Femi, a popular 40-year old resident of Alhaji Aboki Street in Abaranje area of Ikotun has committed suicide because he’s still single at 40, Vanguard reports.
His lifeless body was discovered in an uncompleted building. Late Femi was said to have committed suicide out of frustration and his inability to get married at 40.
The incident occurred barely two months after he was evicted from his one -room apartment on 27, Alhaji Aboki Street.
Residents of the area said Femi had attempted to take his life twice in the past. Looks like he succeeded on the third trial.
A resident of the area, Josiah Madu, who said late Femi was a bricklayer, disclosed that Femi had complained severally that business was not forth-coming and that he desperately wanted to get married.
“He told some of us in March last year that every woman he approached for marriage complained about his financial status. At a point, he started keeping to himself.”
Police hinted that investigation into the cause of the death had begun.
