The deceased identified as one Iruchukwu Nnebe  believed to be about 25  years from Amankpunato in Oji River local Government Area of Enugu state was allegedly stabbed by his co-artisan friend identified as one Izuchukwu  Ifeacho also from Amankpunato  on Friday, May 31.

According to the suspect, the deceased being a member of Baga cult confraternity has been disturbing and pressurizing him to join the cult group but he has always refused and avoided him.

A release from the Enugu State Police Spokesman, Ebere Amarizu said that "on that fateful day in the night that he (the suspect) had gone to a certain shop at Amankpunato to eat indomie where he was allegedly trailed to by the deceased and his other cult members and told him that  today korofo will suck blood since he does not want to join them."

He further maintained that following this, the deceased and his associate started beating him and that he eventually ran away from them and went and collected their kitchen knife and returned to the scene where he stabbed the  deceased and was left in his pool of his blood.

"The deceased was later rushed to the hospital for medical attention and was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.The  dead body of the deceased has been deposited at the general hospital  mortuary Oji River," the police spokesman said.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, Suleiman Balarabe has ordered full scale  investigations  into the incident just as the suspect is helping the operatives of the command in their investigations.

The kitchen knife allegedly used by the suspect to commit the act has been recovered as an exhibit.
