Tragedy struck in Ikorodu town, Lagos State, yesterday, Jan 1st after an Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) graduate of Architecture, Ogunsona Daniel Adekunle Adebambo, committed suicide by hanging himself in an uncompleted storey building.
The deceased, Adebambo’s body was found around 1 a.m. yesterday dangling from a rope tied to the hook of a fan in an uncompleted storey building at 1, Alice Ogunsona Street, Hilltop Estate, Eruwen, Ikorodu.
Adebambo was found by his younger brother after reading the suicide note he left in their sitting room.
He allegedly blamed his action on his girlfriend’s father who refused to allow him marry his daughter.
A friend of the deceased disclosed that Bambo, as he was fondly called, killed himself because his fiancee’s father, who is from Ondo State, said his daughter cannot marry him because he is an Ijebu man from Ogun State.
Many of the sympathisers who gathered at his residence found the excuse for his action difficult to believe.
Efforts to speak with his fiancee proved abortive as she refused to talk.
P.M.NEWS investigations revealed that Adebambo, 30, studied Architecture at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) and did his national service in Abia State.
A resident of the Hilltop Estate, Ibrahim Adeola, who said he participated in bringing down Adebambo’s body from the ceiling, recalled that he was dead and stiff when they brought him down.
“When the family raised an alarm and we came here, he was already foaming in his mouth and his hand was clenched in a fist. This signified that he struggled till he died,” he said.
The atmosphere at the residence of the deceased in Eruwen was gloomy as family members, friends and neighbours wore sombre look
