The debate about who is the better player amongst the two most famous footballers Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo had been in news for long. It had become out of control on the Sunday morning when a 34-year old Nigerian was killed by his fellow countrymen over the argument about who is a better player- Ronaldo or Messi. The incident had occurred the morning after a party after the celebration of Obinna Michael Durumchukwu’s 34th birthday on Saturday night.
Mostly all of the friends had left the place by the next morning while the owner of the house had retired to his bedroom. Michael and the accused, Chukwuma Nwabu were in the house and had started watching the football match. An argument broke out between the two friends at around 9:30 am. Michael said that the Barcelona star is a best player in the world and Nwabu was supporting Ronaldo, a Real Madrid star.
