Nigerians woke up to news about the death of Michael Asiwaju founder of Asiwaju Royal Furniture in Ojo, Lagos popularly known as Mike Cash, who commited suicide following several rape allegations against him on social media.
Late Asiwaju was said to have taken a poisonous substance suspected to be Sniper and was met lifeless in his hotel room around 12am on January 13, 2019 shortly after he posted a suicide note on Twitter.
See all the reactions to his death below…
Asiwaju's story has many lessons for everyone. Sadly, suicide is never a good thing… and Sniper is beginning to kill more humans than pests, is there nothing that can be done about it?

Call me heartless or whatever but if that asiwaju fellow is truly dead.
I couldnt possibly care less. Twitter did not kill him. His actions led him to his own death

Twitter is calm now over the death of Asiwaju until the same hypocrites who cursed him, laughed at him, asked for his possessions before he dies and even wrote him a suicide note will wake up and start tweeting rip and sad emojis..Twitter is a murder zone. Keep your issues away

Don't call people out for rape on social media we have courts for that. Get your lawyer. It's all bants till you are the victim or someone close.
RIP Asiwaju, may God be with your child.@thatgoddess____ if you lied about that issue, earth will judge you.

Asiwaju is dead. At least according to Punch newspapers.
I personally thought it was another publicity stunt.
But before we all go into faux sympathy and fake caring mode, let’s remember we were the same people who asked him to drop his iPhone charger and kill himself after.

Oh wow. Asiwaju killed himself? I have no words right now. May he find rest and everyone who he has hurt forgive him 🙏

Am not saying Asiwaju is guilty. I don't even know.
But if he did it and everyone is saying he is innocent cos he committed suicide, then Judas Iscariot is innocent of betraying Jesus
