The Lagos State Ministry of Youth Director, Mr Oludare Buraimoh was found dangling lifelessly from his apartment ceiling in Ogun State on Monday
Sources report that Mr Oludare, Lagos State Ministry Of Youth Director took his life after having a brief discussion with his son, said to be ill. When the news of his death went round, sympathizers thronged into his residence at Unity Estate, Phase II, Gbonagun, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
At the time of collating this report, attempts to speak with the Lagos State Government for their comments on the issue proved abortive.
According to Dotun, his son the incident occurred around 4 PM that fateful day:
We were both at home. He came to give me some drugs and left. I thought he was going to retire to his room. But when I did not hear his voice, I called him. There was no response. I, thereafter, went to his room only to find him hanging from the ceiling on a traditional Aso Oke tied round his neck. I then alerted the neighbours, who, in turn, told me to alert the Police, which I did.
His widow, said:
I don’t know what came over him; it is inexplicable. We have been surviving through thick and thin and now that we ought to sit down and enjoy, after all the years of toiling, he decided to take his own life. “He did not show any sign of depression at the time he committed suicide. He was in high spirits; what led him to this remains a riddle.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Rasheed Olaleye of the Obantoko Police Station confirmed the incident, but declined to give further comments, saying the Divisional Police Officer was in the best position to respond to all inquiries concerning the case.
