Sources said Naso allegedly entered the room of the deceased, identified as Seyi, and stabbed him to death with knife, while he was asleep.
The incident occurred at Messiah high School street in Akure.
It was learnt that trouble started when the deceased accused the suspect (Naso) of abusing his wife in his presence.
The development, it was learnt, did not go down well with Naso , who was said to have engaged the deceased in verbal war.
Following the development, concerned neighbours were said to have waded as they tried to settle the matter.
The disagreement consequently led to the attack on the deceased, who was reportedly stabbed to death on his bed by the suspect.
