Man kills motorcyclist for over N50



A disagreement over N50 has led to the death of a motorcyclist, Michael Eze, in the Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.


Forty-year-old Eze was allegedly killed by his passenger, Michael Gabriel, around 9pm on February 2, 2017, for demanding that N50 be added to their agreed fare due to the length of the journey.

Gabriel, in a fit of anger, allegedly hit the victim with an iron rod in the head, which made him to collapse.

He was rushed to a private hospital in the community where he was confirmed dead.

Policemen from the state command arrested the suspect.

A resident, who did not want to be identified, said Gabriel was close to his house when the incident happened.

He said, “When the rider saw that the house was farther than what Garbiel described to him, he insisted that N50 must be added to the fare they agreed on. That was what led to the disagreement.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Amaraizu Ebere, confirmed the incident.

He explained that the police had yet to establish the cause of the disagreement.

He said, “The suspect is helping operatives of the command in their investigations.”
