September 7, 2016 – Picture: American Businessman Charles Carlson Hangs Himself…Oil Millionaire Commits Suicide In Lekki Lagos Hotel Room After Losing Investment 

The owner of Brava Group of company, an Oil and energy firm which started operation in Nigeria back in 2012 has taken his own life.

The deceased identified as Charles Carlson,57, reportedly took his own life on Tuesday hours after he lodged into an hotel in Lekki Phase 1.

Mr Carlson reportedly used a rope to tie himself to the ceiling.

A reliable business partner told police yesterday that Mr Carlson who lost his investment in oil business due to the ongoing economic recession has been battling severe depression since mid August.

After he refused to check out of his hotel room yesterday morning, the hotel management called his cell phone and also paged him using the intercom.

They were forced to call his business partner before forcing his door open.

His body was found dangling from the roof

Police detectives from Maroko Station were called to the scene before his body was moved to the mortuary.

The case has been transferred to the Homicide Department of SCID in Yaba Lagos.

    SUICIDE IS hyped these days. First, it was an Akwa Ibom man in Itu, then an Igbo man’s failed attempt in Lagos, followed by a Bayelsa man. And I believe there could be numerous other cases which go unreported.

    NOW, OYIBO DON join. I hope this one did not equally blame Buhari, or did he? Suicide is NEVER the answer to any problem in life. It requires bravery to take your own life. But deep down the core of that bravery is flaming cowardice.

    Folks can you now agree with me that money cannot solve all our problem in this life. The difference between when you have money versus when you don’t is the ability to get the money at the right time you needed it and to some others, they have to struggle a little bit to get it. However, having all the money that is full of 2 storey building doesn’t make you the happiest person in life. At times these rich folks have enormous problem to the extent that they are ready to trade all their monies to secure their happiness.

    There are some people who have enough money to buy entire Country but they must visit their Doctor daily to get their insulin injection in order to survive and to be able to go by their daily activities. Any attempt for them to miss a daily dose of their injection, is a disaster for them. Where as an Okada man who is struggling to make #1500 daily full of energy with no major ailment will be blaming God for not placing him in the position of millionaire. We don’t have to have everything in this life. We just need to make use of what we have and we will be okay. Our problem is we always like to copy what others do wrongly instead of being contented with what we have. We always love complaining. Anyway that is human.

    I don’t know what might have led to suicide act committed by this man but I’m sure it is not because he was loosing some money in his investment because he is capable to move out his investment to other Countries if that was the case but I believe there are other underlying problems which forced this man to take his life. Only God’s know but the question is, would you take your life even if you have one quarter of this guy fortune?
