One of the local armed guards of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, named Fisayo Oyeniyi hanged himself at the weekend in his house at Kanmi bus stop, Ifewara Road, Ile-Ife.
The incident left the entire family of the deceased in shock as it remained unknown why he committed suicide.
Meanwhile, his co-workers who were also in a state of mourning over the departed, described him as a dedicated worker.
The circumstances that led to the incident were yet to be known.
But, close associates and other family members attributed it to the current economic hardship in the country.
Reacting to the shocking incident, the institution public relations officer, Mr Biodun Olanrewaju said, “From what we learnt, he sent a text message to his mother, wife and children, complaining of lack of interest in living again. He left office, and he did not allow anybody to suspect him because almost four hours after he sent the text, he committed suicide. They just found his body dangling in his room. That was exactly what happened”.
“And the university management sympathized with the family. He had a mother, wife and two children. The children and wife live with his mother.”We are social! follow us on:
