However, in an interview with journalists at the court, it was revealed that Mr. Francis was only trying to conceal his guilt by harrassing the persons whom his daughter duped.
One of the accused persons who called Omoruyi to complain said upon the receipt of the call that late Lilian was owing him, the father threatened to disown her and reduce her to a mere staff at one of his small-size hotel and deal with her mercilessly. He said all these may have been the reason for the daughter to have taken her life, imagining that the only place she could have gotten some support had denied her.
