A hairdresser , Patience Oamen , on Tuesday , narrated to a Lagos State High Court in Ikeja how her brother, Nelson , stabbed their father , Sunday Oamen , to death with a broken bottle .

Nelson is facing one count of murder contrary to Section 221 of the Criminal Law of Lagos , 2011 , before Justice Hakeem Oshodi .

According to the prosecutor , M . T. Adewoye , Nelson was 33-year – old when he committed the offence on September 18 , 2015 , at their residence, Block 272 , Flat 4 , Abesan Estate , Lagos State.

At Tuesday’ s proceedings , Patience stated that though Nelson had a cordial relationship with their father , the relationship was sometimes strained because of Sunday’ s refusal to give the defendant money.

Patience , while being led in evidence by Adewoye , told the court that Nelson ’ s clothes were stained with blood on the day of the incident and he hurriedly ran out of the house .

She said , “ On the day of the incident , our mother , who sells foodstuffs , was downstairs with me and between noon and 1 pm , while we were still downstairs , I saw my brother hurriedly coming downstairs with his clothes stained with blood . I called his name but he ran away .

“ The door to the house was locked and I was wondering how he opened the door .

I took the keys , opened the door and saw a pool of blood and immediately ran downstairs to call our mother and we both ran upstairs to check on our father and noticed that he had been stabbed .

He had been stabbed all over his stomach and neck with a broken bottle .

“ We reported the case to the police and three days later , Nelson came to the police station to confess that he stabbed our father to death. ”

Patience , who added that Nelson used to smoke Indian hemp , said his conflict with their parents over money had made him steal and sell a prepaid meter belonging to the family .

Patience , while being cross -examined by the defence counsel , E. B . Ogogo, reiterated that though she was not in the room when the incident happened , she knew that her brother committed the crime , because his clothes were stained with blood .

She added , “ I saw him that day but I forgot to put it down in my statement .

I was not myself that day because of the shock ; that was why I did not remember to write it in my statement .

“ My brother said our father ’ s spirit was haunting him and that was why he went to the police station to confess . ”

Justice Oshodi adjourned the case till April 6 for the continuation of trial.
