Leonard, who fielded questions from newsmen, said Iorkohol was under his care for about eight months and was treating him of a mysterious illness
“Mike (Iorkohol) was sick and I was treating him for eight months. I was giving him medicine because he had a bulging stomach. He told me that he was in a secret society and begged me not to tell his family members about it. They know me in his family. I advised him to go back to the cult and return whatever belongs to them.
“He also told me that they had given him an hour to die on Sunday and he would die. He begged me to kill him but I declined because I am a Jukun by tribe and it is a crime to kill in my place. My friend, Agbo, was there when everything transpired. Mike asked my friend to scratch his back, saying if he didn’t and the hour given to him to die passed, his daughters would also die,” Leonard told journalists.
