A middle age man Udoh Johnson was stabbed to death with a broken bottle in a drinking joint over a minor argument.
According to reports, Udoh had gone to a drinking joint not too far from his house at Adinlewa street to charge his hand set when he met his untimely death.

The suspect simply identified as Wale who is still at large reportedly removed the hand set and the charger and flung it away.
An argument ensued and this was followed by a fight and Udoh was said to have been stabbed by the suspect with a broken bottle which made him bleed to death.
While the fight lasted others at the joint fled and nobody could rush Udoh to the hospital following which he reportedly died after losing much blood.
Police source said that the owner of the joint and some family members of the suspect have been picked up for questioning.
Ondo state Police Command Public Relations Officer, Wole Ogodo confirmed that the deceased was stabbed by one Wale now at large during an argument.
He however explained that Udoh was stabbed on the leg and was immediately rushed to the State Specialist Hospital, Akure for medical attention before he died while receiving treatment.
He said the corpse of the deceased was thereby deposited at the hospital morgue for autopsy.
According to him the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for thorough investigations.
Ogodo therefore assured that the drag net of the police detectives in the state would soon catch the suspect. [Vanguard]
