Nigerian murders his Nigerian roommate in India over soccer

A 34-year-old Nigerian was stabbed to death by his drunk roommate and fellow Nigerian following an argument over footballers Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Reports have it that the victim, Obinna Durumchukwu, was celebrating his 34th birthday on Saturday and  he and the accused, Michael Chukwuma (22), were partying at their rented flat at Mahesh building, Ostwal Nagri, Nalasopara, India. The pair decided to play football in the common balcony on the building's third floor while both inebriated.

While playing, they argued over who was a better player  Ronaldo or Messi and it quickly turned heated. That was when  Obinna allegedly threw an empty glass liquor bottle at Michael. The bottle missed Michael, hit a wall and smashed into pieces. Michael then picked up a glass piece and slashed Obinna's neck. He died on the spot.

The Tuling police said that both Obinna and Michael's passports had expired this year and they has been staying in the country illegally. Micheal is in police custody.
