It was learnt that Okebuagwu refused to pay his energy bill which led to the disconnection of his line.

Angered by the disconnection of his electricity line, the suspect reportedly attacked the deceased and used the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company belt with an iron head to hit the deceased on his shoulder.
