The family of late Chime Amaechi wants justice for their son’s death. They have come out to deny that he died of drug abuse as reported in the media.
In an exclusive interview with NET, Chime’s father, Mr. Ameachi declared that reports of chime into drugs is false and definitely not a drug user.
“My late son was not a drug user. Like me, he didn’t even drink and when he did, it was always in very small quantities. He was a level-head, nice human being. Even when he left school and started business, he would always let me know his next line of action, so I am surprised that these lies are being spread about him,” he said.
His sister added “Chime is not that type of person…If you see drug addicts, they don’t think straight most times…Chime is not like that,” .
An obviously grieving father, Mr. Ameachi also spoke about his encounter with the Ikoyi Police Station and that as a Christian, he has left everything in the hands of God.
“I spoke to the DPO of Ikoyi Police Station when I saw the Punch story and he said investigations were still ongoing and there’s no way that can be correct. They even got the age wrong: they said he’s 25. My son that I gave birth to is just 23. He was 23 in February. We just want justice to be done,” Mr. Ameachi said.
