A driver and father of four children has allegedly hanged himself in his rented apartment at New Town, Oke-Aro Titun on Idanre Road, Akure, Ondo State capital.
The deceased, identified as Dayo, reportedly committed suicide out of frustration and inability to fend for his family.
Reports said Dayo was having problems with owners of vehicles he was driving for commercial purposes and he was said to have been sacked by two of his employers within three weeks over some issues relating to daily remittance.
It was gathered that the owner of a bus sent him packing while the owner of a taxi asked him to leave a week after. His inability to secure another driving job to take care of his family members reportedly pushed him to commit suicide.
A police source said that some neighbours, who discovered he was not seen, raised the alarm after they saw his lifeless body. He was said to be living apart from his wife and children. The door of his apartment was said to have been forced open only to discover his dangling body.
The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Wole Ogodo, confirmed the incident. According to Ogodo, detectives had visited the scene and taken photographs of the deceased.
He pointed out that the deceased left a note instructing his wife and children not to arrest anybody over his death. The PPRO added that the deceased noted that there was no foul play in his death as he willingly took his life out of frustration. He said the body had been deposited in the morgue of the State Specialist Hospital.
