The friend, Rotr Obiagha Alex Ubaka, who is currently observing his National Youth Service Corps scheme, posted on his Facebook wall that he had at various times, warned Ibekwe on the dangers of cultism but his friend had shunned all his warnings which has led to sorrowful death that has plunged his family into mourning.

This is what Ubaka wrote on his wall:

"After all the advice I gave to you, you laughed it away and decided to continue with it. I can remember the day I came to visit you, coming back from PH, I branched over to say hi to you at Orange Groove.

You came back to Lagos but we could not see cos I was not around.

Now you are no more. Rest in peace Angel Obrien."

 

Do you think the murdered young man was cult member going by his friend's admission?»
