In the course of the fight, White London was said to have broken a bottle and stabbed Emma on the head which angered the creditor.
He also reportedly picked a piece of the broken bottle and stabbed the debtor on the neck, said a witness.
“It is N100 that caused the fight. White London owed Emma N1,100 and paid N1,000. Emma insisted he would collect the balance N100 and they started arguing.
“The argument led to a fight and White London grabbed a bottle, broke it and stabbed Emma on the head. Emma who was bleeding also took part of the bottle and stabbed White London on the neck which killed him on the spot,” said a source
