A video showing Izuchukwu Madubueze, 23, reading a suicide note before shooting himself dead has been shared online.

Izu, from Anambra state, committed suicide in the US on Thursday, July 16, after a Twitter user accused him of harassing a woman.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida, United States, the Nigerian entrepreneur died by self-inflicted gunshot wound.

“Izuchukwu Madubueze was the victim of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound on July 16, 2020. The case is open and active and no further information will be provided at this time,” said Deputy Travis Sibley, a spokesman for the office.

Before taking his life, Izu recorded himself reading his suicide note. The video has now been shared online.

In the video, he addressed the harassment allegation, declared his love for his family, and said some words to his accuser.

“I feel like it’ll be awesome to say some last words before I leave,” Izu began in the video.

He added: “In the last couple of weeks, I have seen the tweets. I have heard from several people, I’ve also seen some people who I expected a lot more from subtweeting me and I wasn’t ever given a fair chance to clear my name or explain my side of the story or verify whether any of the allegations against me were true or not.

“To my family, first of all, I apologize for bringing disgrace to your name. I love you all unconditionally from the bottom of my heart.”

“To my mum, I pray you stay strong, ” he said with a shaky voice.

“To my dad, you always said God will never give me a load that’s too heavy to carry but last two years have been the heaviest moments of my life… actually last three years have been the heaviest moments of my life.

“To my little bro, Ekene, I love you man. I wish we hadn’t grown super distant.

“To my sister, I love you so much sis. You have great things in store for you. You’re gonna be a very very great person.”

He then addressed his accusers, saying: “To Ify and Duby I wronged and who I… who said I groped them, which hurts a lot.

“To girls who posted the list, thank you for posting the list.”

Izu was referring to the list posted on Twitter where a number of men were named as people accused of sexual assault, harassment, or rape. Izu’s name was listed and he was accused of harassment.

The list was posted by a user named Nani.

Izu continued: “I mean, like I told you Nani, I can’t shoot the messenger. but your attitude not to work towards clearing up accusations was piss-poor. You denied me the opportunity to clear my name and you refused to tell me what exactly I did that was harassment, even after I provided proof that I didn’t harass this person….”

After recording the suicide note, Izu also scheduled a short note that was posted on Twitter on July 17, one day after his death.

The tweet reads: “Oh, and if you’re reading this, I’m dead. Lol.”

When asked why he is being thorough in an industry people don’t really appreciate he said “everyone project there non existent, advanced version on Instagram, fake there level of intellect on twitter, but WhatsApp is where you really know people because it’s like there safe and private space, where no one is really watching, so people’s opinion about a brand or service in the space tends to be from an honest point of view not clout for retweets or likes”
