A man, Mr Jimoh Hassan, early on Wednesday hanged himself in a room in his house in Oke-Ayepe area of Osogbo, family members said.
Hassan, a transporter, allegedly committed the action about 5a.m. when he was believed to have gone to the mosque to pray.
Hassan’s wife, Rashidat, who told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that she never suspected her husband could carry out such action.
She said everyone was surprised by her husband’s action, especially as he related well with people, including friends, on Tuesday.
Also, the daughter of the deceased, Mrs Adijat Abdulkareem, told NAN that the last time that she saw her father was on Thursday when he complained of a minor ailment for which she gave him money to get treatment.
She expressed shock over the incident and wondered what could have led him to take the action.
‘’Sincerely, I am short of words, I am devastated, I cannot pinpoint what could have led him to killing himself; he did not have any serious issue bothering him to the best of my knowledge.
‘’He has just been nominated as the head of this community for which we are preparing for the conferment of the chieftaincy title as the baale (leader) of this community, it is really pathetic,’’ she resorted. (NAN)
