Nigerian government to help unravel Alamieyeseigha son’s death

Former Governor Diepreye Alamieyeseigha

President Goodluck Jonathan has condoled with a former Governor of Bayelsa state, Diepreye Alamieyeseigha, over the death of his son in Dubai, the United Arab Emirate.

In a statement by his spokesperson, Reuben Abati, Mr. Jonathan said the Federal Government would help the Alamieyeseigha’s family in getting to the root of their son’s death.

Earlier, Mr. Alamieyeseigha confirmed his son’s death, but declined to provide details.

There are conflicting claims of how Oyamuyefa Alamieyeseigha died. While some reports say he was murdered, others claim he committed suicide.

President Jonathan said he received the news with shock and immense sadness.

“On behalf of his family and the Federal Government, President Jonathan extends heartfelt condolences to Oyamuyefa’s father, Chief Diepreye Alamieyeseigha and his entire family on the untimely loss of a very dear son in the prime of his life.

“The President and the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan share their pain and grief over the death of Oyamuyefa in circumstances that are still unclear.

“President Jonathan assures Chief Alamieyeseigha and his family of the full support of the Federal Government as they strive to unravel the true circumstances of the young man’s death.

“He prays that God Almighty will receive Oyamuyefa’s soul and comfort his grieving parents and siblings,” the statement by Mr. Abati said.

    What goes around comes around!

    This is not d first Nigerian to die in dubai, what’s so different abt dis one dat d FG wants to help to unravel his death? What happen to d numerous Nigerian death we heard abt outside shore of dis country?

    • Ologbonlolode

      Exactly my feelings! Has the Federal Government able to help or resolve any of the numerous deaths at home? While one condole with the bereaved, issuing such statements is only a pointer to one thing, these people don’t get it all. Reuben Abati has turned 360 degree round and can’t think properly again.

    • Dan Fulani

      This is a Niger Deltan death.

      • babansa

        Yes, because only Niger Deltans are Nigerians. All other innocent people killed by the Nigerian military and BH do not deserve symphathy because they are not Nigerians. Useless, cluess, insensitive, corrupt et al government.

  • Dumbo

    May his gentle soul RIP. May his father be brave enough to visit the scene of his son’s death in Dubai. May the British police lose their sight as they try to apprehend DSP in Dubai as he strive to unravel the cause of his son’s death. Somebody say AMEN!!!!

    • Mosaku 147

      Amen ooooooo!

  • Mosaku 147

    May his soul rest in peace. I can’t imagine how his dad and mum will be feeling now.i pray the good Lord to grant them the fortitude to bear their loss.
    How about Aisha falode’s son? Now that Jonathan wants to get to the ‘root’ of how Alams son died,he should please add Aisha’s case to it.

  • Guguru

    If I were Alams, i would travel to Dubai to claim my son’s body to show that I love him. If Alams is afraid of being arrested for his previous crimes, then the question all of us and members of Alam’s family ought to be asking is: Does Alams love his son enough or does Alams just love himself more? We would like to know who Alams loves more.

    • Mosaku 147

      He loves himself,PDP and his cohort in the villa more than his immediate family.

      • Guguru

        This seems to be what I am seeing.

  • taewo

    How come the government didn’t unravel the death of Aisha Falode’s son who also died recently in Dubai? Anyway, it was Alams who taught Jona how to corner public funds.

  • dele

    Aisha Falode cried out, so loud that nobody in the Presidency deemed it fit to give her a word of succour.. This government is known for its insensitivity to ordinary people. But when the brother of the Vice President, a private citizen died, they shut down Federal Executive Council meeting to expresse condolences to the VP as if his personal affairs has anything to do with running Nigeria. For all I care, Alams entire family can perish in Dubai. Thieves, rogues and vagabonds. They pilllage Bayelsa with all the revenue coming to that state.. why wont they all die mysteriously? Ole gbogbo

    • GbemigaO

      Thank you. I do not want to say anything more. This government is just unbelievable . Nobody responded to Aisha Falode’s son issue. Now they are falling over each other to do what?

  • Chris1408

    Mumu president and his administration. First unravel Boko Haram in your backyard before trying to unravel the death that no one cares about. Any one that benefits from looting of our treasury is just as guilty as the looter.

    • idcwebmanager

      if it your son or your brother will you talk like this, please human for once

  • Werty

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  • Denja Abdullahi

    May be if appropirate action had been taken when Aisha Falode’s son died in questionable circumstances we wouldn’t be talking of this, may the souls of the departed rest in peace and God grant the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
