Man Shoots Elder Brother Dead Over N1500 Electricity Bill in Anambra

A man identified as Peter Orji, has allegedly killed his elder brother, Godwin, during an argument bordering on the payment of N1,500 electrical bill at their residence in Uruagu, in the Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

According to PUNCH Metro, the brothers were at home when they started arguing over Peter’s refusal to pay N1,500 for his monthly electrical bill on Tuesday.

As a measure to get him to pay the money, it was learnt that power supply into Peter’s flat in the house was disconnected.

A source in the community said Peter, who was angered by the development, stormed into his flat, brought out a gun and allegedly shot his brother to death.

After perpetrating the crime, the suspect reportedly rushed to the nearest police station and surrendered himself to the police to avoid being lynched by angry mob.

Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, however, said the suspect was arrested contrary to claims that he willingly surrendered himself to the police.

Ikenga said the wife of the suspect was first arrested at the crime scene, adding that the couple were currently in police custody.

Ikenga said the state Commissioner of Police, Echeng Echeng, had ordered that the case be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for discreet investigation.
