after being accused of killing his father because he failed to buy him a motorcycle.

According to the police investigation, the father had promised to buy his son a motorcycle as a gift some time ago. However, every time the suspect asked his father for the motorcycle, he said that he will purchase one at a later time.

This week, the suspect decided not to take no for an answer and stabbed his father to death for not keeping his promise. Domsing was arrested at his father’s home, and was charged with one count of murder.

In September, a man was arrested on a charge of murder after he allegedly killed his own father, police in Nigeria said.

The Edo State Police said that they arrested 22-year-old Bestman Momodu, after being accused of killing his father, Zuberu Momodu, with a machete.

According to the police investigation, the father and son began fighting over a stolen cigarette. During questioning, the suspect admitted to killing his father, and said that he regretted his action.

Bestman said that after his father confronted him about the missing cigarette he took the machete and fatally stabbed him. He claims that what he did was a mistake.
