The Delta State Police has confirmed the recovery of the decomposing body of 23-year-old Delta State-born comedian and social media influencer, Onomuakpokpo Ogheneochukome, popularly known as Brakin Face.
The Police Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, told journalists that the popular comedian was found dead in his apartment on Sunday morning.
According to the PPRO, after three days of fruitless search, the decomposing corpse of the comedian was discovered by his sister at his apartment on Otomiewo Street, Ekpan in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
He stated that the Warri-born comedian was not seen to come out of his apartment since Friday while his mobile phones had also not been reachable since Friday, thus prompting friends and family members to embark on a search for him.
The search team was said to have reached out to other colleagues of his who claimed they had not heard from him.
His apartment had been under lock and key since Thursday with no one suspecting he had died.
After searching to no avail, friends and family members visited his house and broke into the apartment where they found his already decomposing body.
One of his colleagues, however, said there was no mark or injury on his body but they suspected he might have been poisoned. Meanwhile, Brakin Face’s remains have been deposited at a morgue awaiting autopsy.
It was gathered that the deceased was billed to host his first show titled “Outsyd with Brakin Face” on November 27th, in Warri with A-list artistes expected to attend.
Several of his friends and associates including Yung6ix, Kevino, Mr Jollof and Isokoboy have since taken to social media to mourn his death.
