Man Stabs Neighbour To Death Over Sound System’s Volume

A 50-year-old man identified as Cyril Oko was on Monday stabbed to death by his 25-year-old neighbour, Peter Nkwuda, over noise at their residence at Oroke Onuoha, Ebonyi Local Government Area of the state.

According to reports, Cyril Oko died after he got into an argument with his neighbour who accused him of raising the volume of his sound system to the discomfort of his co-tenants. He was reportedly asked to reduce the volume of the sound system, but reportedly refused.

However after Cyril barged into his room and reduced the sound system’s volume himself, Peter brought out a knife and allegedly stabbed his neighbour in the chest. The deceased reportedly died at the scene as all effort to stop the bleeding, proved abortive.

Ebonyi state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Loveth Odah, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect was arrested after the wife of the deceased Mrs Chisom Nkwuda, reported the incident to the Kpiripkiri Police Station. Police operatives also visited the scene and took the deceased to the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where he was confirmed dead.
