… police detain lover
A 53-year-old taxi driver, Sheik Abdul Sharif, called ‘Sheriff’, of Good Hope East Bank Essequibo went into a hotel in Parika on Friday evening but never made it out alive.
Reports are that the man went to the hotel with his 25 year-old lover and suffered a heart attack fueling speculations that he may have used a performance-enhancing drug.
When this newspaper visited the man’s home yesterday, his son Sheik Omar Sharif, told this newspaper that he received the news about 23:00hrs the night when a woman called him and said that he should rush down to the hotel because something was wrong with his father.
The visibly distraught young man said that when he reached there, the police had already removed the body.
The woman was detained by the police until her story that she had nothing to do with the man’s collapse could be verified.
This newspaper has also learnt that it has been a month now since the popular driver’s wife left the country for Canada.
The family has not been allowed to take possession of the body as they would have liked to do, given that Sharif is Muslim and would have been buried possibly the same day.
The family will be allowed to take possession of the body when the Post Mortem is concluded
