For the family of this young graduate of Marine Engineering Department of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, who had been dating his girlfriend since university, it has been indeed a bad week.
It all started ,according to witnesses, on Saturday, June 23, the late young man and his girlfriend had a misunderstanding which prompted the young lady to have him arrested by the police on allegations of constant harassments and threat to her life. The lady in question (name withheld) decided to arrest the deceased when he insisted that their relationship (which she was no longer interested in) must continue. Before the deceased was released from police cell, he was made to sign an undertaking that he would neither hurt the lady again nor go close to her. Thereafter, he left the police station in fury.
Neighbours who spoke on the condition of anonymity confirmed that the late lover was discovered dead when a friend came to visit him. According to them, the visitor alarm drew the attention of neighbours and passers-by to the shocking sight inside his room.
It is really sad, as there are reports that his remains will be thrown into the evil forest in accordance with the traditions of his people.
