Man To Die By Hanging For Killing His Friend Over Debt
A man who murdered his friend and cut him into small bits for disposal has been sentenced to death by hanging.
Daniel, an Uyo-based barber, allegedly owed Stephen a debt of N750,000 which he was reluctant to pay. Stephen Anona then lured his victim into his rented one-room apartment on Itu Road, Uyo, on July 28, 2015, and gave him food to eat. Unknown to Daniel, a substance was put in the food and he fell into a deep sleep afterwards.
Stephen then used a sharp machete and cut off Daniel’s head, legs, hands and abdomen, and carefully packed them into different bags which he secretly dumped in gutters and other places.
