Thirty-five-year-old Sherif Akudaago is in the grips of the Police for allegedly murdering his six-year-old son at Garu in the Garu District of the Upper East Region Saturday morning, ABC News has gathered.

Akudaago, who is unemployed, is reported to have cut the throat of Hanan Akudaago, who was a primary one pupil at the Covenant Academy Primary School at Garu, at around 4 am.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Daniel Yaro, Garu District Police Commander, who confirmed the incident to journalists described it as barbaric and inhuman.

“This is barbaric and inhuman so Akudaago is currently in police custody assisting with investigations,” he said.

Some residents in the area have been plunged into a state of shock as they assert that Akudaago cherished his son dearly, making the incident unbelievable.

Mr Charles Azure, a resident in the area, said the development has sent tongues wagging as no one could envisage such a ‘horrifying’ incident.

“Mr Akudaago was always seen with his son and caring for him. Even on Friday night, he was seen with the boy buying food for him.”

The mother of the boy and other family members, who were visibly shocked by the tragedy remain tight-lipped as they declined to comment on the matter when approached by journalists.

Meanwhile, some residents appealed to the police to investigate the matter thoroughly to ascertain what led to Akudaago’s gruesome action.

They however, cautioned the police to embrace professionalism and not hasten to attribute the cause of his action to insanity as that could have the potential to encourage such reprehensible acts in the country.
