Two men were arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly beating their 56-year-old father because he married a 20-year-old woman, police in Nigeria said.
Abuja police arrested 22-year-old Nsikak Ekpenyong and 20-year-old John Ekpenyong, after being accused of beating their father for marrying a much younger woman.
According to the police investigation, since the 56-year-old man decided to marry the younger woman, he was subjected to beatings by his own children.
After the woman gave birth to their father’s child, the brother became extremely angry and decided to kill their father. On Sunday, the brother broke into their father’s home and began beating him.
The man screamed, attracting the neighbors to his home. The neighbors called the police, who arrived at the scene and arrested the brother.
They were charged with one count of assault.
