Emekeme Joseph, popularly known as Semikolo, a hotelier and deacon, has passed on in Delta State
According to multiple reports, Joseph had fallen ill after his sons a§§aulted him for allegedly having a side chick. A source reports, “The sons graduated from a popular school in Ota. It is alleged that they caught their father with a side chick and demanded a million naira bribe or they’ll inform their mother who was at the time, holidaying in the United States.
It is said that the father called off their bluff and true to their thr£at they reported the sleazy affair to their mother who was enraged. The next day, the father dropped by at the depot of the wife and when the sons saw him, they hounded him out of the place.
According to insiders, he angrily went home and seized the keys of the cars of the sons which drew their ire and they descended on him with bl%ws and k#cks. He called the police and the boys inj¥red one of the police men.
The boys were arrested and the father was rushed to the hospital. The condition of the father was deteriorating quickly and he was referred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital where he was f#ghting to live.
The wife quickly flew back to the country and facilitated the release of the sons from the police custody and strangely discharged the husband against doctor’s advise from UBTH where he was in a coma and brought him home in Ugbeyiyi, where he di£d. When friends of Joseph contacted his wife, she lied to them that they were in Lagos. We are calling on the relevant authorities to ensure justice is served on the matter.”
It is reported that days after the tragedy, Joseph’s wife reverted to her maiden name, dropping her husband’s name on all her social media handles.
