Forgive me. In case you are the one who found the body, I am really sorry. It had to be someone, you know. I have chosen Jo Nketaih’s poem as my suicide note: “They said you came looking for me. I didn’t drown; I was the water.” Where do atheists go to when they die? lol. Amen.”
According to one of his friends,Akachi consumed two bottles of a poisonous substance and he was rushed to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku Ozalla where he gave up the ghost.
