Sam David's body was discovered hanging by his aunt, Victoria Mombia. Circumstances surrounding the child's death remain unknown up to press time, but the boy's aunt, Mrs. Victoria Mombia, told reporters, "Sam came from selling soap that evening and I sent him to buy 'small small' things so we can cook 'dry rice' to eat," she said adding " After buying the things, I told him to go and take his bath but he didn't agree and he passed and went to our neighbor's house.
After spending some time there, he came back home and went to his room."
" When the girl got through cooking the rice, she called Sam for his own food, but he did not answer ;so I told her to keep his food and we ate ours, ", she informed Journalists.
She said, after eating, she (Victoria) fetched water for the house and after that she thought of checking on Sam to ensure that he takes bath and eats after spending the day selling.
It was at this time, according to her, that she and her little daughter went into Sam's room to wake him up, but saw him dead with a rope believed to be the rope they used to hang the kittens in his room hanging on his neck.
"As soon I entered his room, I flashed the light and saw him squatting dead with a rope hanging on his neck, I ran out crying and told the community people to take me to the police station", said Victoria.
Speaking further, Victoria informed reporters that she brought the late Sam to stay with her in November last year after his father (her brother) died and was planning to have him enrolled in a community school around where they live.
