Morbid Envy: How 3 Evil Friends Watched Abuja Rich Kid Drown To Death In Hotel Swimming Pool

The police have arrested three University of Abuja students who watched as their mate got drowned in a swimming pool. It was all at a party for freshers. Emmanuel Aigbokhalode Balogun’s friends were watching as he struggled for life. They refused to help him. When they were satisfied that he would not make it, they shared his belongings. One took his telephone; another took the cash in his pockets. The third wore his shoes. They reported the matter to nobody.

When Emmanuel’s parents learnt that their son, 17, had not been seen in school, they began to search for him. The hotel directed them to the police who asked them to check the morgue where they got the shock of their lives – Emmanuel’s body.

It is not yet clear why these young men would visit such savagery on their friend. They were said to have claimed that Emmanuel was flaunting his wealthy background. Hence, they decided to go for the final solution. Morbid envy.

The three evil friends are symbols of the gross failure of parenting the society is yet to start tackling. I wonder the kind of lessons they got from their homes. No respect for human life. No good thought for a benefactor. No thought about the future. No loyalty to friendship.

Why would the hotel allow guests access to the pool at about 3 am. Where was the life guard? Where were the security staff?

After reading the heart shattering story of Emmanuel’s tragic fate, I remembered a message on somebody’s Facebook wall: “God, show me my friends, my enemies I can handle.” How apt.

The original source of the story is Mystik Biu, a family friend of the deceased.

    This teach everyone a big lesson, even parent as well,
    When you see that you are well financially able in life, please teach your kids how to behave among the less prevelage coz not all of them are happy seeing you at that position, and you know kids will always be a kid, but let give them some maturity touch up when they are teen,
    RIP Emma

      Really? Isn’t this blaming the victim again?

      Rather shouldn’t parents teach their children not to be courteous not to be friends for food?

      They claimed d guy does shakara but he took them to d hotel anc paid their bills. They collected it upon all his “shakara”?

      Then they shared hiscbelongings as what??? Spoils of war??

      These trio are evil and very immoral and should face the full cause of d law. They are old enough to know the difference between right and wrong.
