The suspect, a father-of-four, was arrested on Sunday while trying to escape, according to Punch.

The paper said the victim brought his killer up.

The deceased however, enraged his nephew when he prevented him from drinking a local brew called ‘suck and die’, a drink Dodo was fond of and was always drinking himself to stupor.

In the fit of anger, the suspect went to fetch his gun and shot dead his 50-year-old uncle.

“Out of annoyance, I ran into the house, picked a gun and shot him. I never knew that he would die, he was only correcting me so that I will be a better person in the society, someone my family will be proud of,” the publication quoted the suspect as saying.
