Suicidal student finally succeeds in killing himself. Hangs self in his room

Part-time student of The Polytechnic, Ibadan, Timilehin Ayobami Ogundare tried to kill himself on Sat January 4th by jumping into River Ogun but was stopped and saved by some security guards who handed him over to men of the vigilante service. Timi was later released. The next day, he succeeded in killing himself by hanging himself in his room with his belt.

PM News reports that Timi, who worked as a computer operator in Ibadan, was found dead in his room at Ilupeju area, Baasala, Asero, Abeokuta, Ogun State on Sunday January 5th. A family source disclosed that he'd tried to kill himself last year but was stopped by some people.
“The whole issue is still like a drama because I don’t know what could have made him decide to take his life. We have been looking for him since January 1. Later, we heard that he went to Lagos. He boarded a train from Lagos back to Abeokuta on Saturday and came down at Lafenwa. He trekked from the station through Enu Gada area to Ajitaadun down to Arakanga area with the aim of jumping into the river.
“He was arrested by the security men in the area when they saw him wandering with only his boxer pant on. They handed him over to the Vigilante men at Oke Ilewo for further investigation. We went there to collect him and we were told to come back with him yesterday. On getting to his room, we found out that he had hanged himself. He left a short note, apologizing that he disappointed us,” the source narrated in tears.
When contacted, the spokesman of the Ogun State Vigilante Service, Mr. Soji Ganzallo, confirmed the incident and expressed shock at the boy’s death.

“It is unfortunate that what we tried to prevent eventually happened. They (family) were careless with the way they handled the boy. If the boy had been properly monitored, this sad incident wouldn’t have happened. We got a distress call on Saturday by local security men around Arakanga that a boy was trying to commit suicide by trying to jump into the river. Our men rushed to the area and took the boy to our office.

“In the course of questioning him, he confirmed to us that he left home for Lagos on New Year day but did not tell us where and who he went to meet in Lagos. When we asked about his phone, he said he had no phone but only his sim card was with him.

“Sensing that his parents will be looking for him, I directed that his sim card be inserted into a phone, hoping that someone will call his line,” Ganzallo said.
The vigilante spokesman revealed further that not long after the sim card was inserted into the phone, several calls came in.

“We discovered that those calls were from his mother, sister and a pastor. The pastor later called back and demanded to stand as surety for his bail. We agreed.
“The man of God arrived with the boy’s mother and some relatives. The pastor’s name is Wole Oyenekan and he gave his address as Egba Inner Circle Building, Abiola Way, Abeokuta.
“We questioned the boy but from what I was able to gather, the boy was determined not to tell anybody his problem. The pastor pleaded with me to hand him over to him. I initially disagreed but after much persuasions and assurance that they will monitor him, I released him to them and asked them to come back on Sunday.
“I was shocked when I heard the news that the boy eventually carried out his mission,” Ganzallo lamented.

Another source disclosed that the teenager perfected his suicide by refusing to go to church on Sunday, feigning illness. “I remember that he told the pastor while coming from the Vigilante’s office that he needed some money to pay for his school fees and the pastor told him to see him on Sunday after church service. After the breakfast, he said he was not feeling well and begged to be allowed to stay back, which was granted.

“After the church service, he joined other family members to eat the lunch around 4 p.m. After the food, he went into his room and no one bothered to know what he was doing until around 8p.m. when we were looking for him. When we forced his door opened, we met his lifeless body. He hanged himself with his belt. We went to the Obantoko Police Station to report the matter and the police arrived around 11.45 p.m. and removed his corpse to the mortuary,” he stated.

Tokunbo Akintola said...

I am not surprised something like this can happen in this part of the world where little attention is paid to someone's psychological well being. In a saner society, a suicidal person is never allowed around without prior counselling rehabilitation. I wont be surprised if his parents beat him severely after those initial attempts, without seeking professional and spiritual help for him. It is also in this part of the world someone is released from prison without rehabilitation of any sort.

He is foolish, why waiting for such a long time when he could have easily waited for the train he boarded to Lagos to move and jump in front of it, that could have been a perfect way for him, STUPID idiot! I only pity his family, i don't wanna what kind of problem he must av had that someone else hasn't been in before. Taking ur life, a life given to you by God, i am sure the Angels will beat the hell out of him in heaven, they wont use cane self, they'll use KOBOKO. Mshewwww

Suicidal ideation and suicidal attempt are psychiatric diseases and the boy should have been taken to a psychiatrist. It's not fair to inuslt him or call him names because u won't insult someone who had hypertension or diabetes and insulting him is just exposing ur ignorance.

Depression Relief Guide said...

Its rather unfortunate. There should be involuntary inpatient commitment units in a local psych hospital for anyone that attempts suicide!!!!

In a normal society, he would have been handed over to the police, who would have taken him there!

To me, the poor boy wasn't stupid nor was he ill, the fact is we all have factors that initiates great fear and anxiety in our lives, we re thrown into a traumatic state hence it could lead to suicidal tots, I've had suicidal tot and attempts in d past and even till now but I fink of reasons to stay alive, some ppl re not given such Grace, So we should not blame d boy but we pray He finds peace.

Poor boy. Please, nobody should call him wicked. You simply don't know what he was wrestling with. I've thought of suicide myself for many years. Sometimes, I simply don't feel that life is worth the trouble. That I haven't committed suicide doesn't prove I'm a better person than those who have. As someone brought up a Christian, I'm afraid of eternal torment after suicide and also I can't bear to inflict that pain on my mother. God, please receive the soul of the poor man. Many of us simply can't cope with the challenges life throws at us.

ZeeZee said...

After the funeral of a friends Uncle who commited suicide and was rumored to have had 5 attempts before that point someone told me something i'll neve forget, the said: suicide is a demon, it keeps following you around the day you contemplate it seriously (especially try to do it) until mission accomplished. May God elp the world Amen

Kingsley Okonoda said...

The level of ignorance in our country is huge. Most people who commit suicide have a psychiatric illness of the other. The most logical thing would have been for the boy to be referred for Psychiatric/Psychological treatment instead of being handled by a pastor. The greatest demon plaguing Nigeria is the demon of ignorance.
