She stated that her son, who was an usher in the Pentecostal church, never gave her any trouble while live, adding that the notice of his extremely reserved and shy nature while alive, gave her concern.
She said, ‘
‘Why would my dear son commit suicide? He cannot do that. I know him.
“He was manipulated and God will fight for us. I will forever love my son. I know he was too reserved. I forced him to talk to me. I asked him if he was facing any threats anywhere or he didn’t like the school he was attending but he said no.
“Since he entered the university, his reserved nature got worse. He was neat and obedient. He is a son I wish to have again and again,” she sobbed.
