There was commotion around Mission Road in Oredo Local Government Area of Benin City, Edo State, as a wheelbarrow pusher killed a tax collector.
The yet-to-be identified wheelbarrow pusher stabbed the tax collector to death before killing himself.
The incident was said to have caused residents and shop owners to hurriedly close their shops.
This was after an argument between the wheelbarrow pusher and the tax collector over alleged refusal by the former to pay N50 daily ticket.
Angered by the argument, the revenue collector reportedly kicked the wheelbarrow containing bags of items.
Responding, the wheelbarrow pusher brought out a knife and stabbed the tax collector to death.
DAILY TRUST reports that the wheelbarrow pusher later stabbed himself to death on the neck after realizing the tax collector was dead.
