Renua Giwa-Amu is a 26 years old artist and model with a BFA in Animation & Interactive technology from the Savannah College of Art And Design (SCAD). A multi-talented Nigerian filmmaker, Renua pursued both Drawing & Storyboarding Minors, as she enjoys visual development, painting, and various types of illustration.
However, the news of her death surfaced in the Nigerian media space on December 28, with many newspapers citing an announcement from one of her relatives.
Although close relations confirmed her death, none provided the circumstances that led to her death or how she died.
“Circumstances of her death are still under investigation,” a statement credited to her lawyer-father, Obafemi Giwa-Amu, noted.
However, the police department in Georgia State said the investigation was still ongoing as Ms. Giwa-Amu was suspected to have committed suicide on December 26, 2020.
The Police said at 02: 25 p.m. on that day, one of its operatives, Officer Fernandez, was dispatched to a call of suicide threats in 34000 11th St. Union City, where the deceased lived.
