Police arrest bouncer for killing boy over money

A 15-year-old boy, Oghenemaro Eriana, has been allegedly stabbed to death by a bouncer for picking money at a wedding reception at Mofor, in the Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.

It was gathered that Eriana was stabbed on Saturday by the bouncer drafted to the wedding reception at a popular hotel in the area.

A witness told newsmen that the victim was trying to pick money sprayed on the couple during the ceremony when the bouncer, Francis Utuedor, allegedly stabbed him.

“The boy stayed on Kolokolo Street in Udu Road and went to the party with his mother, but was stabbed to death before help could come his way.

“They said that his mother lost her older son about two months ago before this tragic death of another son.

“The deceased and his mother attended the wedding reception because they were neighbours of the groom on Kolokolo Street,” the witness said.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edafe Bright, confirmed the killing, adding that the suspect had been arrested.

He said, “It happened at the Wetland Hotel. The deceased was a 15-year-old boy. The suspect is in our custody and the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department. The body has been deposited in a mortuary awaiting an autopsy.”
