A Nigerian man has killed a fellow Nigerian in India during an argument over who is better between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
The Mirror reports that a fight broke out between the two Nigerians at a birthday party in Nalasopara, an area of the Indian city of Mumbai.
Local police chief Kiran Kabadi revealed that a man known as Obinna, who was celebrating his 34th birthday, threw a glass at Cristiano Ronaldo fan Nwabu but missed after a heated discussion over the players’ respective merits.
The 24-year-old Nwabu picked up a piece of the broken glass and attacked Messi fan Obinna, gashing him and leaving him to die on the floor of his apartment.
Nwabu has been detained by police.
Fierce arguments over who is better between Ronaldo and Messi are regular occurrences in Nigeria but no cases of death have ever been reported.
