A man, Ibrahim Musa, on Tuesday evening stabbed his 15-year-old cousin, Muhammad Musa, to death over a missing phone in Mararaba, Karu LGA, Nasarawa State.
A witness, Babatunde Idowu, said Ibrahim was struggling to retrieve his handset from Muhammad who he accused of stealing and hiding it.
The witness said, “While Ibrahim was piling pressure on the late Muhammad to surrender the phone to him, he drew out a kitchen knife from his pocket and stabbed him on the chest and Muhammad slumped.
“Realising that Muhammad had dropped dead, Ibrahim threw the knife into a gutter and fled the scene.
“However, some youths chased and caught him before handing him over to the police.”
It was further gathered that the remains of Muhammad have since been buried according to Islamic rites.
