A 21 year old man, Onyemaechi Mmaju has allegedly stabbed his landlord to death in Ogidi in Idemili North Council Area of Anambra State during a quarrel over his allegedly promiscuous lifestyle.
Following TNC investigations, it was gathered from neighbours that the victim, Nonso Umeadi Oyiboka, aged 35, had on Tuesday, confronted the suspect for bringing too many women into the compound.
The confrontation eventually led to a scuffle and in the process, the tenant stabbed the deceased to death.
An observation on the deceased body revealed stab wounds to his back.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in Anambra State, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident, saying that following the report, police operatives attached to Ogidi Division had rushed to the scene and found the victim in a pool of his own blood.
