However, giving an account of what happened, Rabi said: “The incident happened early in the morning during prayer time. Power supply was restored in our area and I wanted to charge my phones, while Salisu also wanted to charge his.

Unfortunately, we were arguing over who should use the charger first when Salisu drew out a knife and I snatched it from him and stabbed him in the stomach and he later died.
