Angry youths of Amorie village in Orlu West Local Government Area of Imo State have reportedly burnt down the home of Nwazugbo Nsofor, the man who killed his relative, Ife Odenigbo, during a fight in South Africa a few days ago.
A video of the two engaging in a fisticuff surfaced online on Tuesday, February 11th. The video showed the moment Nwazugbo picked up a brick to hit Ife’s head and he immediately slumped. The victim was rushed to the hospital where he died after a few hours on admission.
Angered by the development, relatives of the deceased who hailed from Amorie village, Ubuntu community, mobilised themselves to Nsofor’s Etiti village in the same community and set the house of the suspect on fire yesterday.
Confirming the development, the spokesperson of the state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu, said an investigation has commenced into the incident.
