An American-based couple has been murdered by the man's brother during the Christmas holiday in Liberia.
According to Nigerian social worker based in New York City, Aremo Ariola who posted the sad incident on his Facebook page, the couple who were based in Minnesota, had been sending money home for the brother to build them a house but when they got home for the Christmas, they realized that the brother had embezzled the money with nothing to show for they huge amount they had been sending home.
The incident was said to have generated a lot of bad blood between the man and his brother which had to be settled by other family members.
Thinking the issue had been solved, the couple settled down to enjoy the celebrations not knowing the man’s brother had another plan for them as he prepared food laced with poison and served the man and his wife.
After eating the meal, the couple was found dead the next day on their bed.
This is what Oriola posted on his wall:
“I just got this… someone who knows the wife personally just inboxed me to confirm the story. According to him, they were Liberians based in Minnesota.
The couple went home for Christmas. They had been sending monies home for the husband’s brother to build them houses. ‘
While at home this Christmas, this brother cooked food and sent over to his brother and wife. They died after eating the food.”
It was also gathered that the food the couple ate the night before their deaths had been taken to a hospital for tests and the results showed it was poisoned.
