According to an eyewitness, the deceased who is also a teacher at Lott Carey Secondary School in Uwanse, Calabar South Local Government Area had went out with friends in celebration of birthday of the school principal at Calabar Mutala Mohammed Highway in the State’s Calabar Municipal local government.

Durue merriments and celebrations, the celebrant and his guest also took to the hotel pool to swim where the young man was later found dead during departure time. 

The Principal of the School, who was the chief celebrant explained that when they found him inside the pool that he was already dead. 

He said, 
“We searched everywhere and when we looked into the pool, he was in a sitting position.

“Ekpe was brought out of the pool and strangely it was discovered that he was dead.

“We pressed his stomach to gorge out water and instead of water, it was blood that came out. Strangely too, there were no marks or any wound on his body”, Jones added.

After autopsy, the management of the hotel reported that the deceased was drunk and was asthmatic too which lead to the tragedy. 

However, the deceased’s father, Mr Lawrence Asuquo Ekpe disagreed with the report of Manager of the Hotel that 

He said, 
“My son was asthmatic that was why he drowned.

“Can a man live with his son for 25 years without knowing the health status of the child?”

“My son plays football. Does an asthmatic patient play football? He jogs every morning, does asthmatic patient jog? Certainly the hotel is not saying the truth of what took place there”, 

He also confirmed that his son, Kingsley was not sick before leaving the house that day
