Friends of a man identified as a tailor named Azubuike Nwokolo, alias Zubby Moore, are currently demanding Justice for him on social media after he was reportedly found dead in a hotel room in Amichi, Nnewi North Local Government Area of Anambra State.

This is according to a post on instablog by one of his friends, Nnaemeka Ikerionwu.

Ikerionwu in the post said the father of two attended a party in Amichi on Thursday, January 13, and decided to lodge at a hotel when the unfortunate incident happened.

‘It was late in the night and he couldn’t go home, so he decided to lodge in a hotel in Amichi but never returned home to his family, causing them to express worry, and consequently commence a search party.’

A search was launched and it was discovered that he lodged in the hotel but the hotel management did not contact his family or the police before taking him to the morgue. It was an anonymous caller that informed the family that their son was lying in the morgue.

The family went to the morgue and found out that his testicles were missing. They confronted the hotel members of staff and were told that he slipped on the bathroom tiles and died.

The family suspected something was fishy as they found wounds on his body. They are now appealing to the Anambra State Police Command to take up the case and ensure Justice is meted out to those responsible, Fides gathered from a source.

When Fides reached out to the state Police Command’s spokesperson, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, for confirmation, he said he had no idea of the story.
