Operatives of the Delta State Police Command have arrested a bouncer identified as Francis Utuedor, for stabbing a teenage boy, Oghenemaro Eriana, to death at a wedding reception in Mofor, Udu Local Government Area of the State.
It was gathered that the incident occurred during the wedding reception held on Saturday, September 25 after the secondary school student had attempted to pick up some naira notes being sprayed on the dancing couple and the overzealous bouncer grabbed and stabbed him.
According to sources, the deceased, who lived along Kolokolo Street in Udu Road, had gone to the wedding party with his mother, who had reportedly earlier lost an older son two months before.
The deceased and his mother were reportedly neighbours of the groom – hence their presence at the wedding ceremony.
Spokesperson of the State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the incident said the suspect has been apprehended.
“It happened at Wetland Hotel. The suspect is in our custody.” Edafe stated.
