He was apprehended by the local security who handed him over to the police.

Speaking shortly after he was apprehended, the suspect said: “When he came back, he told me to cook rice. And as I was cooking the rice, he asked me why I did not wash plates. I did not reply. He then asked why I wasn’t responding to his question.

In the process, he slapped me. But I told him I usually have ear problems and that people don’t slap me.

As I was saying that, he angrily asked if I was still talking while he was talking. And therefore, he slapped me again & brought out cane & started flogging me all over.

Then in the process, I got angry and we started fighting. It was also in the process of that fight that I picked up the pestle in the kitchen & hit him on the head.”
