A 46-year-old male banker attached to one of the United Bank For Africa (UBA) branches in Lagos state, Nigeria, has committed suicide for a reason yet to be known.
Mr. Ibeakanma, a father of one, was found lying lifeless in his room in Victoria Island, Lagos State.
It is gathered that the deceased identified as Onyechere Ibeakanma from Umuakam Afugiri in Umuahia north LGA, Abia state died after drinking a substance believed to be sniper.
Until his death on Friday 9th of August 2019, Mr. Ibeakanma was a Human relationship Manager at the UBA.
According to a family source, Ibeakanma left a suicide note for his wife who went shopping when he came back from work, intimating her of his intentions to end his life.
The suicide note reads;
The best, that’s what I used to call you. Finally this is the end of my journey here on earth. The evil I have been battling with has succeeded in quenching the flame
You married a wrong man. You’re a good woman and you deserve the best. You need to be happy. You need to soar. Please take care of our princess Chinenyenwa.
Tell her that I love her so much. Be peaceable with everyone though not gonna be easy. Tell my family not to harbour any resentment against you. You’re a blessing to us.
That’s the wish of a dying man. Don’t cry for me but pray for me. I love you and chinenye so much. Good Bye My beloved
The source who spoke Igbere TV on anonymity revealed he was shocked as to why the deceased who was discovered to have left as much 16 million naira in one of his accounts took his own life.
The source however told Igbere TV that Mr. Ibeakanma always exhibited some strange behaviours that no member of the family has taken serious notice of except until his death.
“In one of his Facebook post on July 24 at 4:48 PM: Ibeakanma wrote; THE LIGHT IS GRADUALLY DIMMING OUT………… but we never read any meaning to it,” the source said.
“But today, Onyechere is no more what more can we say than to ask God to forgive his sins and grant his soul eternal passage into his bosom,” he added.
