Man Commits Suicide In Abeokuta For Lack Of Money To Bury Father

The city of Abeokuta in Ogun State Nigeria was in Chaos this past
Saturday when a man in his 60s identified as Akanni Timothy killed
himself few hours to his father's burial.

He allegedly committed suicide for lack of money to give his late
father a befitting burial.

The lifeless body of the father of eight, fondly called 'Marshal', was
found dangling on an orange tree close to the venue of the funeral in
the neighborhood at Ojugunuko, Oke-Ijemo area of Abeokuta.

It was learnt that the body was found by passers-by and raised the
alarm which attracted residents.

When the news of his death filtered into the venue, many of the guests
who were reported to have settled down for the party hurriedly left.

Some relations were said to have attributed the incident to the
financial challenges facing the late Akanni . However, some other
people described the ugly incident as spiritually motivated. One of
the siblings of the deceased, who simply identified himself as Mutiu,
said his late brother was in dire need of money to give their late
father a befitting burial.

He said, "I told Baba Sadiat (the deceased) to join me in my tent if
he knew he didn't have the means to entertain his guests. I did not
know he will kill himself". According to him, the family received
permission from the police at Ijemo who visited the scene of the
incident before they removed the body of the deceased.
