Apparently, Emmanuel Aigbokhalode Balogun’s father is a very wealthy man in Nigerian and the girls were all over him. This annoyed his friends to the extent that they watched him drown without lifting a finger to help him during the party. The friends were exposed by a CCTV camera at the Dome Hotel pool



We live in very trying and perilous times. A very dear friends undergraduate’s 17-year-old son got drowned at the Dome hotel pool in Abuja last weekend.

He was in the company of his friends. The friends didn’t report to the hotel management what happened nor to the deceased’s (Emmanuel Balogun) parents. They went back to the school (Uni Abuja) hostel immediately after the incident.

On Monday a young girl from uni Abuja called the mother of the deceased that they did not see Emmanuel her son in class. She went further to tell the parents it’s like something has happened to Emma and ended the call.

The mother called back the line but it was switched off. She notified her husband and they immediately placed a call to their son’s number and it was off. They drove that Monday night to their son’s hostel but met his absence.

What I saw and later heard yesterday was unbelievable. From the CCTV, we noticed the deceased entered the pool with three of his friends and around 3.33: am he started struggling in the pool. His friends were all watching him until he stopped struggling and drowned.

They all left the pool immediately and one took his handset the other took his trousers and brought out the money inside the pocket and wore his shoes. They left the hotel around 4:18 am according to the footage we saw. The police went to the school and arrest of the trio and management of the hotel.

At the DIG’s office yesterday afternoon, I heard something that has been giving me cold shivers all through yesterday and right now. One of the boys said that he wanted to raise an alarm to save the boy but the other two boys asked him not to. That the deceased is always doing shakara because his father his rich, he went further to say that the other one said all the girls are always admiring the deceased so he should let him be joor. These are just mere 17/18yr old boys!!!

Watching the CCTV footage where the friends were watching him drown and collectively decided because there was a time they grouped together to discuss for about a minute and from the confession of one of them is not only traumatic for me but also disheartening. They watched their “Friend” die out of jealousy & envy ?. According to them, it was the deceased that paid 2k each gate fee for them and also bought fish and juice which they all drank. These are mere teenagers with that kind of heart.

My people, be extra careful for people you call your friends. According to the DIG, A lot of people are being murdered daily cos of envy from friends. No doubt, There are good and wonderful friends but also, know ye, there are also friend-enemy everywhere. So be extra careful and prayerful cos the love of many has really waxed cold.

The young man was buried today amid tears! According to the wishes of his parents but his wicked friends & hotel management are still in police custody at the force headquarters as we speak. May none of us bury any of our children or young ones in Jesus name. Amen.
