A Nigerian has been sentenced to three years imprisonment by court in Cambodia,  for beating up his compatriot, breaking his collarbone and landing him in a hospital.

Justice Top Chhunheng of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court heard that 30-year-old Idegwu Chibueze beat up his Nigerian compatriot, Ukpa Joesph, on October 31, 2016, after an argument over a $500 loan.

Chibueze, who had requested the payment of the loan from Joesph, was said to have struck the 34-year-old repeatedly with a piece of steel, breaking his right collarbone.

He was later sent by his friends to Preah Kossamak Hospital for treatment.

Reports claimed Chibueze and Joesph were friends before the incident.

The violence happened at a rented apartment in Borei Phiphop Thmei in Sen Sok district’s Chom Chao commune.

In his ruling, Chhunheng said, “The court sentenced him to three years in prison,” adding that Mr Chibueze was charged with “intentional violence with aggravating circumstances” under article 218 of the Criminal Code.
