Just like doubting Thomas in the Bible, most Nigerians have expressed disbelief over the reported death of former Bayelsa Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha.
Here are reasons why some Nigerians smell something fishy about Alamieyeseigha death:
1. Alamieyeseigha is perceived to be a cunning man following his escapade in Britain years ago. The UK authorities during the week made a move for his extradition to answer to criminal charges leveled against him and by the weekend he’s pronounced dead?
2. There are different versions of his death – some media reports say he died after a brief illness, The Punch says he had high blood pressure while Channels Television says he died of a heart attack. The only piece of information common in all the reports is that he died.
3. No photos of him at his hospital bed or of his corpse.
