Ebikari Andrew, who is just 13-year-old, stabbed his 20-year-old elder brother, Tarikebina Andrew to death while they were engaged in an argument.
The incident happened at Jehovah Witness Road, off Goodnews Street in Azikoro, Bayelsa State.
According to reports, the brothers were at a friend’s house at about 9pm on Saturday, March 7, when Tarikebina noticed Ebikari was falling asleep already.
He asked him to go back home, since their house is only a few meters away. However, Ebikari refused.
Ebikari’s refusal led to a disagreement between them and, in anger, Ebi went into their friend’s kitchen and brought out a knife with which he stabbed his elder brother.
Tarikebina was rushed to the Federal Medical Center Yenagoa where he was confirmed dead due to internal bleeding.
The 20-year-old’s corpse were hurriedly buried by the father to avoid a police investigation that could lead to the arrest of his younger son.
The suspect and the boy’s father were arrested after neighbours contacted the police.
The police also ordered the body of the murdered boy to be exhumed, and it was later taken to the hospital.
The suspect and his father are in police custody for interrogation and possible prosecution on the matter.
