A Monchy resident, identified as Samson Polius, is reported to have been hacked to death this evening.
It is alleged that Polius, said to be in his twenties, had been involved in an argument with another young man of about the same age when the incident occurred.
Residents of the neighbourhood told the Times that the attack occurred at about 9 p.m.
Polius was chopped several times about the body, including the neck, the residents have said.
The victim is reported to have been attacked in the yard of his home.
The alleged assailant is said to have returned home where it is reported that he began vomiting, apparently after the full realization of what he had done hit home.
He was subsequently taken into police custody.
