A Nigerian man has been found dead in his home in Lowell, Massachusetts on Saturday December 7th. The disturbing news came at the heel of the announcement, a few weeks ago of a young Nigerian woman who was also found dead in her home in Columbus, Indiana. 57 year old Benjamin Chibuogwu is from Awka in Anambra state, Nigeria.
Until his death, Mr Benjamin was a divorced father of five who lived alone in his apartment. His body was discovered after his brother asked a friend residing close to Mr Chibuogwu to help check on him because he couldn't reach him on phone. The friend and Mr Chibuogwu's landlord forcefully gained entrance into his apartment where they found his body.
Mr Chibuogwu had been dead for at least 3 days before he was found. Nobody knows how he died.
