Report says, Aniefok tortured the boy on the allegation that he stole a piece of fish belonging to one of his customers. He had repaired a faulty microwave oven for a customer, who gave him a piece of fish to test it after repair.
Aniefok reportedly forgot to return the fish while delivering the repaired microwave to the customer so he took it home for preservation.
One of Aniefok's neighbor reported that Savior is fond of torturing Nathaniel and his brother
“The last i saw Nathaniel on Sunday afternoon. In fact, I gave him snacks to eat. Around 10pm, we started to hear Nathaniel shouting and crying for help; we also heard loud bangs on the floor and wall indicating that he was being beaten," the neighbour said.
The Neighbor who reported that incident added "Nathaniel, his dad was telling him to shut up, I personally thought their stepmother was at home to caution him. But later, we got to know she had travelled. Surprisingly, I heard Nathaniel died the following day.”
Another neighbour said the father facilitated Nathaniel’s burial the following day, adding that he went into hiding and took Charles along to conceal the crime
"The injuries he sustained must have been responsible for his death. We only saw Saviour on two separate occasions after his son died. We have also not seen the stepmother of the children" another neighbor reported.
The Neighbor added "We learnt that the police have arrested his brother but we don’t know if Saviour has been arrested. I have seen him torturing one of the boys to the point of carrying the boy up and slamming him to the ground."
Another neighbour said he saw Saviour and three other persons attempting to convey Nathaniel to a location in the state around 4am.
"I saw Nathaniel lying naked in the back seat of Saviour’s car. I observed that a pain relief substance had been used to massage his body because I smelt it. I was on my way to work when I saw them.”
The Child Protection Unit of the Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development, which informed the Isheri Police Division to investigate the case.
When contacted, Saviour denied torturing his son to death, adding that Nathaniel was fleeing from being disciplined for stealing his customer’s fish when he fell and smashed his head on tiles.
Savior claimed, "I didn't beat my son to death I returned from church on Sunday, I got home and realised my customer’s fish had been touched. I asked who touched it and Charles his brother, said he was not the one. I asked Nathaniel, but he also denied it. I was going inside my room when Nathaniel thought I wanted to get a cane and as he attempted to run, he fell and hit his head on the tiles".
"I observed he was behaving strangely around 2am, so I quickly rushed him to a nearby hospital but it was locked. I rushed him to another hospital in Ketu, where he was referred to another hospital, but he died". Savior claimed
Savior said he wasn't hiding, his mother was sick so he came home with Charles, he claimed he wanted to tell her what happened to Nathaniel.
