Father hacks son inside bush, leaves him for dead ••
A yet to be identified man has allegedly stabbed his son, Favour Oyediran and abandoned him inside the bush.
The incident happened on Sunday near the President Muhammadu Buhari Estate, along the Abeokuta-Siun-Sagamu Expressway.
New Telegraph learnt that the father of the 11-year-old boy had lured him into the bush on the fateful day.
The suspect was said to have stabbed his son in several parts of the body, including the neck, and abandoned him after the victim pretended that he was dead.
It was learnt that Favour was living at Abule Agbon, located between Kobape and Abeokuta, with his father, stepmother and her two children.
A good Samaritan, who was passing by, was said to have rescued the boy after he crawled out of the bush.
Our correspondent learnt that the badly injured boy was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta where he was admitted at the Children’s Ward.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Favour’s mother had separated from his father, and that the latter frequently maltreated him.
