Men of the vigilante group around Onyobru Inland, Idjerhe Kindom in Ethiope West Local Government Area of Delta State, have arrested a man who killed his friend over a money gift of N500 from a local politician.
It was reported that a man, simply identified as Justice, was walking down the road with his friend, Oghenerona. The deceased saw a former councillor of their area driving by, which prompted him to greet the local politician, as he had known the person before.
The politician, wanting to be a cheerful giver, had given the duo a N500 note to share. A disagreement occurred shortly after the politician left them over the ratio at which they were going to share the money. While Justice thinks he's entitled to N300, for the fact that he was the one that greeted the politician and even collected the money from the politician, Ogheneruno didn't think he should be given just N200 out of the N500 gift.
Oghenerona, who was angry at his friend for not wanting to be fair in sharing the monetary gift, angrily went to his house, picked up a cutlass and allegedly stabbed his friend. He attempted to run away after the murder. But, due to the prompt intervention of local vigilantes Oghenerona was apprehended and transferred to local police department.
