An Ikeja Special Offences Court, Lagos, has sentenced one Ifeanyi Nnamoko, 42, to life imprisonment for cutting off his best friend, Ifeanyi Anyanwu’s head with a cutlass, during a fight. 

Justice Oluwatoyin Taiwo convicted Nnamoko, a scavenger, on one count of murder. The convict committed the offense on March 4, 2011, at about 8.30 am at Oregun, Alausa, Ikeja.

Both Nnamoko and the deceased were scavengers working on the refuse dump site in Ojota. As stated in the court record containing the statement of Nnamoko, the convict said that he had a misunderstanding with the deceased which led to a fight.

He said that a colleague of theirs had bought him a bottle of wine and the deceased began to insult him. He asserted that during the fight, the deceased hit him with a bottle on his head and also stabbed him.

The father of four said he retaliated by giving him a machete cut on his head and neck respectively.
