(videos) 19-year-old boy beats his stepbrother to stupor and buries him alive for allegedly stealing N1000 in Kogi

In a shocking and distressing incident that transpired on the evening of Tuesday, October 10, 2023, in Apamisede Community, situated within the Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State, a 19-year-old boy named Goodness Oshodi found himself entangled in a deeply troubling event. This incident came to light when he allegedly buried his step-brother, Friday Oshhodi, for an accusation of stealing a sum of N1000.

In the aftermath of this horrifying event, it was revealed that the victim, Friday Oshhodi, was remarkably fortunate to have been rescued by vigilant neighbors, who undoubtedly acted as his saviors during this harrowing experience.

Eyewitness accounts provide a disturbing narrative, suggesting that Goodness’ mother had instructed him to discipline Friday for the purported theft of N1000. Heartbreakingly, Goodness subjected Friday to a severe beating before allegedly burying him alive, an act that epitomizes cruelty beyond comprehension.

Goodness, when asked about his reasoning behind this abhorrent act, mentioned that he was merely following his mother’s directive to punish Friday for the alleged theft and escape attempt. Shockingly, the mother had tasked him with this punishment while she was away attending a church service.

As news of this heinous act spread, the law swiftly intervened. The Kogi State Command apprehended Goodness Oshodi, the alleged perpetrator, and initiated a thorough investigation. The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP William Aya, confirmed the arrest and stated that the interrogation process was underway, aiming to fathom the motivations and circumstances surrounding this deeply disturbing incident.

This chilling occurrence serves as a grim reminder of the importance of fostering a society where compassion, understanding, and appropriate conflict resolution prevail, rather than resorting to violence and acts that defy humanity. It calls for collective reflection on the urgent need to address issues of violence, abuse, and misguided obedience, advocating for a world where love, empathy, and respect for human life triumph over brutality and ignorance.
