According to The Nation, a lingering kingship battle erupted in a protest by traditional chiefs of Agbarho Kingdom against the alleged imposition of a traditional ruler only two weeks ago.

However, it was unclear whether Friday’s murder was related to the kingship dispute.

DSP Bright Edafe, a spokesman for the Delta State Police Command, confirmed the incident but said there was no football match in the story.

“They all stay in the palace,” he explained. I believe they are aware of their own abilities. A ball is unlike anything else. They were in the vicinity of the palace and had a minor quarrel. “That’s what prompted the shooting,” Edafe explained.

He also stated that the suspect is being held by the police.
