Residents of Bakoteh were last Saturday shocked by the death of a 44-year-old Nigerian national, who reportedly committed suicide in his house.

Sunday Enahoro was found dangling with his neck tied with a rope in his house, which resulted into his death.

A teacher by profession, Sunday was said to have complained of high blood pressure, which led to him having stroke. He was also said to have complained about his lack of a wife and children, and financial constraints prior to his death.

Narrating the incident to reporters, Ola Tunde Michael, a friend to the deceased, said he received a phone call from one of his friends, asking him about the whereabouts of the deceased. He said he told the caller that the deceased said he was going to Church to seek prayers from the pastors, and promised to come back.

“I then called the cell phone of the deceased, but his phone was switched off,” he said, adding that he then went to the house of the deceased, where he knocked the door several times, but there was no answer.

He then tried, and entered the house, where he saw him dangling.

Meanwhile, when contacted yesterday, the police public relations officer ASP Yerro Mballow confirmed the story.
