Singer Chika Ofor Poisoned to Death at an Event 

A popular Abia singer, Chika Ofor has been confirmed dead after he was allegedly poisoned during a wake keep in Amauzukwu in Umuahia, the state capital.

Chika Ofor was said to have slumped on his band’s stage on Friday night, some minutes after coming up to perform at a wake-keep event for a 94-year-old man.

It was also claimed that Ofor, after collapsing, allegedly started vomiting and was brought down the stage by some people at the burial. He was eventually helped into his car to regain consciousness, from where he was found dead in the morning.

Mr. Ofor who is in his late 30s was said to have foamy substances on his mouth when found lifeless.

It was not established if the late singer was suffering from any major health challenge before his death, but there were allegations on social media that Ofor may have been poisoned through food even before climbing the stage.

A source who spoke with ABN TV on Saturday said Mr. Offor shortly before the commencement of his performance allegedly vomited a substance that looked like noddles.

A police source said a team of detectives had been dispatched to the scene of the incident. Upon arrival, however, it was discovered that his corpse had been evacuated allegedly on the instruction of the traditional ruler of his community who was quoted as saying he doesn’t want a police case. His corpse has been deposited at the mortuary.
