Although the man was unassuming , he had been feuding with his wife who sells soft drinks and grocery at the old toll gate in Ota.
Tijani’s only child, Wasiu, recalled how his father tricked him out of the house on that fateful day before taking his own life.
He went out the day before the incident and returned home the following morning.
By then my mother had gone out; he gave me money to go to a barber’s shop to cut my hair. By the time I returned home I met him dangling from the ceiling.
He didn’t share his problems with me and I wouldn’t know what could have led him to commit suicide. He lost his father several years ago but his aged mother is still alive. He hailed from Ago Ika, Abeokuta.
The incident was reported to the Alagbado Police Station and remains of his body taken away from the house.
