Teenager kills friend over whot cards

A teenager has killed his friend by stabbing him with a knife at Unguwar Dallatu area of Gusau metropolis.


A witness, Abubakar Abubakar, told Daily Trust that the killer teenager identified as Anas met the deceased when he was playing whot cards with his friends and demanded that the cards be released to him.

“But, when the deceased refused, Anas threatened to kill him with a knife even though he was ignored. Anas went away and shortly afterwards reappeared holding the knife. He was held back by the people around the area who were trying to pacify him. Anas refused to listen to the entreaties of the good Samaritans around the area. He charged towards the deceased and stabbed him with the knife in the chest. He was then held by the people and two soldiers who were passing by until the police arrived and went away with him,” Abubakar said.
