A different version of the Biblical of Esau played out at Nzashi Echara Community in Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State as Chukwunweikpe Orogwu, allegedly killed his brother over a plate of pepper soup.
Trouble ensued between the two in their home while they were refreshing themselves with goat meat pepper soup when the devil struck and Chukwunweikpe accused his younger brother, Ebubechi, 20, of consuming the lion share.
The two reportedly engaged in a fight and in the process, the accused grabbed a stool and hit the victim who fell down instantly.
The man was then rushed to the Alex Ekwueme Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where the doctor on duty confirmed him dead.
Ebonyi State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Loveth Odah, said the acting Police Commissioner in the State had ordered that the case be transferred to the command headquarters for further investigation.
“On May 15, at Amauda Nzashi, Ndufu Echara in Ikwo LGA, Mr. Clement Nwofia brought a report that Mr. Chukwunweikpe had beaten his brother Ebubechi Orogwu to death with wooden stool over the accusation that the victim ate more meat in their home than the suspect.
“The victim was taken to Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, where he was confirmed dead and the lifeless body was deposited at Ikwo General Hospital morgue,” Odah stated.
