Tragedy struck on Friday, February 19, when a man identified as Kadir allegedly stabbed his younger brother, Suleiman, to death for confronting his wife in Auchi, Etsako West LGA of Edo State.
According to Nigerian Tribune, the brawl started when Suleiman scolded Kadir’s wife for being rude to their mother, and the matter did not go down well with Kadir, who felt slighted that his younger brother had the guts to rebuke his (Kadir’s) wife.
Kadir, who was said to be away when the altercation between his mother and his wife occurred allegedly engaged the victim who was his younger brother in a brawl but, their mother’s intervention calmed frayed their nerves.
Not satisfied, Kadir was said to have revisited the issue later in the day and again, their mother stepped in and calmed the situation. However, while Suleiman put the matter behind him and went about his normal business, his elder later traced the deceased to where he went to late in the evening and allegedly stabbed him, before bolting away.
The state police Command’s spokesperson, Mr Princewill Osaigbovo, who confirmed the incident, disclosed the victim died at the St. Jude Hospital, where he was rushed for medical attention.
