He was married for only about seven months. He had driven close to Elelenwo Police Station when one Joseph Udoh scratched his car.

“My brother parked his and went to Udoh to show him what he had done to his car. But Udoh hit my brother with his own car and he (brother) fell across the median (road demarcation). He (Paschal Nnorom) broke his spinal cord and died instantly.”an To Death For Killing Banker
