60 Year Old Man Committs Suicide In Ekiti State
The Ikole Community of Ekiti State is in a state of confusion as a 60-year, father of five, Mr. Daniel Sakpe, has hanged himself in the Omobayi area of Itapaji.
After being away for long his wife got worried, having expected him to rejoin her. She then called out severally but didn’t get an answer. That led her to raise the alarm and woke up one of her children, identified as Rebecca Sakpe, who went looking for her father.
Deborah, it was further gathered, found her father’s body hanging on a rope inside the house after flashing her touch light on the ceiling of the building.
Neighbors who expressed shock at the tragic development said the deceased was not moody; he did not give any indication that he would commit suicide either. “He was part of those who conducted the church services in high spirits on Sunday,” they said.
Confirming the mishap, Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer, (PPRO), Caleb Nwachukwu, said he was yet to be briefed about the development but promised to get back to the reporter once he confirmed the story.
Meanwhile, a police source told newsmen that officials from the Ikole police station had recovered his body and begun investigation into the development.
