According to the DAILY POST, the young man, who was 29 years according to his family, returned from the United Arab Emirates in late 2022, at the request of his family as another travel arrangement was being put together by the family to see him join his two other relatives abroad.

He was of royal lineage, his uncle is the traditional ruler of Umuosu Okayiuga Nkwoegwu, the family disclosed.

On Sunday, 26th March 2023, Izuchukwu was shot dead by a security staff of De Choice Fast food Company, Umuahia where he worked for 4 months.

Izuu, as many of his friends called him, was employed in December 2022 through an arrangement by his elder sister who wanted him to be busy with a little job while his travel documents were being processed.

However, an alleged drug addict who was the security officer at De Choice turned the nuzzle of a pump action gun on Izuchukwu and ended his life in cold blood for demanding to be paid salaries owed him for four months.

He was allegedly killed after being accused of stealing a missing mobile phone which reportedly belonged to the manager of the outfit, an accusation the young man denied even till he breathed his last.JAMB Result

They have registered their anger by destroying some property in the restaurant where Izuu was killed, including a car while threatening more action if the matter is swept under the carpet.

A visit to the family of the deceased by a DAILY POST correspondent gave more insight into events that led to the unfortunate incident and Izuchukwu’s eventual death.

At the palace of HRH, Eze Nzenwata Mbakwe, the traditional ruler of Umuosu Okauiga Nkwoegwu and also an uncle to the deceased, our correspondent learned that the royal father was at a Police station in the city seeking justice for his nephew.JAMB Portal

At Izuchukwu’s immediate family home, the mood was that of mourning and anger as well-wishers gathered to commiserate and pay condolences to the grieving family.

An uncle to Izuchukwu, Professor Roy Mbakwe, who spoke to our correspondent demanded life imprisonment for the killer security officer who murdered his nephew.

He also demanded the immediate disbandment of the Abia State vigilante service.

The Professor who confirmed that the fast food restaurant owed his late brother 4 months’ salary, condemned the action of the management, asking why workers should be owed their wages for so long.

He condemned the attitude of the proprietor of De Choice who he alleged is now begging the family to accept compensation.

Prof Mbakwe described the plea of the proprietor of De Choice as an insult to his family, pointing out that the owner of the fast food company is yet to visit the family on condolence but was only talking about compensation.NYSC Portal

“He is talking about compensation, why did he not pay him salaries when he was alive? Mbakwe asked.

Also aggrieved over the incident is Uchenna Mbakwe, an elder brother of the late Izuchukwu.

He wept uncontrollably during the interview and was barely able to speak to our correspondent.

Uchenna maintained that his brother never stole any phone as was alleged by the Manager of De Choice.
