The North Cyprus Police had noticed stab wounds on the deceased's body, hence the spread of its dragnet which revealed that the young man was stabbed to death by not less than six of his countrymen.

Sketchy reports coming out of that country has it that at a party on December 24, there was a fight between Mendeinyo and another Nigerian over a girl said to be a Zimbabwean.

On the 26th, the other Nigerian in company with five other men, first drove to Mendeinyo's friend’s house, kidnapped him and forced him to take them to the house where the student lived.

They made the guy they had abducted to knock so that the victim would open the door without suspecting and when Mendeinyo opened the door, he was allegedly stabbed and his throat slit.

After that, they threw his body to the ground floor to make it seem that he had jumped.

Meanwhile, the police reportedly reveal that MC Jerry had been charged with murder, trespass, kidnap and serious assault.
