60 YRS OLD MAN COMMITS SUICIDE OVER LACK OF MONEY FOR FATHER’S BURIAL IN OGUN

A 60 year-old man identified as Akanni Timothy, committed suicide few hours to the commencement of his father’s funeral. Relations blamed his financial incapacitation to give the late father a befitting burial for the suicide.

The lifeless body of the father of eight, fondly called ‘Marshal’ was found dangling on an orange tree close to the venue of the funeral in the neighborhood at Ojugunuko, Oke-Ijemo area of Abeokuta.

It was gathered that the body was found by passers-by who raised the alarm which attracted residents.

Some relations were said to have attributed the incident to the financial challenges facing the late Akanni . However, some other people described the ugly incident as spiritually motivated.  One of the siblings of the deceased, who simply identified himself as Mutiu, said his late brother was in dire need of money to give their late father a befitting burial.

He said, “I told Baba Sadiat (the deceased) to join me in my tent if he knew he didn’t have the means to entertain his guests. I did not know he will kill himself”.

According to him, the family received permission from the police at Ijemo who visited the scene of the incident before they removed the body of the deceased.  .

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, could not be reached on his mobile line for confirmation as at the time of this report.
