  1. The work of the devil

  2. Arresting him isn’t enough he should be jailed for life if possible killed instantly…parents should learn to allow their children marry the one they love because marriage is love and without love the marriage is useless and is expected to crash…He has killed his daughter,the marriage has ended and so his existence…He should face the consequences of his action.

    Gosh! That’s really absurd!! The father went too far by stabbing the daughter. The daughter’s disobedience should have been resolved amicably without shedding blood….

    Killing is no longer a big deal to most people in this world anymore, you can’t even trust your own for family..
    Poor Athira….quite a tragedy..

    Even “anger” is not an excuse for this so called father. He should be punished.

  9. Nwabugwu Sandra ijeoma

    Nawa o things are happening why will a father kill his own daughter

  10. CHUKWUKADIBIA ADAOBI

    Instead of killing the daughter, why not find some other means to stop the marriage . Some father’s are just something else

  11. Nwankwo onyinye grace

    Jesus Christ.
    Only God will judge him sha.

  12. Instead of killing his own daughter he would have just disowned her or rather not be a party to the marriage…..what a disappointment!!

  13. This is outrageous!!!….. People need to stop acting on impulse in the heat of an argument. Learn to walk away from situations that threaten your peace of mind. What has the father gained from killing his own daughter? Nothing I guess!… He is only going to be tormented by his actions and live with the guilt for the rest of his life and he deserves a life imprisonment penalty cos death would only make things easy for him. He needs to live everyday with the torment of killing his very own daughter. RIP dear

How can a father stab his own daughter just because his daughter married the love of her life, the man she wished to spend the whole of her life time with someone she love.This is wickedness and unlawfully.What the man would have done was just to see reasons with her daughter and give them his blessings The man is so heartless that he should spend the whole of his life in jail.
