Tragedy as fight over a piece of land leads to the death of two brothers under mysterious circumstances.
Reports say the two brothers suddenly slumped and died just seconds apart.
A resident at where the incident happened said the brothers identified as Iorhemba Adóón and Jima Adóón, started fighting when the latter rented a tractor to plough his rice farm but was confronted by the former who on the grounds that the land was their father’s and as the eldest, he must inherit it.
This got Jima, annoyed and he therefore in turn said he deserves it more as he stood by their late father who experienced difficulties before he died.
The brothers were said to have engaged in a heated argument which led to the use of charms as they made incantation as eye witnesses look on.
During the incantation, the elder brother slumped and in within some few seconds, the younger one also slumped. Both were rushed to a hospital where doctors pronounced them dead.
Confirming the incidents, the Spokesperson of the Benue State Police Command, DSP Catherine Anene, said the corpses have been deposited at the morgue for autopsy as further investigations into the matter get launched.
