It was gathered that the man who is based in Germany had checked into the hotel on the 20th of September with an instruction that nobody should disturb him, but after four days, the hotel management started perceiving offensive odor from his room and immediately alerted police in Afikpo.

When police broke into the room, the man was seen carrying calabash with some money inside and with white cloth material on his head and waist.

Source from the area, disclosed that the hotel management heard the thunder strike from his window but because the guest had instructed that nobody should come to his room unless he called the hotel attention, they bothered not to check on him.

It was learnt that the last time he returned to Nigeria was in 2017 and that the family was not aware of his presence in the country, let alone being aware of his presence in Afikpo after 13 years.

It was further learnt that when the family contacted his friends in Germany, they expressed shock that they are not aware of his journey to Nigeria let alone lodging in Afikpo instead of Abakaliki, the capital city of Ebonyi State.

Source in Ikwo told Citizens’ Advocate that the family has gone to a seer to find out the course of Kelechis’ death as he has been the source of livelihood to the family.
