A report making rounds on the Internet is suggesting that drug addiction led to the death of Chinedu Etoromi, late son of former Aviation minister Stella Oduah, who died in an Abuja private hospital on Saturday.
Though it was initially reported that Chinedu died of fake drug overdose, an insider however said it was a cover up for the young man who reportedly lived a reckless life in his lifetime.
The source said Chinedu’s battle with Cocaine started when he was 22 and that his mother didn’t realise until he turned 26, a problem she hid from the preying eyes of the public till she lost him.
Chinedu popularly called Max by friends returned to Abuja last year after graduating from a college in the United Kingdom from where he continued making friends with “bad guys”. At a point, his mother reportedly enabled his reckless lifestyle instead of sending him back to his biological father.
To cut the long story short, he reportedly overdosed on a white substance suspected to be cocaine yesterday before he was rushed to Nigerian Turkish Nizamiye Hospital in Abuja where he was pronounced dead few hours later.
The family source said, Stella Oduah reportedly made a deal with some officials of the hospital to announce that Max died of fake tooth pain medication overdose in a bid to cover up the shame and the stigma attached to such lifestyle.
May God comfort the family of Miss Stella Oduah during this trying period.
May Max’s soul rest in peace (amen).
