A man has killed his sibling residing in the Odokekere area of Ikorodu North Local Council Development Area of Lagos State, over an argument on money borrowed.
Naija News understands that the two brothers, Chukwuma Njoku and Uchenna Njoku, engaged in a fierce fight after an argument ensued between them over the N,3000 debt.
Chukwuma was said to have visited his brother at his resident to demand him to pay the N3,000 he owed him. The development, however, degenerated into an argument and later into the exchange of blows. A report by the Lagos State Police Command confirmed that Chukwuma stabbed his brother to death during the fight.
Neighbours were said to have attempted to intervene but it was late as Chukwuma already brought out a knife and allegedly stabbed his brother in the stomach which led to his death.
The Spokesperson of the state police command, Muyiwa Adejobi, while given more details on the incident, explained that the suspect has been arrested.
He said: “The suspect will be taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, after ongoing investigation,”
The PPRO added that the suspect will be prosecuted immediately after the investigation was concluded.
