News of the death of former Governor of Bayelsa State Diepreye Alamieyeseigha’s son has left many in shock.
Oyoms Alamieyeseigha, who is the second to the last son of the ex governor, passed away in Dubai, Punch reports.
It is unclear how he died. Some reports allege that he committed suicide in his father’s house in Dubai, while others say he was murdered at a different location.
President Goodluck Jonathan in a statement, expressed his condolences to Alamieyeseigha, and has promised to help find out the cause of the death:
“On behalf of his family and the Federal Government, Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to Oyamuyefa’s father, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha and his entire family on the untimely loss of a very dear son in the prime of his life.
The President and the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, share their pain and grief over the death of Oyamuyefa in circumstances that are still unclear.
Jonathan assures Chief Alamieyeseigha and his family of the full support of the Federal Government as they strive to unravel the true circumstances of the young man’s death.
He prays that God Almighty will receive Oyamuyefa’s soul and comfort his grieving parents and siblings.’’
This case is reminiscent of Aisha Falode‘s 19-year-old son Toba, a.k.a Tyler Fray, who died in Dubai under suspicious circumstances.
Hopefully, justice will be served in Alamieyeseigha and Falode’s cases soon.
