Police are searching for a Nigerian man who killed his supposed friend in a quarrel over money in East Pattaya.
Nmamaka Onwuhafua, 32, is accused to slashing and bludgeoning Jude Chukwu, 32, at his house in Ekmongkol 4 Village on Soi Khao Talo May 14. Cut with a knife in the arm and smashed in the head with a rock, the victim was taken to Banglamung Hospital where he died.
Police are hoping to find this man, Nmamaka Onwuhafua, before he flees the kingdom.
Two female beer bar workers who accompanied the Nigerians to their house told police that Chukwu had asked Onwuhafua to repay money he had borrowed. When Onwuhafua replied that he didn’t have the cash, an argument ensued and turned violent. The two women fled the house back to their bar.
At the house, investigators found broken beer bottles and a blood trail stretching 300 meters from the house to the village’s wall. Neighbors had called the police to help Chukwu.
Immigration police are searching for Onwuhafua, hoping to catch him before he flees Thailand.
