Okoye, who was also injured in the battle, is recovering in a hospital.

He called on Governor Chukwuma Soludo, the police and non-governmental organizations to rescue his family by prosecuting his brother.

He also urged well-meaning people to transfer him to a better hospital where he could make a full recovery.

He said: “My brother is not the firstborn in the family, but he claims ownership of the entire compound and is still fighting with all of us despite several attempts at reconciliation.

“This crisis led to the death of my wife.

“I want relevant stakeholders to come to my rescue so that our five teenagers do not suffer.”
