CONFUSION AS MAN COMMITS SUICIDE IN LAGOS
In the early hours of Saturday, An unidentified middle-aged man was found hanging from a tree on Catholic Mission Road, opposite the Court of Appeal in Lagos Island.
The man was putting on an Ankara native attire when he was found hanging on a rope which looked like a braided long scarf, tied to a tree.
According to reports from News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Policemen at the scene of the incident confirmed the happening but told NAN that they were not allowed to comment on the issue yet until a proper investigation was carried out.
They made it clear that they would not loosen the noose around the man’s neck or search his pockets for identification purposes until doctors arrived to confirm him officially d**d.
There was confusion at the scene as one Mr. Ige Adedoja, a resident of the area, who was at the scene of the incident, said that traditional rites needed to be performed before anyone could loosen the noose from the man’s neck.
He said that he met many people at the scene and that no-one but doctors could confirm the actual time of death.
The man was still hanging from the tree as at 9 am, when this report was filed.
