Police arrests a 23-year-old man, John Joshua, has been arrested for allegedly killing his neighbour for insulting his dad in Zazzaga, Niger State.
Joshua was said to have stabbed Yohanna Ali to death, with a knife, following a misunderstanding between the deceased and his father, Umar.
According to the police, Joshua’s father had a misunderstanding with Alli’s father sometime in May. During their quarrel, Alli disrespected Joshua’s dad and when Joshua heard what happened, he confronted Alli. During the confrontation, Alli showed no sign of remorse and even asked what Joshua would do. In anger, Joshua stabbed Alli in the stomach which led to his death.
In an interview with newsmen, Joshua said that he killed Ali for disrespecting his father, which, he said, was unacceptable.
His words: “I killed him because he insulted my father. He forgot that I would confront him. I have never insulted his father before, so why should he disrespect my father? .
When I confronted him, he did not show any remorse; rather he asked what I would do. So, I stabbed him in his ribs, which caused his death. For this disrespectful act, in his next world, he wouldn’t disrespect elders.”
