A  22-year-old girl who has been arrested for the alleged murder of her biological brother is currently helping the police in their investigations.

Jatou Sonko, a resident of New Yumdum, it was alleged, last Saturday murdered his brother, Karamo Sonko, aged 28, by stabbing him with a knife in the chest.

This was revealed by police public relations officer Superintendent Sulayman Secka at a press conference held yesterday in Banjul, quoting information gathered from their mother.

According to the mother, the sister of late developed a bad attitude, looking at the way she dresses.

Consequently, her mother called the brother (Karamo) to advise her.

During the process, the brother beat her up, and the sister then declared: "Before you kill me, I will kill you."

PRO Secka said that shortly after the beating, the sister grabbed a knife and stabbed the brother on the left side of his chest.

Karamo was rushed to Brikama Health Centre, where he was clinically pronounced dead.
