There was pandemonium at Idi Oro, Ona Ara Local Government Area of Oyo State, on Saturday when a 27-year-old man, Kasim Adeniran, committed suicide.
The deceased, who was the ‘Oluwo Ogboni’ of Egbeda, Ibadan, was found hanging on the ceiling of his father’s house.
Residents of the area said the father of four was last seen on Friday night.
His first child, Anifa, 10, broke the news of her father’s death to the residents. She reportedly told the neighbours that she saw her father with a rope the previous night.
She added that her father had on Friday night given his telephone and a suicide note to her.
According to Anifa, her father told her that he planned to do something early the next morning.
It was learnt that Kasim and his first wife, Modinat, had a fight recently. She was said to have left the house for some weeks but later returned.
The note which he left with his daughter was taken away by the police from Akanran Police Station.
Our correspondent learnt that the suicide note indicated that the deceased had financial and marital challenges.
The policemen were prevented from taking Kasim’s corpse awayas some family members said some rituals must be performed on it.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, Oyo State Command, Mr. Ayodele Lanade, said he did not have any information on the matter.
