    Why I stoned my 2 children to death, Father

    Published on

    A 25-year-old man, Elisha Tari has attributed psychological problems and drugs as reasons he stoned two of his children to death.

    The victims were aged 3 and 5 years old

    Tari was recently arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command.

    While being paraded on Monday, the accused confessed that he has a psychological problem and was once tied in chains some time ago.
    “I smoke Indian hemp, drink alcohol, and inhale snuff. I don’t take tramadol or any other hard drugs,” he said.

    Tari explained that an attempt to bring his wife and the mother of the deceased children, who left her matrimonial home for two months, proved abortive.
    He narrated that on the fateful day, the victims approached him while he was cooking and he asked them “When is our mother returning back home?”

    He said that he also asked them to say “God” but instead, they said “fire, and kept saying fire, fire, instead of God.”
    According to him, this infuriated him and led him to pick stones to hit the children.

    “I became irritated and provoked by their action as a result of which I picked up stones and hit them on their heads”
