Man Hacks Friend To Death Over Wrap Of Marijuana

A man simply identified as Mkpor has hacked his friend known as Tunde, to death with a machete over a wrap of marijuana.

It was gathered that the incident took place in Aduma ward, Mkpani in Yakkur Local Government Area in central Cross River last week Wednesday.

According to a source who gave his name as Okona, Mkpor bought a wrap of marijuana from Tunde and refused to pay leading to a verbal exchange.

The source disclosed that the assailant went to the “bunk” where Tunde sells marijuana and smoked one wrap of the weed but refused to pay.

He said the event made Tunde ban him from going to his bunk.

According to him, “I understand he was fond of causing trouble in the bunk each time he went there. And on this occasion, he ordered a wrap of marijuana and after smoking he refused to pay.

“This prompted Tunde, who operates the place, to order him out with instructions that he should not visit the place again.

“The order irked the young man and he threatened to kill Tunde any time he saw him outside the bunk.

“On Wednesday afternoon, Tunde went towards our new market to buy some stuff and Mkpor followed him.

“When Tunde turned to look who was walking behind him, Mkpor threw a big stone which hit him on his forehead and he fell.

“He then brought out a machete and hacked off his Tunde’s right hand causing him to bleed to death.

“The youths of the community allegedly rose in anger and set the family house of Mkpor ablaze.”

Ms Irene Ugbo, Cross River Police Command spokesman said anti-riot policemen have been deployed to the area to restore normalcy.
