A Nigerian man is currently on the run after stabbing his younger brother to death in Auchi, Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State, on Friday.
It was gathered that the trouble started when the younger brother identified as Suleiman scolded his elder brother’s Kadir’s wife for being rude to her mother-in-law.
The siblings’ 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 their nerves.
It was learnt that unsatisfied Kadir 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 deceased who was said to have been rushed to the hospital on Friday night died on Saturday morning from the injury he sustained during the attack.
The Edo State Police Command Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mr Princewill Osaigbovo, confirmed the incident.
Osaigbovo said that the victim died at the St. Jude Hospital, where he was rushed for medical attention.
