According to relations of the deceased, he had earlier revealed
he was going to the farm to fell some palm trees in order to enable him tap
palm wine to distill ‘akpetishie’, a local alcoholic beverage but delayed more
than the usual time he returns home.

Several hours after he failed to return, they suspected something was amiss and traced him to the farm where they spotted him trapped under a fallen palm tree dead in view of the fact that there was no one available to rescue him at the time of the incident.
