Ikechukwu, a well-known Nigerian rapper, has expressed his sorrow over the death of his wife’s cousin, Obinna, who was discovered dead at 1 a.m. in a boarding school in Imo State.
The school’s stories about the cause of the boy’s death, according to the rapper who also appeared in Mo Abudu’s blockbuster film The Wedding Party, had too many holes in them.
Ikechukwu wrote on his verified Instagram profile, sharing a video of the 14-year-old child,
THIS IS SO SO SAD. THIS IS OBINNA, 14 YEARS OF AGE , MY INLAW , COUSIN TO MY WIFE. THIS FOOTAGE IS OF HIM AT MY WEDDING. HE WAS FOUND AT 1AM DEAD IN HIS BOARDING HOUSE OF HIS SCHOOL. CLASS – SS2, IN SENIOR HOSTEL, QUEEN OF THE HOLY INNOCENT SECONDARY SCHOOL OGWUME IN IDEATO LGA. BEATEN UP , BRUISED. SO MANY HOLES IN THIS STORY. AND FRANKLY I’M SICK OF THESE HAPPENINGS. NOW IT HAS COME TO MY DOORSTEP . I URGE EVERY MEDIA PORTAL TO HELP BRING LIGHT TO THE HAPPENINGS SURROUNDING THIS EVENT AND EVERY OTHER EVENT CONCERNING THESE CHILDREN WHO WE CONFIDENTLY GIVE TO SCHOOLS TO LOOK AFTER.
