Man Commits Suicide At UCH Ibadan
Was he diagnosed with a disease too much to bear? Was he owing bills too much to pay? Was he mentally ill?
These and several other questions were all that eyewitnesses could battle with on Wednesday at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan.
In what looked like an obvious case of suicide, an unidentified man deliberately jumped off the sixth floor of the hospital.
The Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Deji Bobade, confirmed the incident, explaining that the man purposely went to the floor where the museum was under lock.
“As we all know, the JOHESU strike is on and no health worker was allowed to be at work.
“At around 9 am, people around the ground floor of the building said they just heard the thud sound of a heavy object.
“On getting to the place, the body of a man, probably in his late 50s or early 60s, was found on the ground.
“Doctors around certified him dead.
“We contacted the Police Public Relations Officer, Adekunle Ajisebutu, who ordered his men to deposit the body in our mortuary here.
“There was no means of identification found on him, but his footwear was a dunlop rubber slippers,” he said.
The police are yet to make a statement on the matter.
