A PHYSICAL fight between brothers over cigarettes culminated in one brother running over the other brother with his vehicle.
As a result, the 31-year-old driver is expected to make his first court appearance at Oshakati on a charge of attempted murder after he rammed into his brother.
Omusati Regional Commander, Commissioner Titus Shikongo, said the incident happened on Sunday around 16:00 at an open space at Iipumbu village in the Elim constituency.
“During the fight, the suspect went into his motor vehicle and started spinning it. He later allegedly proceeded to chase the victim with the vehicle and bumped him in the process,” he said.
The victim sustained serious injuries after he was hit against the windshield and fell to the ground.
He was transported to the Oshikuku Catholic hospital where he received medical treatment before he was discharged.
