Chidike Emmanuel, the fast-rising Nigerian content creator, has been killed in Mpape, Abuja

The skit maker was said to be among six persons attacked by some armed men last Saturday in the federal capital territory.

A source familiar with the incident told our correspondent that Emmanuel was killed at the location of a project he was supposed to feature in.

The insider disclosed that the men who were armed with machetes initially demanded money to allow them to shoot at the location.

The content creator was said to have given the armed men N2,000. However, what transpired that led to Emmanuel’s death remains unknown.

It was gathered that some of the cast members who ran for safety suffered injuries.

Some users close to Emmanuel took to X to mourn the deceased while demanding justice.

“Chidike Emmanuel Obinna I have known you since 2018. You are such a calm and kind soul You couldn’t attend my wedding because you were far away but you sent me your gift, #Justiceforchidi,” Helen wrote.

On her part, Rakeli added: “Obinna Chidike Emmanuel, please don’t die, please. Pick my calls, reply my chat and tell me all that I am hearing is a lie. Biko I am losing my mind”.





Efforts to reach Josephine Adeh, the FCT police spokesperson, to comment on the matter have been unsuccessful.

Calls and messages to Adeh’s phone have not been responded to as of the time of this report.

The development comes a few weeks after Junior Pope passed away after a boat accident on the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state.

The actor and some crew members were heading to a movie location when the boat accident occurred.

His family disclosed that the actor’s final rites will be held on May 17.
