Sources within NABDA told Daily Trust that police homicide detectives were still investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 59-year-old Orji.

Reports said he had been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to report at its Abuja office on the day he was found dead.

However, one of the staff of the agency, who pleaded anonymity, said Orji could not have killed himself as no suicide note was found at his residence.

When contacted, NABDA’s Acting Head of Communications and Protocol, Nkiru Amakeze, declined the comment.

“So, what do you want me to tell you now? Please, I can’t speak on it,” Amakaeze replied.
