while many who understood that Obonguwana is still alive and yet to carry out his intention, those who did not read deeply to understand the note continued to pray the soul of the assumed deceased man to “Rest In Peace”.
Meanwhile, Report Nigeria Facebook page was one of the various platforms that shared the information.
However, our effort to reach Mr. Emmanuel David yielded fruit when his brother who simply gave his name as Joseph reached out to our correspondent.
According to his brother, the hard working Emmanuel is a renowned media personnel who became depressed after someone stole his hard disk that contained over 2.5 million Naira work yet to be delivered.
Worried by the difficulty of paying his clients such an amount from the biting economy of the nation that is not kind to an average citizen, and considering the fact that the pressure from his clients may send horror into his life, Emma resorted to his decision.
Nevertheless, the Suicide note and the pressure from internet users did more good than harm.
One thing leading to the other, the robber returned the stolen disk. And the situation was saved.
In a follow up massage which he dropped after recovering the stolen item, Obunguwana stated thus:
ABOUT YESTERDAY’S NOTE:The Lord is still in action, investigations has been made, and the person behind the stolen disc has returned it. Am sorry for the stress and heart attack i’ve caused the whole world.
I declare that i will not die by accident or by any means, anything negative is not my portion now and always. Amen I am Evergreen media the surviving one#akwaibomphotographer#dronepilots#evergreen#youngentrepreneur#bellanaija#photographylover#blogger
Now, people who saw the last post of the media personnel are happy that at least his life is not lost as a result of his loss.
Today, Obonguwana Emmanuel David is alive and healthy. He has also moved on with his life and work since.
We also give gratitude to God for his life while thanking internet users for their massive pressure that led to the recovery of the item.
