Channels Television gathered that the late business man who owns a fleet of electronic shops in Minna, Port Harcourt and Abuja was said to have shot himself in the stomach.

A source in his residence said the gun sound alerted neighbours, who rushed to the residence of the deceased only to find him dead with his licensed gun by his side.
