In Uruagu town of Anambra State, the Police have arrested a man, named Peter Orji who allegedly killed his elder brother, Godwin, during an argument bordering on the payment of N1,500 electrical bill at their residence.
The incidence happened in Uruagu town in the Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Reports gathered that the brothers were at home when they started arguing over Peter’s refusal to pay N1,500 for his monthly electrical bill on Tuesday.
As a measure to get him to pay the money, it was learnt that power supply into Peter’s flat in the house was disconnected.
A source in the community said Peter, who was angered by the development, stormed into his flat, brought out a gun and allegedly shot his brother to death.
After perpetrating the crime, the suspect reportedly rushed to the nearest police station and surrendered himself to the police to avoid being lynched by angry mob.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, however, said the suspect was arrested contrary to claims that he willingly surrendered himself to the police.
