A man identified as Charles Omomo, of No 12, Obafemi Erija Borokini Road in Aga, Ikorodu residence, in Lagos, has hanged himself after killing his wife, Faith and their last born, Glorious.
As revealed by a neighbor, the incident which happened around 6:30 a.m, was caused by issues which Charles and Faith had been having in recent times.
“There was a time they were fighting and the husband was accusing his wife of infidelity– that the wife must tell him the real father of the son– if not, that nobody will be alive among them.
As you can see, the children and their parents were together at the time of the incident and nothing happened to the two older girls. The mother and son whose matter are in contention, were found dead and the father was also found to have committed suicide.”
The corpses have since been evacuated by officers of the Rapid Response Squad from Ikeja and Ikorodu Police Division.
The sad news of their death is coming few days after he Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, advised parents on what to do as Nigeria experiences an increasing rate of suicide.
In a tweet he shared, Atiku advised that close attention should be paid by parents for early signs of depression so as to prevent the situation from plunging into suicide.
‘The rate of suicide among our youth is worrisome. I believe that as parents and community, we need to pay close attention for early signs of depression among our young people, particularly in this depressing times. -AA ‘
