It appears a time out that started with excitement ended in a sad mood, with a life lost.

On Saturday, Police in Bayelsa confirmed the death of a former aide to Governor Seriake  Dickson  of Bayelsa Mr Nasko Egei at Aridolf Resort Wellness and Spa, a hotel operated by former First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.

News Agency of Nigeria says it got reports that the deceased had checked into the hotel with a female companion believed to be his lover.

The spokesman for the Bayelsa State Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident, saying that investigation had started to unravel the cause of death that occurred on Friday.


Butswat, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, however, said it had not been established what led to the death of the deceased.

He said that efforts were being made to trace the female friend who was with the deceased to help the police unravel the cause of death.

It is too early to speculate, the police spokesman said.

“It has not been established whether he was poisoned or not. At this point, we won’t be able to establish whether he was poisoned and who poisoned him.

“But we will look at the people he was with the previous night before the incident.

“By the time we carry out a post-mortem investigation, that will determine what substance actually led to his death. The investigation is ongoing,” Butswat said.
