Abuja - A Delta State man has met his demise at the hands of his own family members after they killed him in revenge for the killing of his brother over farmland, Vanguard has reported.
Opipi Ajomo is alleged to have killed his younger brother, Eravwokpo Ajomo, over the sharing of a plot of land in the Ughelli LGA that once belonged to their father.
The deaths followed soon after a falling out between the two men over the land, which Opipi was already farming on.
