A security man at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, Fisayo Oyeniyi, has hanged himself after sending suicide text to his mother, wife and children.
According to TheNation, Oyeniyi, who was one of the armed guards in the security department of the institution, left his working place for his house around Kanmi bus stop, at Ifewara road, Ile-Ife to commit suicide.
He had sent text messages to his mother, wife and his two children informing them that he was not interested in living again.
A source who simply identified herself as Tolani told the newspaper, “the incident happened around noon. I saw people rushing to his apartment to get to see for themselves to be sure of what Mr. Oyeniyi has done to himself.
“We saw where he hung himself, dangling on the rope inside. He has been buried. This is so sad,” she said.
The public relation officer of OAU, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju, confirmed the incident, adding that investigation was underway.
