Heartbreaking! Japanese Father Allegedly Stabs son to Death for not Studying Enough for his Upcoming Exam



dreamstime_stabA Japanese man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing his 12-year-old son to death because he was not studying enough for an upcoming examination, the report said on Tuesday.

Kengo Satake allegedly stabbed his son, Ryota, an elementary school student, in the chest with a kitchen knife in their apartment in the central city of Nagoya on Sunday morning.

The son was confirmed dead from loss of blood an hour later.

“I stabbed him as he did not study,” the 48-year-old father told police.

Satake had reportedly wanted his son to pass an entrance examination for the same private junior high school in Nagoya from which he had graduated.

Japan’s “exam war” to get into prestigious schools has become increasingly intense as more and more parents push their children to take entrance examinations for reputable junior high schools.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
