Family of 14 year old boy accuse students of murdering their son

According to reports, Utibeabasi Imohowo Sampson- aged 14-year-old, died under mysterious circumstances in a swimming pool at Pinnacle Hotel, Edet Akpan Avenue, Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, after honouring an invitation for a party.

Sampson’s parents who have reportedly refused to accept the story that their son drowned in the pool, accused the other students who were present at the party of murdering their son and dumping him in the pool. 

According to the family, the students who were all reportedly dressed in black at the party, did not attempt to draw attention or ask for help while their son was drowning. They reportedly told the security man that Sampson was still enjoying a swim in the pool when the security man asked after him when they were leaving.

The bereaved family sent this out, accusing the police of attempting to cover-up the crime: 


 “A week ago today, my sister-in-law’s nephew, Utibeabasi Imohowo Sampson, was murdered by 7 children ages 14 to 16 at Pinnacle hotels, Edet Akpan Avenue Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. The murderers, including a girl, all dressed in black, had lured the 14-year-old boy to the hotel under the pretext of a get together, only for him to be left dead in the pool. The heartless murderers who are students of Monef Secondary School, Uyo, and children of influential people in the state, were about leaving the hotel without their victim when the gate man who noticed they were 8 when they came in, accosted them and asked them of the eighth person. The heartless demons mentioned casually that he may still be in the pool and laughed. Even if this boy drowned, why didn’t they raise alarm and seek for help? Where were the staff? The life guard said he went to ease himself, for how long? The police, as usual, are trying to cut corners. 

When the case was transferred to the state police headquarters, the parents transported the children in their private cars instead of police vans. The hotel is still open for business instead of being cordoned off and sealed for investigation. In saner climes the hotel management and staff would be investigated, but they are still going about their normal business. The Nigerian police force is trying to play games with the boy’s family. Why didn’t the hotel staff chase away 7 underage children dressed in all black? A boy that drowned did not swallow water but had blood and foam spewing from his mouth; there was no alarm raised by his purported friends, the hotel staff claimed not to have heard or seen anything.
