Police have arrested a 30-year-old Nigerian student who allegedly stabbed his compatriot to death over a petty row in East Bengaluru in the early hours of Sunday. 

BBM student Samuel Afor was living with Morrody, 39, who had arrived in India on a tourist visa. They had rented a house in Janakiram Layout near Hennur. The duo quarrelled over a trivial row on Saturday night, following which Morrody slapped Samuel. 

Other friends calmed them down but Samuel picked a fight with Morrody later in the night and stabbed him. Other friends took a profusely bleeding Morrody to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. The Hennur police have arrested Samuel for murder and are interrogating him.
