A Director with the Lagos State Civil Service has committed suicide in very mysterious circumstances.
A Director in the Lagos State Ministry of Youths, Oludare Buraimoh, has committed suicide by hanging himself in his house located at Unity Estate, Phase II, Gbonagun, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
News Agency of Nigeria [NAN] reports that Buraimoh killed himself on Monday, September 11, 2017, after attending to his sick son, Dotun.
The son who spoke to NAN on the strange incident said the incident happened around 4 pm after his father gave him some malaria drugs and retired to his bedroom.
“We were both at home; he came to give me a drug and left me. I thought he was going to retire to his room but when I did not hear his voice, I called him, but no response came.
I, thereafter, went to his room only to find him hanging from the ceiling with a traditional Aso Oke tied to his neck and a stool with which he committed the suicide.
I then alerted the neighbours, who in turn, told me to alert the police, which I did,” Dotun narrated.
The deceased's wife who said she is yet to come to terms with the action of her husband, said she could not fathom any reason for him to commit suicide as he had not told her about any problem he had either at work or with someone.
“I don’t know what came over him, it is inexplicable. We have been surviving through the thick and thin and now that we ought to sit down and enjoy after all the years of toiling, he decided to take his life.
He did not show any sign of depression at the time he committed suicide. He was in high spirit; what led him to this remained a riddle.”
The incident was reported at the Obantoko Police Station where the officer in charge confirmed the suicide of Buraimoh.
The OC of the station, DSP Rasheed Olaleye, confirmed the incident but declined to give further comments, while adding that the body of the deceased has been deposited at the General Hospital mortuary after clearance from the police.
