Rema calls out political party over the death of his father
Nigerian singer, Rema, has called out the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over the death of his father, Justice Ikubor.
It is reported that the deceased was a high-ranking member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State and former General Manager of the state-owned Ethiope Publishing Company before his death. He was found dead in a room at a hotel in Benin City, the state capital in 2008.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, Idubor checked in with a female friend at about 8:30 p.m on the day he died. The lady reportedly left the hotel premises after spending some hours with the deceased. When there was no sign of the presence of the PDP chieftain the next morning, the room in which he lodged was forced open by the staff of the hotel and his lifeless body was found on the bed.
Reports also state that empty cans of popular energy drink/stimulant littered the hotel room.
However, in a now-deleted tweet shared today, Rema stated that the PDP needs to explain what happened to his father in the hotel room.
