A part-time student of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Oyo State, Timilehin Ayobami Ogundare has been found dead in his room at Ilupeju area, Baasala, Asero, Abeokuta, Ogun State in western Nigeria.
He was believed to have committed suicide by hanging himself. P.M.NEWS also gathered that the deceased was a computer operator with a firm, Blueprint Music Studio in Abeokuta, before his death.
I really don’t understand why this is happening. What on earth will make you take your life,no matter the situation. I blame the ASUU strike* forgive my insensitivity*! Life does not end here,now imagine where you’ll be going from here considering this act. I pray your soul rest in peace.
A family source who did not want his name in print disclosed that the deceased tried to kill himself last year but was stopped by some people.
The relation revealed that the deceased was arrested by some security guards and handed over to men of the state vigilance service when he attempted to jump into River Ogun. He was later released.
“The whole issue is still like a drama because I don’t know what could have made him decide to take his life. We have been looking for him since January 1. Later, we heard that he went to Lagos. He boarded a train from Lagos back to Abeokuta on Saturday and came down at Lafenwa. He trekked from the station through Enu Gada area to Ajitaadun down to Arakanga area with the aim of jumping into the river.
“He was arrested by the security men in the area when they saw him wandering with only his boxer pant on. They handed him over to the Vigilante men at Oke Ilewo for further investigation. We went there to collect him and we were told to come back with him yesterday. On getting to his room, we found out that he had hanged himself. He left a short note, apologising that he disappointed us,” the source narrated in tears.
