Confirming the incident, a police source from the Ughelli Area Command, disclosed that the victim died from stab wounds to his heart and head and died at the hospital after efforts to revive him failed.

“Though no arrest has been made, investigation into the matter is still ongoing as all parties involved in the fracas have been invited for questioning and we are doing everything within the law towards ensuring that anyone found culpable is brought to justice”.

Speaking to journalists in Asaba on Tuesday, the Police Commissioner in the state, Mustafa Muhammed said investigation was ongoing with a view to bringing the culprits to book.

He said: “The incident is under investigation, and we will ensure the culprits are brought to book”.
