 “I have always lived in the village. My father died when I was in primary five.
“When I finished my secondary school in the village in 2013, my brother, Anayo, brought me to Lagos so I could learn a trade.
“I met Nonso (Monyasa) here when I started work as a sales apprentice and we became good friends. But on Sunday, Ejike, who was Nonso’s boss, came to pick a seat in my shop and asked Nonso to take my seat for himself.”
He said the deceased came and punched his lap, asking him (Toluchukwu) to release his seat to him (Monyasa).
Toluchukwu said he resisted and when he checked his phone in his trousers pocket, it was switched off.
“I told him my phone had developed a fault because of the punch he gave me, but he walked away.I went back to my seat and told him the next time he did that, I would beat him up. He said I could not beat him.
“He came and hit me with blows, and I gave him a punch in the stomach. He held his belly and went inside their shop,” “We were playing that day. I did not have any intention of killing him,” he added.
The victim’s boss, Ejike, took him home when his condition worsened.It was learnt that about 30 minutes later, the victim was driven back to the shop, where the suspect was also picked up en route to the hospital.Monyasa was confirmed dead at the hospital.

“The boy’s family have been informed in the village and they   told me to withdraw the case because they are not interested in pursuing court matters.”
