Emekeme Joseph, popularly known as Semikolo, the founder of Covenant Suites, a hotel chain based in Delta state is dead.

Those familiar with the development said the man who is a deacon in Winner’s Chapel fell gravely ill after his sons assaulted him.

It is alleged that the sons who graduated from Covenant University caught their father with a side chic and demanded a million naira bribe so not to inform their mum, who was holidaying in the United States then.

It is said that the father called their bluff, and true to their threat, they reported the affair to their mother, who was incensed.

The next day the father stopped by the Coca-Cola depot of the wife, and when the sons saw him, they hounded him out of the place.

According to insiders, he angrily went home and seized the keys to the sons’ cars, which drew their ire, and they descended on him with blows and kicks. He called the police, and the boys broke the head of one of the police officers.

The boys were arrested, and the father was rushed to the hospital. The father’s condition deteriorated quickly, and he was referred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, where he fought for his life.

It was gathered that the wife quickly flew back to the country and facilitated the release of the sons from police custody and strangely discharged the husband against the doctor’s advice from UBTH, where he was in a coma, and took him home where he died.
