According to PUNCH, a source said Benjamin’s lifeless body was found dangling in an uncompleted building close to the house.

He said,

“Benjamin and his cousin, Ejiro, had for some years been living with a relative in the community. Recently, there was suspicion that the duo were in an incestuous relationship.

“Soon, the affair became public knowledge and it caused eyebrows to be raised with some people apportioning blame, which did not go down well with Benjamin.

“Benjamin, probably of his desire to avoid public condemnation and shame, decided to end it all by taking his life.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Kontongs Bello, who confirmed the incident said the deceased’s family had taken the corpse for burial.
