A young man has committed suicide inside an uncompleted building in the Ijaiye, area of Lagos State.

The corpse of the man was seen dangling on Wednesday.

His identity and motive are yet to be unraveled by the police who have received an increase in alleged suicide cases across the country.

The development is causing panic among residents of the area who reported the incident to state authorities.

It is unlawful for anyone to commit suicide within Lagos state but cases of people jumping off bridges and walking into vehicles have attained disturbing number since 2016.
