Indian police said on Monday that a man has been charged with murder after killing his friend over a heated argument on who should receive the world’s best footballer award.
According to the report, two Nigerian nationals were engaged in what seemed to be an ordinary argument about who deserves the world’s best footballer award between FC Barcelona star Messi or Real Madrid’s C Ronaldo, the argument became so intense that one of the men Michael Chukwuma, 21 stabbed his fellow countryman to death.
A Police Inspector Kiran Kabadi made it known that an offence of murder had been registered against the assailant Michael Chukwuma over the death of his 34-year-old countryman Obinna Durumchukwu on Sunday in the northern Mumbai suburb of Nallasopara.
Kabadi threw more light on the matter as explained that the friends were having a get together on Saturday night to celebrate the birthday of the deceased. They surely had a good time making merry that night not knowing what was lurking in the dark.
The morning after brought about an argument over football which is normal wherever guys are gathered. But unfortunately, this one turned tragic and claimed a life probably due to lack of self-control.
“The two Nigerian youngsters were discussing football players. One is a fan of Messi and the other was for Ronaldo,” the inspector said.
“During the conversation a quarrel had taken place. The deceased threw a glass into the face of the accused person. The glass broke and caused small injuries. “After that the accused took the broken glass and assaulted the deceased person who died due to heavy bleeding,” added Kabadi.
Meanwhile, the world’s best footballer is living the life in his state of the art mansion while crazy fans are fighting and killing themselves over for nothing.
