A bereaved mother, Ngozi Awa has reported on her Facebook page that her son, Obinna Okereke Awa, a 20-year old student of Abia State University is dead. Punch reports that he was allegedly murdered a few weeks ago and according to his mother’s Facebook message, his roommates killed and buried him.
The post read:
“I have just been informed that my second son, Obinna Awa is dead. He was lured and killed, and buried exactly two weeks today by his roommates (names withheld), flanking him here. (In a photograph posted on the social network site).
“All (the suspect) are fourth year law students of Abia State University. They feigned ignorance of his whereabouts. My son was to be 21 years old come May 7, 2013.”

Even in my pains
Even in my shock
Even in my sorrow
I still say: Thank you, Lord!
God! How I cried and tore myself up
How I searched and searched
How I paryed and prayed
How I hoped and hoped
chest heaving, tears dripping…
Now, after denial of knowledge of where my son was
After scampering away from school for two weeks
Obinna’s blood has started chasing them out to confess of how they took him out.
Obinna Awa of all people!
Obinna my strong son!
It is well.
I am coping Obinna.
Daddy is devastated.
You should have seen the visitors to the house today
Heard the incessant phone calls, some we answered, others we could not lift our hands or voices to respond to.
How can students plan to eliminate another’s life?
Did you insult any of them?
Did you wink at their girlfriends?
Did you, Obinna, boast to them?
God, console my poor son!
God, touch our hearts.
What a touching tribute. We pray God consoles her and that his soul Rests in Peace.
