Nigerian rapper and actor, Ikechukwu Onunaku has taken to social media to seek justice for his wife’s 14-year-old cousin who was found dead in the boarding house of his school in Imo state.
According to Ikechukwu, the deceased, Obinna Obiefuleh, was a student of Queen of the Holy Innocent Secondary School, Ogwume in Ideato Local Government Area of the state and was in SS2.
He said he was found dead with bruises on his body and it’s believed that he was physically assaulted.
However, Ikechukwu claims the school is not giving a valid explanation for the tragic incident.
Taking to his Instagram page, he shared a video of Obinna at his wedding and 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”
