A fight by two blood brothers have resulted in the death of one of them.
The sleepy community of Umuokara in Orba, Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State, was left dumbfounded when a tragedy of enormous proportion befell them as a fight between two brothers ended with the younger one killed in the process.
Though the cause of the fight was not immediately known, it was gathered that the brothers who are from the same mother but different fathers, Chukwudi Ngwoke and Sunday Ngwu, had been having a go at each other for a while and the silent animosity had been building up till it erupted, leading to the fatal fight.
The suspect, Ngwoke, who lived with his mother after she remarried, was said to have hit his younger brother with an iron rod and he fell down unconscious. All efforts to revive him failed and he was rushed to a nearby hospital where the medical doctor confirmed him dead.
The suspect has been arrested by the State Police Command while investigations are ongoing.
