IN MUMBAI: NIGERIAN RONALDO FAN STABS LIONEL MESSI FAN TO DEATH

messi-ronaldo-fans

That football fanatics can love the game to death was proved last morning, when one Nigerian man killed his friend after an argument on who is the better footballer – Messi or Ronaldo.

The two men and a group of friends had gathered at a friend’s house in Nallasopara (E) to celebrate Obinna Michael Durumchukwu’s 34th birthday on Saturday night. By Sunday morning, most of the friends had left, while the owner of the house retired to the bedroom. Michael and another friend – the accused, Chukwuma Nwabu (22) – continued to hang out at the house and were watching a football match.

Some time between 9.30 and 10 am, an argument broke out about who is the best footballer. Michael supported Argentina and Barcelona striker Lionel Messi, while Nwabu argued that Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid and Portugal star) was better.
Verbal abuses began to fly thick and fast, and Nwabu hit Michael, who threw a glass tumbler at him in retaliation. The tumbler missed Nwabu’s head and smashed on the wall instead. Incensed, Nwabu picked up a broken glass shard and rammed it into Michael’s throat.
