OAU guard sends message of frustration, hangs self

A guard in the security department of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State, Fisayo Oyeniyi, has reportedly committed suicide.

It was learnt that the deceased hanged himself in his house located along Ifewara Road, Ile-Ife.

His dangling body was later discovered by other tenants in the house.

Sources in his department said he did not show any sign of depression.

It was, however, learnt that the deceased sent out messages to his immediate family members a few hours before he committed suicide, saying he was fed up with life.

A spokesperson for the varsity, Abiodun Olanrewaju, confirmed the incident.

Olanrewaju said the university mourned the deceased, whom he said worked as a casual worker in the security department of the school.

He said, “From what we learnt, he sent messages to his mother and wife, together with the children, complaining of lack of interest in living.

“He left the office and did not allow anybody to suspect him. Almost four hours after he sent the texts, he committed suicide. They just found his body dangling in his room. He was not living with his wife and children. His family lives with his mother.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola, said the matter was not reported to the police.
