A Lagos based businessman, Mr.Uchenna Njoku, has been allegedly killed by his younger brother, Chukwuma, during an altercation over N3000 debt at the deceased’s residence in the Odokekere area of Ikorodu North Local Council Development Area of Lagos State.

TNIN learnt  that Chukwuma paid Uchenna a visit on Friday when the deceased asked his brother to pay the N3,000 he owed him, but in the process, a disagreement ensued amongst them which led to a scuffle that lasted few minutes and attracted the attention of neighbours.

As the duo fought,  the brothers ignored several pleas by Uchenna’s pregnant wife to stop fighting, but in a bid to separate them, she resorted to seeking the help of their neighbours. However,  she returned to witness the gruesome murder of her husband by the brother.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, confirmed that Chukwuma had been arrested, adding, “He will be taken to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, for proper investigation.”
