A  friend of  the deceased who  maintained  anonymity, said Akachi posted a suicide note on his Facebook wall shortly before he committed suicide.

The suicide note reads: “Forgive me. In case you are the one who found the body, I am really sorry. It had to be someone you know.

“They said you came looking for me. I don’t drown, I was the water,
“Where do atheists go when they die! Lol. Amen.”

“Thank you for trying. Amen.”
