A man who could no longer cope with the situation in the country has committed suicide after telling his teenage son to take care of his siblings.
Punch reports that Hunvu who lived on Jogbenu Street, Torikovi Town in the area, was found dangling with a rope around his neck after he had earlier told his eldest son to take care of himself and younger ones as he was going on a very long journey.
A relation of the deceased, said he must have had the idea of killing himself as he went around visiting relatives prior to committing suicide.
“Hunvu came to the Ajegunle, Apapa area, on Monday to see his younger brother, Michael Hunvu. We did not know he came to bid us farewell. He had earlier told his eldest son, who is a teenager, to take good care of himself and his younger ones.
He did not come out clearly to say he wanted to kill himself. Nobody knew the reason he killed himself. We suspect that he was frustrated.”
A police source at the Morogbo Police Division where the case was reported said that after Hunvu left the Ajegunle area, he entered his house when his children were not around and hanged himself in a room in the house.
The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Dolapo Badmos, has confirmed the incident, adding that the family members had requested the corpse for burial.
