A 21-year-old barber has been remanded in jail for stabbing his cousin to death at their aunt’s funeral.

The barber, Ugbede Daniel, was remanded by a Lokoja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Friday, September 16, for the death of his 28yr old cousin – Ebenezer Agada.

Chief Magistrate, Levi Animoku, while giving verdict said that Daniel’s offence of culpable homicide contravened Section 221 of the Penal Code and attracts a death penalty.

Animoku also said that the offence was not bailable, having Daniel remanded at the Federal Prisons, Ankpa.

The case however, was reportedly transferred to Chief Magistrate Court in Ankpa, and adjourned till September 27 for hearing.

Joseph Daniel, had made a report stating that a quarrel had ensued between the accused and the deceased during the burial of their aunt, Rose John, at about 9pm on that fateful day

Daniel who was seen with a dagger at the time dragged his deceased cousin to the front of the house before stabbing him in the chest.

Agada was left in the pool of his own blood before he was rushed to the General Hospital, Okpo, where he was confirmed dead.

According to Ganagana, further investigation into the matter is underway.
