Mechanic KIlls Colleague Over Missing Screw
An auto-mechanic identified as Chukwuma has stabbed and killed his co-worker in Enugu over a missing screw. The incident took place at Tinkers’ Village in the city.
The deceased was identified as Nnamdi Nzeh, who was a major dealer in motor parts.
Nze was said to have died in a brawl which followed an intense argument with Chukwuma.
An eyewitness said Nze died as a result of a deep cut he sustained on his neck during the fight.
“It was like a drama,” said the eyewitness. “This thing couldn’t have led to a fight but that was how the devil wanted it. Nze called Chukwudi to fix a [car part] for him; in the process he lost a screw and this resulted in a fighting. The mechanic denied he lost the screw which led to exchange of blows.
”When they started fighting people came and separated them and we thought everything was settled, until when the mechanic took a screw driver and stabbed Nze on his neck, he fell down and slumped.”
“The victim could not be saved immediately because the mechanics deserted the area on seeing the man in the pool of blood,” the eyewitness said.
A spare parts dealer in the area, Tony Ugwu described the incident as horrible, noting that the whole place has been locked as the police were tactfully searching for the whereabouts of the assailant who escaped immediately Nze slumped.
Police spokesman Ebere Amaraizu confirmed the incident.
