A younger brother has stabbed his sibling to death because he was asked to wash plates.
A family living in Akute, a suburb of Ogun State, has been thrown into mourning after a 25-year-old man, Kenneth Chikwado Agbamone, was allegedly stabbed to death by his younger brother, Ekene, following an argument about who should wash dirty plates in the house.
According to reports, on Tuesday, July 14, Kenneth and Ekene had a heated argument after the elder brother instructed the younger man to wash the plates the family used in eating the night before, before leaving for a church programme.
On returning from the church service and seeing that Ekene had still not wash the dirty dishes, Kenneth got angry and demanded that his younger brother promptly washed the plates but Ekene was said to have refused to comply, an action that got Kenneth angry and he used his belt to hit the younger man before leaving the house to get some water.
But on coming back, Ekene who was still seething with rage, attacked his brother with a knife and stabbed him in the chest and fled the house.
It was the screams of the injured Kenneth that drew neighbours and their mother who sold roasted corn on the street and they met him in a pool of his blood.
He died as he was being rushed to a nearby hospital while Ekene has been arrested by the police.
