21 years old girl stabs brother to death over some petty arguments

I wonder what push siblings to hit on each other.. Pride, illiteracy or jealousy or sheer stupidity? It was a black Tuesday for the family of Ogbe in Ugbuwangue, an Itsekiri community in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, as what was considered by neighbours as the usual quarrel and fight between two siblings ended fatally.           
Omasan Ogbe, a 21-year-old girl, allegedly stabbed to death her younger brother identified as Laju following a fight over daily domestic chores.
THISDAY gathered that Omasan, described by a family source as a tomboy, was embittered that her younger brother floored her in a brawl following an argument over the washing of dishes.
Before the argument degenerated into a fierce fight, Omasan was said to have directed the younger brother to wash the dishes, but the boy reportedly refused claiming that he had fetched water into the drums in the house and was too tired to wash the dishes.
The disagreement led to a brawl with the boy allegedly flooring his sister who eventually chased him round the compound before seizing a knife from the kitchen and allegedly stabbed Laju in the chest.
The boy thereafter screamed for help, the family source said, and neighbours, who were not initially alarmed at what they considered the usual bickering of siblings, eventually rushed the victim to the Central Hospital Warri.
However, Laju, said to be the only male child of the family, was pronounced dead by the doctor on duty apparently because he had lost so much blood.
Nonetheless, the Delta State Police Command spokeswoman, Celestina Kalu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), confirmed the incident, saying the police had already commenced investigation into the incident.
