One hour after that massage his Nephew who was with him said his countenance change and showed sign of depression and he complained that he didnt like the way he was feeling and called Ebuka his Nephew and they rushed him to Faith Mediplex along Airport road”
“But unfortunately he was brought in dead before he arrive the hospital. This happened between 11:30pm to 12.00pm.
The doctor confirmed that Stephen was dead after doing their check-up. Since he wasn’t a patient in the hospital, protocol would not allow them to write any report or give a death certificate.
“They said we should go and get the Police which we did and they inspected the body and took the picture before they took him to the mortuary. For better preservation we are moving his body to Stella Obasanjo hospital. We will still do a proper press conference as it is befitting his personality.
“We are not embalming now until the experts come and do the proper toxicology on the body. At that point, we lay everything to rest. We don’t want to speculate because we are not medical experts only proper autopsy can tell the actual cause of death. He never showed any sign of ailment”.
