An appalling story has been told by the Hindustan Times, reporting on a murder of a Nigerian man.
34-year-old Obinna Michael Durumchukwa was reportedly killed after a Leo Messi v Cristiano Ronaldo argument took a major turn for the worst.
The incident happened in Nala Sopara, in Mumbai, India.
According to the report, the murder happened at Durumchukwa’s own birthday party:
Police said the man who was killed, Obinna Michael Durumchukwa, 34, was celebrating his birthday with his friend Nwabu Chukwuma, 22, at a rented flat, when they started to argue over who the better player was — the Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo or his counterpart at Barcelona, Lionel Messi.
Durumchukwa flung a glass at Chukwuma, which missed him and broke against the wall. Chukwuma then picked up a shard of glass and cut his friend’s throat in a fit of rage, said police inspector, Kiran Kabadi of Tulinj station.
In a separate report on NDTV.com, it’s claimed that the murder happened at “some time between 9.30 and 10 am”.
