Cousin Of Mobile Police Officer, Mopol Posted To Borno State Commits Suicide At Ikeja Lagos Police Barracks Because Of Poverty, Leaves Heartbreaking Suicide Note

A man took his own life in Ikeja Lagos this past weekend.

The 27-year-old man allegedly hanged himself on the ceiling fan in the apartment he was occupying at the Ikeja Lagos Police Barracks.

According to investigation, the deceased was a brother to a mobile policeman posted to Operation Lafiya Dole in Borno state.

The policeman was said to have left his house for him in order to help him financially.

A source said the deceased in his suicide note wrote that he was tired of suffering.

Here is what the source said:

“He wrote that he was tired of this life. He was tired of suffering and could not go on. He begged his parents and relations to forgive him. He said he knew the pains they would go through, but he just had to go.

“I don’t know his name, but I know that he was living in the apartment of a mobile policeman. He was a cousin to the policeman.

“Maybe, it is hardship that made him to commit suicide. It is really sad. Policemen from the division evacuated his body”.

    That’s a really bad news. This is what you see everyday when the government is not giving back to the society in a positive way.

    Sad, things are difficult in Nigeria but suicide is never the answer, now that you have abandoned this earth in this way,you are going to face the torture of your soul/spirit to eternity.

    Sad, poor soul. That which you have done isn’t the solution, wherever you are going too, what if the hardship can’t be compare with this one, Will you run back here? That decision you took is just out of it. Rest wherever you belong!!
