The deceased’s uncle, in a Citi News interview, narrated that the duo had a misunderstanding at a banku joint.

“Unexpectedly, the suspect later accosted my nephew on his way home and stabbed him to death at 10 pm last night,” he recounted.

Abdul Salam Yakubu said the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Gushegu district hospital morgue.
