Apparently, the village head and his executives, the DPO of Ika Divisions and the entire community were confused why Aniekan should took his life without telling anybody the reasons.
Today been Monday was the said date and day for clearing of compound for the preparation of the up coming burial on Friday.

He died and left his poor mother without saying a word to her and his relatives.
May his soul and that of his father rest in perfect peace Amen.
