The family of late 58-year-old Timothy Kalio, who died some days ago, have appealed to the Inspector-General of Police and Rivers State Government to investigate the mystery surrounding his death.

Late Kalio was said to have died at an undisclosed hospital in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, where he was taken to following an undisclosed sickness.

The family also said after his demise, his corpse was deposited in a morgue without the knowledge of any of his children.

Speaking on the development, one of the children of the deceased, Dr. Belema Uduje, said all efforts to communicate with her late father on phone and Facebook, prior to his death, proved abortive.

According to Dr. Uduje, who is the first child and daughter of late Kalio, “we suspect foul play. This was a man full of life.

“A week before we were told of his death, all efforts to reach him on phone and Facebook were futile, as his phone was switched off and his Facebook account deleted.

“But few days after his death, his phone came on; this was extremely puzzling. Why would someone deliberately switch off his phone and delete himself from social media?

“We were told that he complained of headache and was rushed to a hospital where a CT scan was done, and the scan result showed bleeding from both sides of the brain, which was caused by trauma.

“We were also told that a neurosurgeon requested that surgery be done to drain the blood and we were told our father consented to it and he died after the surgery was performed.

“Even after he died, his body was taken to the mortuary. All these happened without us being informed. He had no life threatening medical condition. He was a healthy fun-loving man.

“Following his death, we tried to seek answers to questions surrounding the cause of death from his second wife, but got none.

“Circumstances surrounding his death are suspicious. It is very impossible for a healthy individual to bleed in the brain.”

Dr. Uduje appealed to the IG to order Force Criminal Investigation Department, FCID, to carry out full scale investigation on the mysterious death of her father.

She also called on her professional association, Nigerian Medical Associa-tion, Port Harcourt branch, to assist her and family members in investigating the cause of her late father’s death.

Also, two of the deceased’s daughters, who are lawyers, also appealed to the Port Harcourt branch of Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, to join in fishing out the supposed killer of their father.
