Tragedy: Abia Poly Student Arrested For Killing His Brother Over N500


A student of the Abia State Polytechnic in Aba has reportedly stabbed his brother and fellow student to death over argument of who gets a N500.

According to sources, Chisom went to their mother’s shop yesterday to ask Joseph for N500, but Joseph told him to meet their mother for it.

This made Chisom angry and he left the shop and went home. When Joseph returned home at night, Chisom blocked the house entrance and refused him from entering the house. A fight ensued and Chisom brought out a knife with which he stabbed Joseph to death.

Chisom was apprehended by residents the following morning and was later handed over to the police.

In a video shared online, youths in the area can be seen asking Chisom what happened at night that led to him killing his brother. The body of the deceased is seen lying on the floor beside Chisom as they were both surrounded by curious people wanting answers.

Some onlookers called Chisom names. A woman said he was “wicked” and another said it’s things like this that require “jungle justice.”
