A fueling station manager was on Wednesday allegedly stabbed to death by his employer over N40, 000.
The deceased, identified simply as Chigozie, was the Station Manager at NENCO Fuel station at Okpuno Nnewichi, Nnewi, Anambra state.
Trouble reportedly began when the director (names not ascertained) told the manager to immediately provide the sum of N40,000 which he said was missing from the company’s purse.
The manager reportedly begged his employer to bear with him and deduct the amount from his November salary, but the director of the fuel station declined and insisted that the money must be provided instantly.
What seemed to be a mild drama turned bloody, when the director of the company in a desperate move to recover the said money, stabbed his employee several times with a screwdriver before he collapsed.
He was rushed to the Rose of Sharon Specialist Hospital, along Oba Rd., Nnewi, where doctors confirmed he was dead.
The director of the fuel station disappeared from the hospital immediately his employee was pronounced dead.
The body of the deceased was however taken away to an undisclosed destination by police operatives in Nnewi.
The Anambra State Police spokesman, Haruna Mohammed confirmed the development when contacted but said the headquarters is yet to get the full detail of the incident.
