Man Hacks Brother To Death In Edo

The Edo State Police Command has arrested a 34-year-old man, Omorodion Sampson, for allegedly stabbing his younger brother to death in the Egba area of Benin, the state capital.

The suspect was alleged to have had an argument with the victim, who was identified as Imuetiyan Omorodion, before the incident occurred at Blessed Quarters, in the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of the state.

He was, however, said to have been arrested on October 7.

The Commissioner of Police, Mr Johnson Kokumo, who confirmed the arrest at a press briefing on Tuesday, said that Omorodion, aged 27, was stabbed twice in the neck with a knife.

Kokumo paraded other offenders.
