A witness, who preferred anonymity said; “Neighbours of the deceased became curious when they discovered that his door was opened and was not seen around the premises.”
“When the neighbours entered the apartment they found the lifeless body of Apkan in a pool of his own blood with his legs tied and they promptly raised an alarm which attracted the attention of the members of the community who reported the matter to the Police.”
The deceased, who was said to hail from Cross Rivers State, served at the Christ the Saviour Secondary School, a private School in the community.
It was gathered that late Apkan’s death was connected to an alleged romantic affair with a young lady in the school which apparently had not gone well with another rival who was said to have been dating the said young lady before late corps member was posted to the community.
