The Albino Foundation in Lagos has demanded that an Immediate Investigator be launched into the suspicious death of a Member,  23-year-old albino, Ugochukwu Ugogbua.

Ugochukwu Ugogbua, had allegedly  committed suicide on Sunday Aug 16th.

Members of the Albino Foundation, visited his house yesterday and  demanded to know what made him kill himself.

There were rumours that Ugo had killed himself because his parents wanted him to join Jehovah’s Witnesses, a claim his family has since denied.

At Festac Police Division, Lagos State Coordinator of Albino Foundation, Mrs. Omolala Joseph, said:

“We are here on behalf of the national headquarters of Albino Foundation in Abuja to find out what exactly led to the death of our colleague. “Though he was not a registered member of the Foundation, he was an albino like us, therefore, we have a duty to pay a condolence visit to the family, counsel them and orientate them. “Things like this cannot just happen. We need to know the exact cause so as to help re-orientate others.”

A member of the family, who simply gave her name as Oluchi, said:

“We have read a lot of reports on my brother’s death. I want to categorically state that he did not kill himself because he was forced to become a Jehovah’s Witnesses member. “It was not also because he was stigmatised as an albino. The truth is that what led him into the act were powers beyond him and he never left any note for us concerning his death.”
