Graphic VIDEO: Man clubs son to death

A father is reported to have committed a gruesome act by beating his own four-year-old son to death.

The reason behind the cruelty is yet to be known as the offender who is a teacher, is currently at large. United Television (UTV) spoke to the man's wife and brother-in—law to delve deep into the matter.

In the footage, the woman recounts that she was staying with her sister when the incident occurred. “At midnight, I received a call from my husband that our son is suffering from malaria, and it was getting worse.”

As a caring mother, she said, she rushed home only to be given a flimsy excuse by her husband that because the child is seriously ill, he has locked him in the room and was heading out to write an exam.

“...I called my husband to find out where he was. He told me that he would call me when he returned.”

“I asked him where our son was and he replied that because he is sick, he has locked him in the room and gone out to write his exam. Later on, I was joined by my family members, and they informed me about my son's death. I asked what led to his death, and they told me it was malaria…together with my family, we planned to arrest my husband, but he took to his heels when he realized our intentions,” she said.

In a separate interview with the woman’s brother, he claims as the eldest son, he took the responsibility of ensuring that his niece gets buried early because of their Islamic beliefs.

“At the hospital, we informed the authorities that we would want to quickly have the body and perform the burial rites as our religion demands of us. The owner of the facility came in and opposed our decision to carry the body away.

She inquired from my in-law if the boy truly died of malaria. She was less convinced it was malaria and believed an accident caused it."

“At that very moment, my in-law requested to have a private chat with her. But the madam asked him why all of a sudden our open conversation had to turn to a private one."

“She agreed to it, but it appears in-law wanted to bribe the owner of the place.” I heard her asking him “can you bribe me? "
