According to the PPRO, the decomposing body of BrakinFace was discovered by his sister at his apartment on Otomiewo Street, Ekpan in the Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State after three days of fruitless searching.
Friends and family members have been searching for the Warri-born comedian, BrakinFace since Friday, according to him, who has not been seen or heard from since Friday. His mobile phones have also been unreachable since Friday, prompting them to launch an investigation into his disappearance.
Several of his former colleagues claimed they had not heard from him, and the search team was said to have contacted them.
Everyone in his apartment had been under the impression that he had passed away since Thursday.
When they couldn’t find him anywhere, friends and family members went to his house and broke into his apartment, where they discovered his already-decomposing remains.
One of his colleagues, however, said there was no mark or injury on his body but they suspected he might have been poisoned. The remains of Brakin Face have been deposited at a morgue while they are undergoing an autopsy, in the meantime.
On the 27th of November, the deceased was scheduled to host his first show, titled “Outsyd with Brakin Face,” in Warri, with A-list artists expected to attend, according to reliable sources.
Since then, several of his friends and associates, including Yung6ix, Kevino, Mr Jollof, and Isokoboy, have expressed their condolences on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.
