A shocking incident in Ibadan, Oyo State occurred, a 20-year-old suspected internet fraudster, popularly known as a “Yahoo Boy,” was apprehended after allegedly stabbing his parents.

The suspect, identified as Daniel Bamidele, reportedly attacked his mother, Titilayo, and his father with a machete in their Apabielesin residence on Thursday, January 25.

According to reports by The Nation, the attack unfolded when Daniel’s mother fled from their home with severe injuries, calling for help.

Bystanders rushed to the scene, disarmed Daniel, and held him down.

The suspect revealed that he had been involved in cybercrime, commonly known as yahoo business, and claimed that his parents were aware of his illicit activities.

Daniel explained that he had promised to use the proceeds from his cybercrime endeavors to provide a better life for his family.

However, he alleged that his mother and elder brother conspired to defraud him of N2.5 million.

This purported betrayal, coupled with the claim that his mother provided a fake name, triggered his violent outburst.

In a disturbing confession, Daniel stated that he intentionally lured his mother from a church program, attacked her with a knife, and inflicted cuts on her body.

He further disclosed that he attacked his father when he attempted to intervene.

The suspect justified his actions by claiming self-defense, asserting that his parents were attempting to kill him.

Daniel accused his mother and elder brother of manipulating his bank documentation and attempting to deceive him about his finances.

He alleged that he had made his elder brother his next of kin but claimed his brother was trying to exploit him.

He expressed frustration over not being informed about their son’s activities.

The case underscores the complexities surrounding cybercrime and its impact on individuals and families, shedding light on the darker side of the illicit practice and its potential repercussions.
