Popular Nigerian Rapper, Ikechukwu has lamented over the death of his wife’s cousin, Obinna Obiefuleh who was found dead by 1 a.m. in a boarding school in Imo State.
Ikechukwu took to his Instagram handle where he shared a video of the deceased at his wedding. According to the rapper, Obiefuleh, an SS2 student Queen of the Holy Innocent Secondary School Ogwume in Ideato LGA, Imo State, was beaten up, bruised and found dead at 1 a.m. in his boarding house.
Narrating the sad incident, Ikechukwu wrote, “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. This is outrageous. No child should have to die, talkless of in this manner where they are supposed to be safe and cared for. I implore all media and bloggers to please help pursue this to the end. MAY HIS SOUL FINALLY REST IN PEACE.
MY DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO THE ENTIRE FAMILY. #JUSTICEFOROBINNAOBIEFULEH.”
Recall that a few months ago, a 12-year-old student of Dowen College, Sylvester Oromoni reportedly died from injuries sustained in an attack by five senior students of the school for allegedly refusing to join their cult.
The 12-year-old boy died on November 30, 2020, after efforts to save his life failed. His father had claimed that his child was beaten and fed a liquid chemical but Dowen College dismissed the claim.
The school on their part claimed the boy sustained injuries while playing football with his colleagues.
The clearance was contained in a Legal Advice of the Director of Public Prosecution, Lagos State, Ms. Adetutu Oshinusi.
