Man commits suicide in Lagos over alleged family problems


A middle-aged man, Friday, committed suicide in Satellite Town, Oriade Local Council Development Authority, Lagos over what sources described as family problems.

The Delta State indigene, who was simply identified as Awore was found dead in his office located at No 393 Old Ojo road, Satellite town, Lagos by his secretary upon reporting for work yesterday morning.

A visit by Saturday Vanguard to the scene revealed that the deceased processed admission for students, who intend to study in Ghana.

It was learnt that the secretary alerted neighbours, who in turn alerted the police and the deceased family. The incident attracted human and vehicular traffic at the scene.

Those, who spoke to Saturday Vanguard on condition of anonymity, said they suspected that the deceased’s action might have been influenced by repeated quarrels he had with his wife and children.

It was further learnt that the deceased who resided at Shell Estate in Satellite Town, was always sleeping at his office where he died as a result of the pressure he faced at home.

The corpse was later taken away by Police from Agboju Police Station.
