In what may be the most bizarre crime of the week, a young man stabbed his neighbour to death over a faulty mobile phone.
According to eyewitness response, the hilarious but sad scenario occurred in Nigeria's Imo State at the Ibe street, Orji Local Government Area.
Blossom Emechebe, who happened to witness the incident, gave a vivid account on her Facebook page. According to Emechebe, the man, who has since been arrested, purchased an iTel mobile phone from the deceased.
However, upon taking the phone home, the arrested person got home to realise that the battery was a faulty one and thus returned to confront the deceased.
A fight ensued between the two.
The suspect then brought out a knife and stabbed the victim in the chest, and he gave up the ghost before help could come his way.
Blossom's reports state that the suspect run away after realising what he'd done but was swiftly arrested by the police after some youth in the area apprehended him, gave him a sound beating and handed him over to the force.
