The incident, which happened at Orisan Street, Ajamgbadi, left residents in the area dumbstruck even as the police ruled out the death as suicide, having explored and exhausted all angles in the investigation. The deceased however, left no suicide notes.
According to reports, the deceased, an Auchi indigene from Edo State, had been sick and bed-ridden for a long time despite medical intervention.
Frustrated by the sickness and the expenses accrued on his practically non-existent finances, the deceased was said to have waited for his two children to go to bed before hanging himself.
However, one of his kids discovered the corpse at about 10am the next day and called in the neighbours who in turn reported the incident at Ilemba Hausa Police Division.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Spokesman, Mr. Joseph Jaiyeoba, a superintendent of police, said Omobumbe’s death was ruled as suicide after investigations and no foul play was discovered.
He said, “At about 10:30am on April 7, 2012, one Ahmed Omobumbe, was found hanging in his apartment at Orisan Street, Ajamgbadi.
“Although the deceased was not living with the wife, he nonetheless had two of his children with him in the residence and it was one of them that discovered the corpse.”
Jaiyeoba added that investigations revealed that Omobumbe was frustrated due to his illness.
He said, “Initially, when the corpse was taken to the mortuary, we did not rule out foul play but after investigation, his body was released to his family for burial.”
Jaiyeoba however urged members of the public to seek counselling and help from professionals or family members as against committing suicide.
