Onyeka Kingsley,22, a domestic worker found dead in his boss' swimming pool
The 22 years old domestic worker in Ogudu GRA, Lagos Onyeka Kingsley Raphael was found dead in the swimming pool of his boss, one Mr. Tunde Williams, on Babatunde Asimi Street, Ogudu GRA.
The cause surrounding his death is still a mystery as family members strongly believe there was a foul play which lead to the death of the young man. The Police have since been invited to carry out an investigation to unravel the mystery behind the death.
Onyeka Kingsley Raphael, an indigene of Umunede in Ika Local Council of Delta State, was found dead last Saturday and his body lying on the floor of the swimming pool with his stomach showing no sign of protrusion, suggesting that he did not drown.
Eye witness revealed that there were no physical injuries on any part of his body except a twisted neck, suggesting that he might have been strangled before dumping him in the pool.
Also, other evidence at the scene of death revealed that the food Onyeka had prepared for himself was still placed on the table with his cap next to it. These are questions which need urgent answers to
According to family sources, the young man had gone to live with the Tunde Williams family in March in their Ogudu GRA residence following an arrangement for him to be employed as a domestic worker.
Williams, a retired chartered accountant, is married to two ladies, one of whom reportedly runs a company that produces toiletries.
Though, there is no autopsy report yet, but Onyeka’s family members strongly suspect that his death must have been master-minded by some unseen hands given the manner his boss, Williams, allegedly conducted himself when members of the deceased family rushed to the scene as soon as information got to them about the ugly incident.
The security man who was reportedly at home when the incident occurred said two men came in a vehicle to see Williams that same day but were told he was not at home and the men reportedly insisted on going into his office as they were there to do some assignment.
The two men allegedly went in and left after some minutes before the security man discovered that Onyeka was dead in the swimming pool.
The police also mentioned that Mr Williams was so far 'not cooperating with the police because Mr Williams was virtually angry with the DPO when he insisted that autopsy should be carried out on the deceased. Because the DPO insisted on following the due process and ensuring justice in the matter, Williams was said to be unhappy with him and refused to provide the money for the autopsy.
