Frustrated OAU Official Commits Suicide
A member of staff of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, Mr Fisayo Oyeniyi, has taken his life.
The Public Relations Officer of the university, Mr Abiodun Olanrewaju, told Daily Trust that the deceased killed himself a few hours after telling people that he was tired of life.
Until his death, Oyeniyi worked in the armed squad of the security department of the university.
It was learnt that the deceased sent a text message to his aged mother, his wife and two daughters, in which he complained that he was depressed and no longer interested in living.
The PRO of the university said, “Oyeniyi left office and went to hang himself fours hours after sending text message to his mother, wife and children that he was tired of this life.”
“Unfortunately, he didn’t allowed his co-workers to know. He did not allow them to suspect anything. Four hours after he sent the text message, he committed suicide. He was found lifeless, dangling in his room.
“The university management sympathised with his mother, wife and two children. It was very sad,” Olanrewaju said.
