The lifeless remains of a 48-year-old man identified as Segla Hunvu, was discovered dangling down a rope in the Mowo, Badagry area of Lagos State.
Hunvu, who stayed on Jogbenu Street, Torikovi Town, Mowo, hanged himself last Thursday due to what many presumed was frustration.
Speaking about the sad incident, a relative of the deceased who preferred anonymity said Hunvu had handed over his family to his eldest son, urging him to take good care of his younger ones.
Little did they know it was his own way of saying a final goodbye until his body was found lifeless in his home.
The relative said: “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. It is suspected that he was frustrated.”
The incident was reported at the Magboro police station and some officers were deployed to the scene where they took photographs of the deceased for investigations before they deposited his corpse in a morgue.
According to a police source:“The children tried reaching him on the telephone, but calls made to him did not connect.
“It was after some days that his body was found in the room.”
When contacted, the state police spokesperson, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, and said the members of the deceased’s family have requested the corpse for final burial rites.
