A bouncer, Francis Utuedor, has been arrested for stabbing to death a teenage boy at a wedding reception in Delta State.
The incident occurred on Saturday, September 25, 2021, at a wedding reception held at Wetland Hotel in Mofor, Udu Local Government Area, near Warri, in the state.
Sources said tragedy struck midway at the reception when the boy attempted to pick up some naira notes being ‘sprayed’ on the dancing couple as the overzealous bouncer grabbed and stabbed him.
The deceased, who lived along Kolokolo Street in Udu Road, was said to have gone to the wedding party with his mother, who had reportedly earlier lost an older son some two months before.
The deceased and his mother were reportedly neighbours of the groom – hence their presence at the wedding ceremony.
Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the development, said the suspect has been apprehended.
“It happened at Wetland Hotel. The suspect is in our custody,” the police image-maker quipped.

Few weeks ago, Eniola Oyemolade, a journalist, decided to get creative while cleaning, by mixing a toilet cleaner and a bleach together. She did this with the thought that if one product works, mixing it with another would make it even better.

“After the mixture, I started feeling a burning sensation in my throat and I had to leave the room because the odour was really bad too,” she said.
