A 27-year-old man has allegedly committed suicide at the Police Barracks, Ikeja.
The unidentified man allegedly hanged himself on Saturday on the ceiling fan in the apartment he was occupying.
The Nation reported on Monday that the deceased was a brother to a mobile policeman posted to Operation Lafiya Dole.
The policeman was said to have left the house for his brother to help him financially.
A source told The Nation that the deceased in his suicide note wrote that he was tired of suffering.
“He wrote that he was tired of this life. He was tired of suffering and could not go on. He begged his parents and relations to forgive him. He said he knew the pains they would go through, but he just had to go.
“I don’t know his name, but I know that he was living in the apartment of a mobile policeman. He was a cousin to the policeman.
“Maybe, it is hardship that made him to commit suicide. It is really sad. Policemen from the division evacuated his body,” the source said.
Lagos State police spokesperson Chike Oti is yet to release a report on the incident.
