A banker who has been identified to be working for New Generation Bank in Lagos was reported to have committed suicide by hanging himself to the ceiling fan.
The Banker, Kelvin Rhima lives at Modinatu Street in Ogba area of Lagos State, and according to sources, his neighbor noticed the absent of Kelvin on Tuesday, getting towards the night, they decided to check up on him in his apartment, but his door was locked but on looking through his window, they saw his body dangling from a ceiling fan.
According to one of his neighbor, Barry Olarenwaju, he said;
“Kelvin was a calm person so we didn’t notice on time. When we didn’t see him outside on Tuesday morning, we felt that was his lifestyle, that he was sleeping inside, but when it was an evening we got worried because there was no padlock at his entrance to indicate that he had gone out.
“When we tried to open the door, it was locked from inside that was when we began to bang on the door. By the time we went to the window, we saw him dangling and his tongue sticking out. From the look of things it was obvious that it was on Monday he died because the body had begun to bloat”.
Another neighbor explained that;
“Ironically, when the police came, they wanted to detain all the tenants we had to pay N2,000 each so that we won’t be implicated in a matter we don’t know anything about. After which they still abandoned the corpse with the excuse that the mortuary was filled up. They only took pictures.”
“It was gathered that policemen from Pen Cinema saw the suicide note that he addressed to his father and his girlfriend.”
