The family of a 500 level medical student of Benue State University (BSU) Makurdi, Apostle Victor Egbe, who died in the early hours of October 12th, said he was murdered as there were deep cuts on his body
Egbe, the founder of Campus Witness Church reportedly went to pray for a sick student at the university clinic when he slumped and died shortly after the prayer.
The body of the deceased had since been deposited at the Benue State University Teaching Hospital morgue. However, a statement issued by Pastor Emmanuel A. Egbe on behalf of the family disagreed with the report alleging foul play:
"The family of late Mr. Godwin Egbe is greatly disturbed with the conflicting details of the story about the sudden and mysterious death of their son victor Egbe a five hundred (500)level student of BSU," the statement reads.
"One version says that, He slumped inside the school clinic. While another version said he came outside, prayed for a while, lean against the wall then slumped. And then yet another version said he slumped at the entrance of the clinic.
"However, the family is still bewildered at the spectrum of inconsistencies in the entire saga. A close observation of the corpse, revealed a SHARP DEEP CUT in-between the chin and the neck, that made him bleed for over ten hours, which the family suspected, he (Victor) must had been stabbed and a major vein cut within his neck region. Also, that his clothes was soaked in blood from his shoulder downward indicates, he started bleeding while standing
"In the attempt to uncover the mystery surrounding the death, the family is being frustrated with a perceived conspiracy, that the family members are alarmed and flummoxed at the attitude of most of the eye witnesses that refused to meet with them. Another baffling scenario, is the sudden disappearance of one “Pastor” Solomon, who is believed, was with Victor when the incident occurred. Despite the numerous calls put through to him (Solomon) to show up, proved abortive and up till now, he still at large. Also of equal disturbance, is the call put through, to Victor’s assistant, a female pastor by the same person he (Victor) prayed for, shortly after his death, to inquire if Victor had arrived home safely, but later astonishingly states, Victor slumped in front of him."
Meanwhile, the university management said they were still investigating the matter and will make their findings known in due course.
