22 year old domestic worker found dead in his boss' swimming pool

22 year old Onyeka Kingley Raphael (pictured above) was found dead in the bottom of a swimming pool in the home he worked as a domestic help. His body was removed early Saturday morning from a house on Babatunde Asimi Street, Ogudu GRA. 

His family, suspecting foul play, has petitioned the police, asking for a thorough investigation because when Kingsley's body was removed by policemen from Ogudu police station, eye witnesses said there were no visible injuries on his body except a twisted neck, suggesting that the domestic worker may have been strangled before being dumped in the pool.

What the family also found odd was that the dinner Kingsley made for himself the night before was still on the kitchen table, with his cap near it, and also the fact that the security man who was home at the time of the incident said he didn't see or hear anything. The family also claimed that Kingsley and his boss, a retired accountant named Tunde Williams had a misunderstand a month earlier which almost got Kingsley fired. Kingsley had wanted to leave his job but his elder had begged him to stay because he needed the money for school.

The police promised Kingley's family that an autopsy will be carried out to determine the exact cause of death and told reporters that a thorough investigation will be carried out. The police also mentioned that Mr Williams was so far 'not cooperating with the police'

All they need to do during Autopsy is check for water in his lungs, it will tell us if he was dumped in the pool after he died or he drowned. Twisted neck Ko, broken neck ni...Hiss

They probably had too many fowls in the compound...

Very sad... Looks like it could have been an accident though. Maybe he slipped and fell into pool, breaking his neck in the process. Unfortunately, even if his death is indeed suspicious, our criminal justice system doesn't favour people without means to push for justice. May his soul rest in peace and may God comfort his family and loved ones left behind.

What do the police mean by the boss- Williams isn't cooperating?! They should take him in for proper interrogation. They are there saying he isn't cooperating. If na rich man pikin, will they say he isn't cooperating? Wont he cooperate by force? Or if it where the boss found dead, will they say the domestic staff isnt cooperating?! No hope for poor man in this country!
Some of these ogas are drug addicts. They can do and undo! The poor guys family should do a private autopsy-if they can afford one that is.
I wouldn't trust the autopsy report from the Nigerian police. Especially when a rich man with swimming pool is concerned. #walksawayhissing&smh

Osenobua, have mercy on us, Investigators are working harder nowadays and this case will surely be unraveled. I smell something.

@anon. 2.17, linda never wrote fowl play, she wrote foul. Come to think of it, what u should concern yourself with is the understanding of the story and not to be looking for typographical blunders cos anybody can do the same mistake as the way you write might be different from the way you type and that is why the phrase 'typographical error' is in existence in the first place.

U leave the main story unattended to and u r buzy looking for blunders that can be made by just anybody. #versyllabus like you#

Oversabi, go there and check the lungs by yourself. We all watch crime series, park well

Some people do not understand that if you cannot swim, do not get into the swimming pool. Some people look at the water, do not realise how deep it is and then end up drowning. Many home owners with pools find the odd houseboy or security man dead at the bottom of their pools. They need to warn staff seriously about this crap.

From my point of view dont you think he decided to go for a swim while his boss wasn't at home????? and got drowned many people think swimming is a small deal, look at the Gulder ultimate search many of the intending contestants during the try outs said they could swim, but had to be rescued before they got themselves killed. Bottom line, there may be no foul play.

i think its because there is freedom of speech in Nigeria that is y some of u just open ur stinking mouth to throw up words. If you have nothing reasonable to say, simple write RIP and go ur way not to leave unnecessary comments here, it's not time for that ok.
King may ur gentle soul rest in the peace of the almighty.
whoever that is responsible should no that nothing on this planet can ever be hidden under the sun.
However i do appreciate the comments of some reasonable friends.

@ Tomi are you stupid? Someone insulted my tribe.. i should not insult back? Take a seat biko
