His corpse was recovered from the pit toilet by men of the Nigeria Police Force, the Divisional Headquarters, Rumuji in rivers State, amidst cries by family members and lot of sympathizers, who were shuddered by the despicable act.
The Niger Delta Voice gathered that the deceased, who hailed from Omuogbo, Ibaa, also in Emohua local government area, followed a friend to Ovogo community to intercede in a dispute between his friend’s sister and some boys in the community.
Sources said the deceased, who proceeded with his friend to Ovogo barely after he returned from Port Harcourt on the ill-fated day, entered the compound, where his friend’s sister was living with the boys and was sitting on the pavement when one of them pounced on him with a machet.
