Trouble started after Steven began todemand for his money back.

He claims that Daniel refused to pay him back and instead shouted at him.

After weeks of quarreling, an angry Steven decided that the best way to deal with the defaulting Solomon was to kill him.

Confessing to the crime, Steven said he invited Solomon to his house where he offered him a drink which he had already drugged.

After Solomon had fallen asleep under the influence of the drug, Steven proceeded to behead him.

"At about 3a.m, I decided to kill him. I gave him the first cut and the guy got up. I gave him a second one and then he died and I butchered him to parts. When I invited him to my house that day, he started shouting and getting angry with me, so I killed him. I am not dealing on body parts, I only cut him to pieces to be able to carry him.” he said

Steven brought out a rope and tied the neck of the deceased to a bed in his one-room apartment and then stabbed him on the chest with a knife sharpened and kept for the purpose.

According to him, the deceased died without much resistance.

He said he used a machete to cut off the head and dismembered each of the body parts of his friend.
