A hotelier and a deacon  popularly known as Semikolo, has passed on in Delta State.

According to multiple reports, Joseph had fallen ill after his sons assaulted him for allegedly having a side chick. A source reports, “The sons graduated from a popular school in Ota. It is alleged that they caught their father with a side chick and demanded a million naira bribe or they’ll inform their mother who was at the time, holidaying in the United States.

It is said that the father called off their bluff and true to their threat they reported the sleazy affair to their mother who was enraged. The next day, the father dropped by at the depot of the wife and when the sons saw him, they hounded him out of the place.

According to insiders, he angrily went home and seized the keys of the cars of the sons which drew their ire and they descended on him with blows and kicks. He called the police and the boys injured one of the police men.

The boys were arrested and the father was rushed to the hospital. The condition of the father was deteriorating quickly and he was referred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital where he was fighting to live.

The wife quickly flew back to the country and facilitated the release of the sons from the police custody and strangely discharged the husband against doctor’s advise from UBTH where he was in a coma and brought him home in Ugbeyiyi, where he died. When friends of Joseph contacted his wife, she lied to them that they were in Lagos. We are calling on the relevant authorities to ensure justice is served on the matter.”

It is reported that days after the tragedy, Joseph’s wife reverted to her maiden name, dropping her husband’s name on all her social media handles.(
