Police arrested a Nigerian man, Aliased Batista, and charged him with murder after he allegedly struck a fellow Nigerian man, Ude, with a brick on his head during a dispute at Kempton Park, Johannesburg South Africa.
It was gathered that Ude had allegedly stood surety for Batista to borrow money from some people but he reneged on the agreement to pay up.
However, when the pressure became too much on Ude, he approached Batista to honor the agreement, which led to the two getting into a physical confrontation before the suspect allegedly strikes the deceased with a brick on the head.
Batista is expected to appear before the Kempton Park Magistrate Court today, where he will face a murder charge.
The incident happened on Monday, just before 7 pm.
The incident occurred in front of police officers, who had been trying to calm the situation down as the men squabbled.
The victim died at Arwyp Hospital just after 3pm, on Tuesday.
