There was confusion in Sango area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital on Saturday when a yet-to-be identified middle-aged man climbed mast of one of the banks in the ancient city to kill himself.

The man, who was said to be a mentally unstable, DAILY POST gathered on Sunday jumped to his death from Wema Bank’s network mast in the Sango area of Ibadan to commit suicide.

Though there are reports that the deceased was mentally stable, but no one is yet to ascertain what prompted him to commit suicide by killing himself in that manner.

Public Relations Officer (PRO), of the State police command, Mr. Olugbenga Fadeyi, while confirming the incident, said that the man, who stripped himself naked before climbing the mast, entered the bank through its small gate.

He, however, informed that the corpse has been deposited at the morgue of the Adeoyo Hospital in Ibadan.

Fadeyi further stated that efforts were ongoing to know the true identity of the deceased.

He said, “The naked man came to the bank’s branch in Sango and entered the building through its small gate.

“It was after he gained entrance into the bank’s premises that he climbed the bank’s mast before the security personnel became aware of his action.

“He had already climbed the mast to its peak, before they alerted the police, but before anything could be done, though the police responded immediately, the victim had jumped down to the roof of the bank.

“The District Police Officer (DPO) and Fire Service personnel, who arrived the scene of the incident, swung into action to save the man’s life, but the impact was so much that he crashed through the roof and fell inside the bank. An official of the bank was called in to open the premises.

“By the time the bank’s door was opened, the man was already bleeding through the mouth and was rushed to the University College Hospital where he was confirmed dead.”

IPOB attack: Lawan, Ngige, others visit Ekweremadu

Published

on

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, on Monday night, visited former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, at his residence in Abuja.

On his entourage was former Minister of Labour, Chris Ngige, among others.

The visit was in solidarity following the attack on the Enugu-born politicians by members of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) in Nuremberg, Germany at the weekend.

After his arrival in Abuja, Ekweremadu advised Nigerians, including Igbo leaders, to feel free to travel to any part of the world.

“I think they were just people, who were misdirected and misguided. I had the feeling they were under the influence of alcohol. They don’t represent the feelings of our people. There is nothing to worry about.

“The organisers, the Igbo in Germany, have written a letter apologising for what happened. Everybody is free to go anywhere because those ones don’t represent the behaviour of Nigerians abroad.

“For me, I have moved on. The government and authorities of Germany are free to do whatever they wish about it”, he said.

On IPOB threats to attack more Igbo leaders, especially the governors of the South East, Ekweremadu said: “Let me just say that the leaders he (Kanu) was mentioning were responsible for getting him out of jail in the first place.

“What we will do in this circumstance is to leave him to his conscience, the verdict of history, and possibly the repercussions of ingratitude. But I hope he won’t go to the extent of attacking any of the South East leaders anywhere”.
