LAGOS—Barely 48 hours after a police officer attached to Safer High Way Patrol committed suicide at the Nigerian Police Training School, Ikeja, Lagos, a yet-to-be identified man has hung himself on a mango tree in Amuwo Odofin area of the state.
The middle-aged man was found at about 7a.m. yesterday, dangling from the tree at a deserted plot of land in Uche Edemenu Street, Prayer Estate, Amuwo-Odofin, with his luggage beneath the tree.
When Vanguard visited the scene, social workers from State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit, SHEMU, and a police officer from Festac Divisional Headquarters were at the scene evacuating the corpse.
When contacted, spokesperson of Lagos State Police Command, Mr. Joe Offor, said he would get back to Vanguard, but had not done so at press time.
