A minor situation turned major in Okigbene-Opuama community in Southern Ijaw Local Government Area of Bayelsa as a man allegedly took the life of his close friend over a dog.
The unidentified dog owner lost his dog and apparently didn’t find it funny when his 40-year-old friend, Sege-Daniel Olotu, attempted to make light of the matter.
The owner , who is reportedly a former militant leader, was said to be armed with an AK-47 rifle during his search for the dog.
Reports say the victim was not aware of the seriousness of the situation as the ex-militant shot Olotu without hesitation at a drinking spot.
The victim and others had allegedly cracked jokes about the loss and also invited him to join them for drinks at the bar.
That didn’t go quite well with him, did it?
