House Help, 22, Found Dead In Employer’s Home Swimming Pool

House Help, 22, Found Dead In Employer’s Home Swimming Pool


Onyeka Kingsley Raphael, 22, (pictured above) was found dead Saturday morning at the bottom of a swimming pool in the home he worked as a domestic servant.

Kingsley’s lifeless body was removed from the pool which is located at a house on Babatunde Asimi Street, Ogudu GRA.

His family is however suspecting foul play and have petitioned the police – they claimed that when Kingsley’s body was recovered by policemen from the Ogudu police station, eye witnesses said there were no visible body injuries on the corpse but a twisted neck; a sign that the domestic worker may have had his neck snapped before being dumped into the pool.

Kingsley’s family also found it strange that dinner which the deceased had apparently made for himself the previous night, was lying cold on the kitchen table, with his cap beside it. The family also claimed that Kingsley and his employer, a retired accountant named Tunde Williams had a misunderstanding a month earlier which

almost led to Kingsley getting sacked.

Kingsley, who had wanted to quit the job was asked to hold on by his elder brother because he needed the money for school.

The security man who was on duty at

the time the incident is believed to have taken place, said he didn’t see or hear anything.

The police have promised a thorough investigation with a view to ascertaining Kingsley’s cause of death.

To achieve this aim, they have assured the deceased’s family that an autopsy will be carried out.

Meanwhile, the police have revealed that Mr Williams has so far not cooperated with them in their investigations.
