A Nigerian man named Chukwuba Nwabu pictured top left, who is a Cristiano Ronaldo fan, killed his friend, Obinna Micheal Durumchukwu pictured top right, who is a Lionel Messi fan, after an argument over who is a better footballer between the two stars at a birthday party organized by a Nigerian student in Mumbai, India over the weekend.
The men were at a party thrown by a Nigerian at his house, when the argument ensued and they began fighting. One stabbed the other to death.
A senior Indian police officer who spoke on the incident said:
“The friends entered into the debate as they were ardent football fans. The victim entered into the heated conversation and considered Lionel Messi to be the best football player but the accused were supporting Cristiano Ronaldo. When the accused started leaving, the victim threw a glass on the accused which hit his face and the glass broke. The accused picked up the piece of the broken glass and, in a fit of rage, slit the throat of the victim. The fight which started from football debate ended up with a murder. We have arrested the accused under sections 302(murder) and 34(common intent) of the Indian Penal Code. We will produce the duo at Vasai court on Monday” he said
