The lawyer, @Addlinbaby, said the police found the young man dead in his room on Tuesday, February 25.

How he was discovered dead in Canada

@Addlinbaby narrated that his family got worried after they could not reach him for four days and informed the police. The police got to his apartment and found his lifeless body.

"His phone and laptop were missing. Family is devastated, they need closure, they want to see his body, but they can’t.., they’re just living in mere words. The police said an autopsy will be done, and investigation carried out. But the family really needs help," the lawyer lamented on X.

She urged the Nigerian embassy to step into the matter as the circumstances surrounding his demise are fishy.

For those still intending on relocating to the North American country, Canada has updated its requirement for proof of funds.
