The Nation report that it gathered from the associate that late Orjil was a sickle cell anaemia carrier, and sometimes had moments of mental instability.

The same source told the paper that the deceased’s frustration included not being able to marry despite all efforts made by his bereaved mother who tried to find him a wife.

The report, which said Late Orji’s siblings among them his younger brother and sister( a medical doctor also) are married, said his frustration grew when he lost his father four years ago, and was blamed for the man’s death by some of his family members.

“Sometimes it happened like a convulsion, and it even embarrassed him at his place of work while he was busy with a patient. Although the family did their best to manage the situation, there were times when he and some members of the family exchanged words because they taunted him for acting abnormally.

“His frustration heightened when his father died about four years ago and some family members believed the burden of his health condition contributed to the father’s death. These were some of the reasons he told me at that time that he wanted to end it all, but I tried to encourage him with the word of God,” the paper quoted the source as saying.
