A man’s body, identified as Stanley Eteimo, was found floating in a private beach in Cyprus on Thursday (August 8th).
The 28-year-old budding singer and an IT student in Girne American University had gone to a party at a popular 5-star hotel called Kratos Hotel the previous day Wednesday (August 7th) with some friends.
The late Bayelsa state indigene at the party met a white girl he knew from school and started chatting with her. The white girl’s boyfriend, who was also at the party, got jealous and confronted Stanley, which led to serious argument between the two men. According to Stanley’s friends, the white dude allegedly threatened to kill Stanley for disrespecting him and was overhead saying nothing will happen because Stanley was in his country.
At 2am, some of the friends, Stanley came with to the party, were leaving and asked him to come along, but he refused. By 4am, the party had ended and the Nigerian boys who left at the close of the party didn’t see him and assumed he had gone home.
By 3pm on Thursday (August 8th), management of Kratos Hotel called the police informing them of seeing a body floating by the shore of their private beach. It was Stanley.
Cyprus police have declared it a suicide case without autopsy. They are claiming he committed suicide by drowning himself. His brother who went to identify Stanley’s body said he saw blood stain from his ear, mouth and nose.
The brother insists it’s not suicide because Stanley had no reason to commit suicide and wants the guy who threatened him at the party that night investigated. Also, the hotel refused to provide CCTV tapes of that particular day. During the day, the 5star hotel has workers, life guards and security guards, who have all denied either seeing Stanley come in or go out of the premises.
