A sugarcane seller is presently on the run, for stabbing his 19-year-old customer, Umaru Abdulrahaman, to death on Wednesday morning in Wadata, Makurdi town, Benue state.

Local media reported that the teenage customer, a resident of 20 Kano street, Wadata, was repeatedly stabbed in the chest by the sugarcane seller over monetary argument.

We reliably gathered that the argument began after the boy purchased a stick of sugarcane.

Eyewitnesses disclosed that �They were actually arguing over the balance that was suppose to be given to the murdered young man. All we heard was a sudden loud scream and the young man fell to the ground.”

By the time residents rushed to the scene, the young man was already dead.

�Blood was already gushing from his chest and we discovered that the young man was dead cold” a resident disclosed.

On realizing the depth of his action, the sugarcane seller immediately fled the scene of the incident.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Benue State Governor on Public Utilities, Mr. Gadaffi Asemanya, who visited the scene said

�Youth of the various sects had mobilized themselves and were about to unleash mayhem in the town when I arrived in the area. I had to plead with them and calmed them down before the arrival of security personnel.”
