The residents of Aponmode area of Moniya in Ibadan, Oyo State, were, on Friday last week, thrown into shock, as a 15-year-old boy, Alamu Daniel committed suicide in his father’s house.

The teenager, a senior secondary school, SSS One student of Aponmode High School, Moniya, was said to have hung himself at about 11.00 a.m, after he left the school premises for one of the uncompleted rooms in his father’s house.

His teachers and colleagues were reportedly shocked by the incident, especially because the deceased was still in school that day and even played football with his mates shortly before he went home to commit suicide.

It was gathered that Daniel took an excuse from his colleagues, saying that he wanted to pick something from home which was not far from school.

The teenager reportedly hanged himself in the same clothes he wore while playing football, while his mates reportedly heard of the incident few minutes after he had left them.

When contacted, the state Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Administration, Mr Clement Adoda, confirmed the story, describing it as unfortunate.
