- An argument involving two young men has left one dead
- The men were arguing over power connection when one of them stabbed the other to death
A man identified as Chibuzor Nwafor has been arrested by the police for stabbing his friend and neighbor, Amarana Chikezie, to death.
The two men were said to have been arguing over power connection at their residence in Kado-Kuchi close to Next Shopping plaza in Jabi, Abuja when the incident happened.
The sad incident left residents of the area in a state of mourning. The deceased was said to be a 23-year-old graduate of Community Development from Enugu State University of Science and Technology.
The young man was confirmed dead as soon as they got to Gwarimpa General Hospital. The sister of the deceased, Precious, revealed that Amarana was stabbed in the heart and this made it difficult for him to survive it.
The embittered lady said her brother and his killer were friends; this made her conclude that the murder was a premeditated one.
“Chibuzor phoned my brother to come back home so they could talk about the power supply extended to a new neighbour by Amarana.
“In the course of their discussion, they started quarreling and they were prevented from fighting by those present.
“The next thing that Chibuzor did was to enter his room and got a knife which he hid so that the others would not see it; he then stabbed my brother in the heart.
“I don’t know why he would kill somebody he ate and drank with. I believe he planned the murder all along, but he must tell the world why he did this.”
A mutual friend of the deceased and his killer spoke anonymously saying Amarana had plans to join the Nigerian Air Force before his untimely death. He also said the deceased was taken to a pharmacist who refused to treat him because there was no police report.
“We then decided to take him to Gwarimpa General Hospital, but we couldn’t get a vehicle on time. For about 20 minutes, we were looking for a cab while we kept him in front of the chemist shop.
“It was a man who was going to a church vigil that took him to the hospital, but the doctor said he died five minutes after he was stabbed, adding that there was no way he could have survived because the knifed penetrated his heart,” he said.
It was also revealed that Chibuzor was lured to the hospital where police officers were waiting to arrest him.
