Sources said that his lifeless body was found in his neighbour’s apartment on Wednesday, August 2, 2023 after he returned from work at about 4am at the Jos Unversity Teaching Hospital (JUTH).
Oh, this is sad and agonising: I anchored Dr Satmak’s wedding reception on 17th June 2023 at Rochas and was hopeful of a perfect union only to be called Dr Satmak’s dead body was found in their neighbor’s apartment on Wednesday after earlier returning from JUTH around 4am.
A family source said that the deceased’s corpse shows signs of poisoning, as well as signs of struggles on his hand.
The police are said to be already investigating the circumstances of the doctor’s death, especially how he got to his neighbour’s apartment at 4am, and why his neighbours did not report his presence and death until 4pm, that is, 12 hours after the incident.
The late Dr Satmak was inducted into the medical profession in February and got married to his beautiful wife, Dinah, in June 17, 2023.
