Man stabs friend to death over internet modem

A student of Federal Polytechnic, Auchi in Edo State
(names withheld), suspected to be a cult member,
has stabbed a 300-level student of the Department
of Business Education, Delta State University,
Abraka, Solomon Onyeoghani, 24, to death in Warri.
The 29-year-old suspected cultist allegedly killed his
friend with a broken bottle on suspicion that he stole
his internet modem and went into hiding after the
The sad incident occurred at a house on Osamede
Street, Okumagba Avenue, Warri, Delta State,
Source said the suspect laid siege to Solomon's
house and pounced on him, while he was heading to
his mother's shop.
It was gathered that Solomon took to his heels on
sighting the suspect, but the suspect chased and
stabbed him severally on the neck and other parts of
the body.
Sympathisers were said to have rushed the victim to
the hospital, who was abandoned in a pool of blood,
to a nearby clinic, but he gave up the ghost before
help could come.
At the residence of the victim's parents, yesterday,
his mother was seen weeping while were
sympathisers consoling her.
She called on government to bring the killer of her
son to book.
Her husband, Mr. Augustine Onyeoghani and the
only surviving daughter bore a look of melancholy.
Mr. Onyeoghani said: "The problem started on
Tuesday when my son told me what happened. I
went to Chukwuka's father to tell him because we
are neighbours and we come from the same local
government (Ika North East). The father promised to
call his son to order. I personally called him
(Chukwuka) on phone and he told me that he was
not around. When he eventually came on Friday, he
came to my house and the only thing he came to tell
me was that he was going to kill my son. This
happened around 4:30pm."
"Not up to one hour that the boy left, Solo returned
from College of Education Warri, where he is
running a programme in Business Education, Delta
State University Abraka programme. Immediately he
(Solo) came in, he told me that his sister was calling
him from the store. Not up to 20 minutes that he left
the house, someone came to tell me that Solomon
was dead. I did not know that the boy meant to kill
my son. They did not fight. The boy rushed out from
nowhere and started stabbing him with broken
bottle. He stabbed him severally on the neck."
Mr. Onyeoghani accused the mother of suspect of
not helping matters, saying it was in her presence
that her son rushed out to attack his son, alleging
"The mother of Chukwuka did not help matters at all.
It was in her presence that his son was threatening
to kill my son and she said nothing.
She even threatened to go to their village to swear
juju if my son refuse to bring out the modem.
However, my son said he did not steal any modem.
They just killed my son for nothing. The boy has
since run out of town, but I know he cannot run
forever. All I want is for the law to take its course.
My son cannot just die like that."
