A Nigerian man, identified as Henry Onyekachi, was reportedly stabbed to death by his Afghan roommate in Lisbon, Portugal.
It was gathered that the 29-year-old arrived in Portugal a few months ago as a refugee and was put in the same room with the 45-year-old Afghan refugee.
On Wednesday, December 8, the duo had an altercation over house chores and the fact that the Afghan had a negative influence on other refugees in the apartment.
The suspect felt offended by the confrontation and stabbed Henry in the back, who unfortunately died from excessive bleeding.
The Afghan has since been arrested for the crime.
