A 24 year-old Guinean national, Suleiman Sow, a Fulani, came to Liberia to learn the English language, according to relatives who spoke last Friday to the Daily Observer in New Kru Town.
Sow was still struggling to realize his dream, friends said.
But Thursday, Dec. 18 and about midnight, local residents say Sow was heard crying in his bedroom.
The following morning when neighbors when to his New Kru Town residence they him lying in a pool of blood.
Sow before his death was believed to be a cell phone repairer near the Duala Market, relatives say.
Sow’s problems began a month ago when he and an unidentified man engaged in a physical fight from which he (Sow) suffered a deep cut on his right arm, according to a family member.
“I always advised Sow not to fight anybody but he would not listen to me,” another family member, with tears in his eyes, told our correspondent.
Neighbors told reporters that what seemed an intense struggle apparently took place in the room the night Sow died.
“I heard him crying the whole night,” a neighbor said.
Sow’s body was identified by relatives, who waited for authorities to give them the go-ahead to begin the Islamic burial process on Friday morning.
Police have requested relatives of the deceased to visit the New Kru Town depot for further interrogation, although a police source say they don’t suspect any foul play.
The body last Saturday afternoon was claimed by an Ebola Response Team.
