Channels TV reported that the man had jumped from his apartment located on the 9th floor after his Nigerian babymama lodged a complaint about him.
Consul General representing Nigeria in Johannesburg, Godwin Adama, said the police invited him to the scene of the incident, an invitation he granted.
Adama said he was informed that the Nigerian had committed suicide.
But, when he arrived at the apartment, he found out that the deceased had been very worried because he was having some problems with the Nigerian lady he shared a baby with.
Adama said, “He had seized the lady’s phone but later that night, they met and she was struggling to get back the phone. He beat her with a bottle or whatever.
“On the basis of this, the roommate, Oscar, in his testimony, said he took Omoike’s babymama to the police station to make a report that she was battered and was bleeding.”
Adama said that according to Omoike’s South African girlfriend, the deceased had vowed to kill himself if the police came.
He said he was invited by the police to note that they didn’t take any action other than the invitation they received by his fellow Nigerian Oscar.
Adama also stated that the police were carrying out an autopsy to know the cause of Omoike’s death, “after which the Independent Police Investigation Directorate will hand over the case to another department for further investigation.”
