he incident happened on Friday, August 7, at Odoh-Owambe II Community in Beebo Clan, Boki Local Government Area of Cross River State.
The deceased, identified as Agbor Henry, was the youth leader of the community before his tragic demise.
It was gathered that, Henry was a son the hunter bore out of wedlock with his late girlfriend, a police woman who died in a road accident in Calabar some years back.
After his mother passed on, Henry returned to the village to his father, whom he always claimed never carried out his responsibilities.
According to an eye witness, trouble started when the Hunter had met his son (Henry) drinking at a beer parlour and asked him to buy him some drinks. Henry had replied him saying; ‚ÄúIs it now you remember I’m your son?‚ÄĚ The statement caused a serious quarrel to the extent, they almost fought.
We gathered that Henry was later held and tied up by youths in the community, who demanded he paid a fine for attempting to fight with his father. It was also learnt that the father went to plead with the youths to let him go, which they did, thinking everything has been settled.
However, the quarrel between father and son heated up when they got home and with no one to broker peace between them, Henry reached out for a gun.
Seeing that, the father hurried into his room to grab his gun too. As Henry approached his father’s room to attack him, he was stopped by a bullet from his father’s gun.
After realizing that he has killed his son, he ran into the forest, to escape punishment but was finally intercepted by youths, who later handed him over to the Police.
Sources revealed that the hunter, suffered another tragedy, as his last son who was also shot by armed robbers, was brought to the village that same day to be buried.
He is currently at the Police Station in Bateriko, Boki Local Government Area, Cross River State.
