He then proceeded to Ajegunle, where he visited his younger brother, Michael Hunvu. after Hunvu left the Ajegunle area, he entered his house when his children were not around and hanged himself in a room in the house. However, Michael reported the matter at the Morogbo Police Division.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that the family members had requested the corpse for burial.


  1. Have things gone this bad in Nigeria?

  2. That's not the solution to any problem.

  3. A child of God won't consider killing himself.

  4. Suicide is becoming a common in Nigeria.

  5. No matter how bad things might be, you don't need to take your own life. God isn't a fool by giving you life.
