A 20 year old Imo state footballer who is a popular figure in the heart of football lovers in Imo state has been found death.

The footballer is identified as Chidubem Ezeagu, his remains were found in a shallow grave in a bush after he was assumed to be missing by his family.

Chidubem was a celebrated footballer he was widely known as Skippo because he was the captain of the team he played for.

He captained his team to two major cup victories in the state.

The incident took place at Umuelele Irete, in the Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State; this has left the occupant of the locality and family in shock and fear.

According to his elder brother Timothy he left home on a Sunday and never returned. His death body was found a week later.

“Chidubem left the house last week Sunday and never returned. We called his telephone number all through Monday, but he did not pick it. On Tuesday, his telephone number became unreachable and that was when we sensed danger. We reported a case of missing person at the Ogbaku Police Station. We equally reported it to the youth leader of the village. A search was conducted throughout the village. It was in the cause of the search that one man told us that some Hausa buried a corpse in a shallow grave. He said a man had called the Hausa people to identify a corpse on the ground. When they couldn’t identify the body, they buried it in a shallow grave to avert breakout of an epidemic,” Timothy said.

The CP of police has issued that the killing is cult related, and investigations are on- going over the case.

May his soul rest in peace
