A market chairman simply identified Mr Okpako has reportedly died during a sexual romp with his wife’s salesgirl.
Mr Okpako until death was the chairman of Igbudu Market Mile ‘2’ in Warri South council area of Delta state.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on Sunday night at a hotel (name withheld) located at Odibo Extension in the Igbudu area of Warri.
However, different versions of the circumstance surrounding Okpako’s death were narrated. Some claimed that he died before the planned sexual escapade.
One of the sources said, “It’s like he took some drugs as well as Indian hemp. I learnt he ran out of the hotel room like someone who wanted to die.
“They rushed him to hold him but before they knew it, he went unconscious. He was confirmed dead in the hospital.”
But another community source insisted that the market leader died during the sexual intercourse. The source had claimed that Okpako took hard drugs and smoked heavily before the incident, adding the young lady ran out to call for help when she noticed the man was dying on the bed.
Acting Police spokesperson, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident, adding that the girl is in their custody.
“It is confirmed. The man died in a particular hotel. While we cannot tell for sure until autopsy, I think he took some drugs,” Edafe said.
