Civil Servant Commits Suicide As He Hangs Self On The Railing Of Ekiti Sate Secretariat (Photos)

There was panic at Ekiti State Civil Service Secretariat after a civil servant hanged himself within the Secretariat in an apparent suicide.

A 49-year-old civil servant identified as Abolarinwa Olaoye, who works at the Ekiti State Civil Service, was on Tuesday evening, found hanging on a suicide rope within the state Secretariat in Ado Ekiti, the state capital.

According to reports, the body of the father-of-five, who was a night guard at the Ekiti State Scholarship Board, was found hanging with a clothing material to the railing of a building at the Ministry of Education where he had reported for duty around 6pm Tuesday.

Civil servants clustered around the spot of the incident and lamented the horrible twist of event for the man they described as jovial and amiable while alive.

While speaking to a correspondent, the deceased’s sister-in-law, Mrs Elizabeth Babalola, said Olaoye, a native of Igogo Ekiti, Moba Local Government area of the state, came to her around 4.30pm on Tuesday and lamented the acute financial problems he had been encountering of recent.

She said: “He came to me around 4.30pm on Tuesday and started lamenting that his house rent was due and that he could not pay due to irregular salary payment. He said he was also indebted to the government through housing and car loans he obtained.

“He also complained about his inability to meet other financial commitments to his wife’s family. He told me he could go ahead and do something nasty. He told me clearly that he was tired of life.

“I tried to persuade him not to resort to anything nasty. I told him life is full of ups and downs and that he should just endure, but I never knew he would end this way.”

The Executive Secretary of the Ekiti State Scholarship Board, Ayo Ajimat, confirmed that the deceased was a member of staff of the board before his demise.

“Yes, he was our staff. He was a very prayerful, jovial and amiable person. I don’t understand what led to this. I don’t know the kind of problem he had that could lead to this,” he said.

As at the time of filing this report, TORI News could not ascertain if the body of the man which was hanging on his suicide rope, has been evacuated, as some policemen from the police station located at the old Iyin road with jurisdiction over the area where the incident happened, came to the scene.
