A Nigerian man identified as Ifeanyi Uchemaurice took to his Facebook page to narrate how he met one of his Vietnam-based friends on February 17th this year, who he later found out had died in January.
Read his story below…
I saw a friend who I never knew he is Dead.
On 17th February 2020 I met someone who I knew in Vietnam (tho we are not too close friends but we are friends), he held me from behind oga Buchi…., then I turned and shouted “Willy” what are you doing here were are you coming from, he said he is coming from Portharcourt that he is going to Awka. This is happening in Upper Iweka Onitsha in front of Ifeanyichukwu Motors.
He brought out gold from his pocket, and told me to buy or help him to sell it. he told me he saved money with it to complete his mother’s house before raining season and they have other expenses in the village to do soon, he told me he bought it 4000 Dollars. I told him that am heading to main market, let’s go together but he insist I should collect the gold that he trust me. So my friend who is with me said I should collect it.
I told him to collect my number so he will call me by then I will tell him how much they are pricing it. He said he will get his phone if he gets to Awaka. He do not know his number off-head….. I went to a nearby shop and got a pen and wrote my number for him. He left in hurry.
Later in the day he did not call me, (even till now)… I was so worried my friends told me may be he stole it or someone wants to set me up with it, I was so scared I contacted another friend who is in Vietnam and I knew that he is a little bit closer to him, we chat he then told me Willy died on 11th January (our chat is below). I can not believe it, he helped me to get his people’s phone number. until on 18th I spoke with his mom (tho she was only shouting saying… Uchechi who do you leave me for).
I was able to speak with his aunty who is a Revrend Sister. She told me my Son God will bless you….. What is the Value of what he gave me…. I said 1.440.000 Naira…. She cried as she said again My son you will never lack. She started telling me that Uchechi (they call him) is the only son, he came back on November, he will be getting married on 15th January. They killed him because he came back with Lexus. Her mother is a primary school teach who manage to build the house to linter level, and train her 2 daughters.
She told me that his car tumbled over 5 times (as they were told) and he died at the spot on his way from there Village to Porthercout. She told me that he has gone to dream to tell his mother’s cousin to tell his mom that they should not bury him in their father’s family house that, there is where they planned for his death. He also mentioned one of his uncle and said he is the person that keeps him in this condition he is.
But her poor mom do not have money to roof and do some finishing work in that building. It kept making them sleepless night untill I called them to tell them about this. Which they did not believe till yesterday 20/2/20 I met with 5 Members of his mothers family, I tried to look for buyers who will make it bigger in value.
On 19th Someone connected me to one Mrs Uju Turkey…… She is traveling to Turkey for business soon she bought the gold at the cost of 1.450.000, we went to bank in Head Bridge yesterday afternoon and she send the money to his mothers account number not any other person as I directed base on what Willy said to me at Upper Iweka. Tho they showed me some of his pictures both the ones he took during his secondary and his OND days. I was fully convinced that she is his mother.
They told he he will be buried on March been next month.
My people this world is full of Mistry…… Uwa di imirimious…
