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.
However, the official Statement From The Family Of Izuchukwu Madubueze counters the narrative making the rounds that Izu “did not commit suicide because of the false sexual harassment allegations” comments aimed to smear his name. RIP Izu
