  1. Some one must have pushed him,if it happens in Nigeria, police must know the route of It for persecution but concluded to be a sucide in india .may God help us.

  2. He was my senior in high school. Very cool and generous dude, still can’t believe He actually took his own lif. I suspect foul play,, known him for years and he doesn’t act depressed. Always have a smile on his face….never a dull moment around him. R.I.P bro.

  3. Life as it comes and go just like that, a young student is gone. May his departed soul rest in peace, Amen!!!. Come to the talk of the day regards to suicide that is been claimed by the police of India, that is a very big lie, just because it is common with their people so they think they can fool the Nigerian people, where has it been heard before that a Nigerian committed suicide in Nigeria just like that not to talk of being in a foreign land. They should find something else to lie with, O.K. That boy must have been murdered by Indian and nothing more. In my life, i have never seen people who are as jealous as this Indian, they envy every foreigner they see, as long as he is putting on clothes and staying a good house, they deprive us of many things that their people enjoy back there in our country. And to worsen issues, our so called high commissioners are just there for them own self and nothing more, they even sell us to the people as if we are without fathers, mothers and government. This is just a little that you people had heard of, this people kill our brothers here, they nobody ask how and who did it. They just say send his body home and that ends the case. I beg the Nigerian people to help us fight from home for our right as foreigner abroad because the Indian enjoy too many freedom and here we don’t even have an air to breath. Our High commissioner is just there and eating money and that is all. When you call to them, they tell you, send us email, whereby the said email address associated to the Nigerian Embassy ( is not working. Pls we the Nigerian here, want the contact number of the Minister for Foreign Affairs because we need speak with him. Kelvin is not the only Nigerian that has murdered here, there are some that nobody could say a word about, in mostly Bombay India.

  4. Was one of my closest buddies back in secondry way dis is me, dis dude is funny like crazy.miss u biggo.I remenber our last coversation showed no signs of depression.every badorian will miss u.

  5. @HILDA D, TO BE DEPRESSED DOES NOT NECESSARILY THAT ONE IS SAD. Being happy is also a sign of depression.

  6. Shortly before his purported suicide he sent a text to his father that he was being threatened by his landlord. Dear Lord is it a crime to be a Nigerian?

    • Believe me McAnthony,YES,it is a crime to be a Nigerian,especially if you live outside Nigeria. If you now live in some Xenophobic,racially divided self loathing society like I do,you begin to clearly see life better that home(Nigeria) is best.
      Here in Mandela’s land, the only people that like us marginally are the women(for obvious reasons….lol).
      On the flip side,our brothers that are also into dirty deals are not helping our image,but in the eyes of people who are looking for an excuse to maltreat Nigerians already, any excuse is as good as any.
      we must form a group that will take Nigeria back from the politicians] ineptitude as well as exploitation by foreigners. Hit me up at if anyone is interested.

  7. These stinking Indians are living like Lords in Nigeria yet they can not accommodate a common student. I don’t blame them. I blame our grossly inefficient government. May God grant you rest and give your family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
