A man, simply identified as Tunde by neighbours, reportedly hanged himself at Aboru, in Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos, in the early hours of Sunday, following a quarrel with his wife.
The deceased’s wife, who was said to have abandoned her matrimonial home, following one of those disagreements with the deceased, as of press time, was not available for comments.
The lifeless body of the deceased, who lived on Tokyo Street, Edun, in Aboru, was said to have been discovered by neighbours in the early hours of Sunday, in an uncompleted building on Aluko street, in the same area.
While the deceased’s body had been removed when Lagos Metro visited the area, some of the residents, who spoke with Lagos Metro, stated that the deceased had been having a running battle with his wife in the past few weeks, a development that eventually led to the woman packing out of her matrimonial home.
“The guy is a commercial motorcyclist in this area, but for the past few weeks, he had been having a running battle with his wife, a development that led to the wife leaving the house for him.
“This could be one of the reasons the deceased decided to call it quit,” said a resident, who did not want his name in print.
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson for Lagos State police command, Dolapo Badmos, stated that the command was working on the probability of the deceased strangled to death and hanged by unknown assailants.
She, however, assured that the command would do everything within its power to unravel the mystery surrounding the incident.
