Delta man arrested after teenage friend dies of tramadol overdose in apartment



The Delta State police command have arrested a man identified as Samuel following the death of his teenage friend after allegedly overdosing on tramadol in Samuel’s apartment.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the deceased died on Thursday, April, 7, 2023, “at about 2.00 pm in the afternoon” in Samuel’s apartment located at Okuku Street in Ovwian town in Udu Local Government Area.

A resident of the area, who gave her name as Jane, told our correspondent that the deceased, who was known as ‘Bros,’ was seen on that Thursday taking the drug after the culprit, Samuel, had sent someone to buy drug which he and his friend (the deceased) took.

She narrated that after the duo had taken the drug, Samuel went to play football in a nearby field but on getting home not long after, he met his friend (the deceased) lying unconscious in his apartment. Unfortunately, the victim was later confirmed dead by a nurse in the neighbourhood.

Also commenting on the incident, a neighbour, who would not want her name in print, told newsmen that she “knew that it would come to this with the way Samuel and his friends took drugs and misbehaved. It was way too much for any sane person,” she observed.

Our correspondent gathered that the suspect, Samuel, was still being kept in custody at the Ovwian Police Station as of the time of filing this report.

Efforts to get details of the incident from the Divisional Police Officer, Ovwian Division, Mr. Ayodele Kunle was futile however, when contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.
