A Man who killed his friend over a N75k debt has been sentenced to death by hanging by a High Court which sat in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital. Stephen Anona, the man who killed his friend over the N75k debt, was handed the court sentence 3 years after he committed the said offense in Itu Road, Uyo. The convict who is said to be an Uyo based barber, murdered one Daniel Bassey Solomon and dismembered his body into smaller parts for easy disposals in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital for allegedly not paying a debt of N75,000 owed him.
Stephen reportedly lured his victim into his one rented room apartment on Itu Road, Uyo and gave him a poisoned food which made him (Daniel) fall into a deep sleep. He then used a sharp matchet to cut off his head, severe his legs, hands, and the abdomen, and carefully packed them into different bags and secretly dumped them into gutters and other places.
