The death of one Michael Arowosaiye has sparked controversy as the cause generated ripples, particularly on social media.

Late Arowosaiye, a graduate of Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, was found dead hanging himself with the belt on Tuesday at Sunnyvale Estate, Lokogoma District, Abuja where he lived.

The scene suggested that the gospel artiste with the Redeemed Christian Church of God in one of the church’s Abuja parishes committed suicide.

Unconfirmed report has it that the deceased fell into depression on account of accommodation problem.

But the suicide angle is not getting traction with some of his Facebook friends who are suspecting murder, and have taken to the deceased’s page to express their reservations.
Reproduced below are some of the posts:

Joy Amaka Izuegbu Yhemmie Yhellow sis I don’t believe the story behind his death at all

Ronke Aluko Hmmmmmm I’m still wandering why he had to hang himself because of accommodation issue. I think there is more to this. O deep gan ooo

Austin Willie Yhemmie Yhellow I don’t believe it’s suicide. Someone killed him

Rebecca Adewunmi Onimayin Michael was murdered. He didn’t kill himself. He is not the kind of person that can do such. It is either someone forced him to hang himself at gun point , or they killed him and hanged him there so it could look like suicide. I don’t believe this shit story. Anything can happen in the ministry. Enemies everywhere even in church, some people can’t take it when they see you outshine them. They just want to steal your shine by all means
