Hunter stabs man dead over girlfriend

A young man has been stabbed to death over a girl issue by a yet to be identified member of Hunters Group of Nigeria, HGN, attached to Agbarha-Otor B' division, in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.

The suspect and others have been apprehended by police for the killing of the victim.

It was learned that the suspect along with some police officers  and victim were in free for all fight over a girl when the incident occurred few feet away from Agbarha-Otor Police Division. 

The source said, fight started when a police officer whose identity could not be ascertained called on the young lady going out with her man friend (victim).

The anonymous source revealed that, the lady who refused the call of the policeman began to rain insults on him and in the process, she was slapped.

In return, the lady's boy friend slapped the police officer and that led to the free for all fight between some police officers and friends of the boy from the area.

Another source who witnessed the scene said, "The girl and her boyfriend were passing by when the police officer excused her and the boy confronted him on why he is excusing his girlfriend.

The source alleged that, "The Police Officer in response, questioned the boy for challenging him and a fight broke out between them which attracted other officers nearby and friends of the boy.

It was now a fight between the civilian boys and the police and in the process of the fight, a Hunter officer came in, brought out a dagger and stabbed one of the boys.

"I was told the boy that was stabbed dead is from Orogun but resides here in Agbarha-Otor and he died before  they could rush him to the hospital.

"The Hunter guy, the police officers that were involved in the melee have been arrested including the main officer that caused the fight and others and they are currently under detention at the Ughelli Area Command". The source revealed. 

When contacted, the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edafe Bright who denied the allegations said, "Nothing like that."

But senior security officer from the Delta State Police Command who confirmed the incident said, "There was a fight over an issue and the vigilante wanted to help somebody and they mistakenly stab somebody and the person died."
