One of the residents who described the 60-year-old late lawyer as a no-nonsense man, said
“ he had been warning his son against taking illicit drugs but he wouldn’t listen. There had been an altercation between them several times.
Michael is the first child. The couple had three children. He had gone to three private universities but could not complete his education because of illicit drugs.
At a point, he said that his family hated, even when his parents did all they could to make him useful.”
A member of the deceased’s family also said,
“It is unfortunate that my brother and his wife lost their lives in the process of trying to ensure he turned a new leaf.
Michael has been a thorn in the entire family’s flesh. If you cautioned him, he would snap at you and warn you to mind your business.”
