She added that since the release of the autopsy, no investigative measures have been taken to fish out the perpetrators .

“My eldest brother went to into the mortuary to see his body. Upon identification, noticed that he had severe bruises and injuries to his body. He had a deep cut on his left eye. His lips appeared burnt. His hands and legs had marks like he had been tied up. This revelation led the family to request for an autopsy to determine if the cause of his death was asthma.

” Bugzy’s parents have questions and are dying for answers and this can only happen if the persons who were last seen with the deceased are made to answer them.

““All the persons who were last seen with the deceased still walk freely, enjoying God’s free air while they believe they have the right to freely take the life of another so brutally.”

Ikoiwak, therefore appealed with the governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel and Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba to help in unravelling the perpetrators of the murder and also to bring justice in the case.
