A man in his early 20s, identified as Kopapa Neete, has been stabbed to death during an altercation with a relative in Rivers State.
Daily Sun gathered that the incident occurred on Sunday night, allegedly perpetrated by his elder cousin, Bobby Gabriel, in Duburo community in Khana Local Government Area of the State.
A community source, who gave his name as Emma Barikor, said Gabriel, who is in his early 40, stabbed the cousin to death with a knife during an argument.
Barikor said the suspected killer allegedly fled after he had committed the dastardly act.
