The police command in Abuja has arrested one Chibuzor Nwafor, for stabbing his friend and neighbour, Amarana Chikezie, in the heart, following a disagreement over power connection, PUNCH reports.
Nwafor stabbed his friend at their residence in Kado-Kuchi behind Next Shopping plaza, Jabi, Abuja.
The incident occurred around 10pm last Sunday and Amarana, 23, a graduate of Community Development from Enugu State University of Science and Technology, was certified dead on arrival at the Gwarimpa General Hospital.
Amarana’s elder sister, Precious, told journalists on Sunday that the deceased was stabbed in the heart leading to his demise shortly after.
She explained that Nwafor and her brother were friends, stressing that the murder of Amarana was premeditated.
He said that the deceased was initially rushed to a pharmacist after he was stabbed, who declined to treat him unless there was a police report.
He further stated that Chibuzor was tricked to the hospital where he was arrested by policemen who were waiting for him.
