“The siblings rushed to scene, and in the course of engaging Oluchi in a physical fight, one of the siblings reached out for a kitchen knife and stabbed the man.
“The man fell down wreathing in pains before neighbours arrived the scene to rush him to the hospital where he gave up the ghost,” the resident told the Vanguard.
The resident added that police officers were later invited to take the deceased’s to the outpost at Ndemili, a nearby community.
The Delta Police Command confirmed the incident.
“It is confirmed but I don’t have details yet.
“The Divisional Police Officer of Kwale division has already detailed his men to investigate the incident,” Bright Edaffe, the Public Relations Officer of the Delta Police Command, said.
