An Ekiti LG Director of Finance (Ise/Orun Local Government) identified as Michael Kayode Bamisaye, has reportedly committed suicide at his residence behind Tinuola Maximum School, off Afao Road in Ado-Ekiti.
The Ekiti LG Director of Finance who jumped into the well in his compound, had reportedly drunk water mixed with cement before the suicide move. While the reason for the suicide is yet to be uncovered, however it was gathered that he had earlier attempted to kill himself before jumping into the well.
A source who spoke to newsmen said;
“The deceased woke up at about 4.00 am to assist his wife to do some house chores and even called some council workers he used to convey to Ise everyday to be ready to join him to their station. .
All of a sudden, he disappeared and went outside with the wife looking for him. Later she discovered that the well was opened and they saw the body floating. “
The wife and other people who joined her searching later saw the cement he had mixed with water which he might have taken before taking the plunge into the well. .
The men of the State Fire Service have come to remove the corpse which has since been deposited at the mortuary.”
This is coming few days after it was reported that Tolulope Kolawole, the first son of the late Permanent Secretary, Bureau of General Services, Office of the Governor of Osun State, Mrs Olufunke Kolawole, allegedly committed suicide.
It was gathered that the young man ended his life because he could no longer make ends meet. Residents of the Halleluya Estate in Osogbo, where he lived, told our correspondent on Sunday that the news went round the area on Thursday that 32-year-old Tolulope hung himself.
His mother, Olufunke Kolawole, was abducted on her way to Abuja on an official assignment and eventually killed in Kogi State last year.
