An Onitsha businessman, Ikechukwu Ezeanyagu, has died in his room after he allegedly lost N36m to his business partner living abroad. Ezeanyagu reportedly remitted the money to his business partner who refused to send the goods he promised.
The incident happened at Nwaora street in Awada layout in Onitsha, Anambra State, southern Nigeria, where he resided with his wife.

P.M.News gathered that Ezeanyagu remitted the money to his partner to send some spare parts and other goods to him in Nigeria. But he waited for several months without any response from his friend.
When Ezeanyagu contacted him, he told him that he used the money to trade in hard drugs from another country and the business failed. The partner pleaded with Ezeanyagu to bear the loss as he had already incurred heavy debts abroad.

P.M.News gathered that after Ezeanyagu received the call, his body became bloated and he went inside his bedroom where he was later found dead by his wife.
The late Ezeanyagu hailed from Akukwa village in Umuchu town in Aguata local government area, while his partner is from Achina town also in the local government area.

Ezeanyagu was based in Ontisha with his wife who had no child for him even though they were married for several years. His corpse has been deposited at the Visitation Hospital mortuary pending when he will buried.

Another Igbo business man, Chigozie Ezeanyagu, based in Lagos, also died recently in similar circumstances after he was duped.  He lost N21m in his own case.

The incident happened in Ejigbo, Lagos, southwest Nigeria, where the late Chigozie lived with his wife.
