Nigerian entrepreneur shot himself over rape allegations

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, United States, has said a Nigerian entrepreneur, Izuchukwu Madubueze (aka Izu), shot himself dead in a suspected case of suicide over an allegation of sexual assault.

A Twitter influencer and self-acclaimed female rights activist, Nanichi Anese, had on June 29, 2020, tagged the 23-year-old as a sexual offender.

The creative designer was said to have been bombarded by calls from his friends, who queried him about the allegation.

Izu then contacted Anese, whom he claimed to be a friend, to get the details of his accusers.

However, she said she had sworn to protect the ladies, just as she also claimed that the women declined his request to speak to them.

Izu, in a series of tweets, expressed frustration over the matter, insisting he had never abused any lady in his life.

“I am still pretty clueless as to who this is, so if you feel comfortable enough, please feel free to reach out to me so I can understand wherever I went wrong and make amends and do better overall,” he tweeted.

The Anambra State indigene later tweeted through Crowdfire app on July 17 that he had killed himself.

The officer, who did not identify himself, however, said there was a case of “shooting” which was handled by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.
