The father of two, Mr Azubuike Nwokolo aka Zubby More, has been found dead in a hotel room in Amichi, Nnewi North of Anambra state with scratches on his body.
The friend of the deceased, Nnaemeka Ikerionwu, announced the death of the deceased on social media demanding justice suspecting the hotel as the culprit.
PLATFORM TIMES gathered that the 41-year-old man decided to lodge at the hotel on January 13, after attending a party that ended late at night.
The friend, Ikerionwu, said when the deceased family did not see him returned home, they became worried.
“He went for a party and when it was late in the night, he couldn’t go home, so he decided to lodge at a hotel in Amichi, Anambra State. He did not return home which got his family members worried,” Ikerionwu said.
The deceased family then began to search around only to discover that he had died in the hotel where he lodged.
However, Ikerionwu said it aroused suspicion as the hotel management did not call his family even when they claimed that he slipped and died before taking him to the morgue.
Ikerionwu said, “It was an unknown person that informed the family that their son was lying in the morgue. The family went to the morgue and found out that his testicles were missing. They confronted the hotel staff and were told that he slipped on the bathroom tiles and died.”
He further said the body of the deceased was mutilated.
The family and friends are pleading to the police command in the state to investigate the case and bring the culprit to justice.
However, when contacted, the Police spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, said he had no got the report about the incident.
