A 62-years-old man, Moshood Lasisi, has hung himself in his room at Ayede Ogbese community in the Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State.
It was learnt that the deceased, who was on crutches, was found dead in his room after his wife and children returned from the farm.
The reason behind the 62-year-old man’s suicide could not be ascertained, as he did not leave a note.
A source in the community who confirmed to newsmen about the incident said the dead man’s body was discovered by his wife, Victoria in their room.
The source said, the wife came back from the farm and knocked on the door several times, but the husband did not open the door. She then peeped through the window and saw his body dangling from the rope; he used to tie himself to the roof of the room.
“The incident threw the community into mourning; everybody is wondering why the man took his life. Though he had a dislocation and was on crutches, his wife and children took good care of him”.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation was ongoing
Funmilayo added that there was no suspicion of foul play in the suicide.
“It was the wife of the deceased that reported the matter at the police station.” She revealed.
