Former governor of Bayelsa State, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, has debunked the claim by Dubai police that his son committed suicide.

Tragedy had struck his household on Sunday, when one of his sons, Oyamiefa, was murdered in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he was a student.

According to Leadership, the late Oyamiefa, 30, who was reportedly killed in the house belonging to his father in the Arab country, was the only person living in the luxury apartment. He was murdered by unknown gunmen who stormed his apartment on Sunday night.

Oyemifa’s body had been found in a street by the police who searched him and found his identity
card. Using the identification card, the police were said to have traced his home only to discover that he came from “a big family”. It was gathered that shortly after ascertaining the background of the deceased, the policemen left but later came back to tell his family members in Dubai that Oyemifa had committed suicide. The policemen reportedly based their claims on an autopsy they said was conducted on the body.

However, Alameiseigha, who was said to have taken the incident heavily, was said to have rejected the policemen’s claims. When contacted through a text message by a Leadership correspondent, the aggrieved former governor said:
“He was killed in Dubai.”
Alameiseigha had left for Dubai immediately alongside his first son, Tonbra, to determine the circumstances that led to the death of his son. His wife was said to have cried inconsolably.
