Honorable Sele-oge Tom, the half brother of Sen. James Manager, who represents Delta South Senatorial District in the Senate, was stabbed to death at Ogriagbene town in Bomadi local government area of Delta state, after a land dispute with a family member.
The incident occurred on Friday, causing turmoil in the neighbourhood as a result of retaliation by the deceased’s son, who slaughtered his father’s killer while also injuring his hand.
According to a community source who asked to remain anonymous, the deceased, a former Councillor and maternal brother of Sen. Manager, was involved in a feud with a paternal family sibling over a small piece of land on the community shoreline.
“They clashed today (Friday) over a family piece of land, and after they were separated from the fight, one of them went home and returned with a knife, stabbing Sele-oge in the ribs.
“When his kid saw his father being stabbed, he went home and returned with a machete, butchering the perpetrator.
“They were both taken to the hospital in Bomadi, the local government seat, but Sele-oge died on the way, and his remains were already put in the Bomadi General Hospital mortuary.
“While the other is critically ill in a private hospital in Bomadi,” he explained.
