Angry Man Kills Neighbour Over N800 Electricity Bill

Operatives of Abia State Police Command on Tuesday arrested one Jude Okebuagwu for allegedly killing a 56-year-old man, identified as Chibuzor Ogbunma over N800 electricity bill.

It was learnt that Okebuagwu refused to pay his energy bill which led to the disconnection of his line.

The incident happened at the suspect’s home town at Umuoko village in Ntigha-Umukalu-Isiala-Ngwa North Local Government Area of Abia State.

Angered by the disconnection of his electricity line, the suspect reportedly attacked the deceased and used the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company belt with an iron head to hit the deceased on his shoulder.

A statement made available by the Abia State Commissioner of Police, Mr Anthony Ogbizi, confirmed the incident.

The police boss stated that the deceased was the chairman of his village and member of his community task force on electricity.

He added that the deceased died of injuries sustained from an assault on him by the suspect.

Ogbizi stated that the suspect had confessed to the crime and would soon be charged to court.
