The Enugu State Police Command has arrested one Emmanuel Ogbu, for allegedly killing his kinsman, Mr Chukwuma Nwankwo, in Imeama-Ugbawka community, Nkanu East Local Government Area of the State.
The spokesman of the command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement to NAN, said the incident occurred on October 14 at about 11am.
Amaraizu stated that the suspect after a quarrel with the kinsman allegedly shot him to death.
His words, “We gathered that a quarrel ensued between the two of them over a yet-to-be established issue.
“Following the quarrel, a fight broke out between two of them and at a point, the deceased reportedly had a chance and escaped from the grip of the suspect and ran to his house.
“But the suspect later laid hand on a gun and allegedly pursued him to his parlour from where he allegedly shot the victim at the back with the single barrel gun; the victim was later confirmed dead.
“The corpse of the deceased was deposited at General Hospital Agbani, in Nkanu West Local Government Area for autopsy.’’
