AS YOU READ THIS A 28YRS OLD MAN HAS COMMITTED SUICIDE IN MUSHIN LAGOS ON THE EVE OF HIS WEDDING.
Mr. Shakiru, popularly called Jarule, was found hanging from the ceiling of his home.
Relatives said the father of 2 was being expected in Osogbo, Osun State, on Saturday for the event but he sent a suicide message to his sister, Mariam, which reads: “I’m sorry. Forgive me.”
Mariam had reportedly insisted on his arriving early for the event on noticing his attitude of late. But when the message came in around 6:30pm, she did not read it immediately. When she did, she tried to reach some of his friends, but all to no avail. She then got their elder sister who lives near him to go and find out what was happening.
According to The Nation, the sister found his room locked from inside indicating he was at home.
But when he did not respond to her knocks, she called Mariam, who asked her to look through the window from where she found his lifeless body dangling from the ceiling.
Mariam said: “I called him several times to urge him to get to Osogbo on time but he told me he would arrive probably on Sunday or even Monday. I asked him what he meant by that when he knew the wedding was slated for Sunday. He quickly changed it and said he was on the way, that he would be there.
“I was expecting him till I got his message late at night. I called people close to his area but it didn’t go. Later I called my aunt to help me check him up. That was when she found out what happened. I had stopped calling him at a time because of his unresponsive attitude.”
The late Shakiru also left some notes in his jotter, bordering on love and his life trajectory. They included “I’m Done”, “If you are reading this, it’s too late.” He also wrote phrases such as “I love you” on the pictures of his two children.
