Grandfather hangs self over bank loan

There was confusion at Oke Ayepe area of Osogbo, Osun State, on Wednesday when family members found the lifeless body of an elderly man, Hassan Adisa, dangling in a store in his residence.

It was gathered that Adisa, who was in his 70s, had been having issues with a financial institution which gave him a loan facility. He was said to have terminated his life to prevent being ridiculed.

A family source told our correspondent, who visited the residence, that none of the family members knew the actual amount of money the deceased owed.

Two of his commercial buses were said to have been confiscated by his creditors, while the third bus was found parked in front of the house on Wednesday.

According to the family source, the deceased woke up early and prepared for the morning prayer at a mosque opposite his residence.

The source said that the deceased’s relatives were, however, surprised that the septuagenarian did not attend the prayer despite preparing for it.

He said on returning to the house, the family members headed for his room but did not find him there. He was later found dangling in a store within the house.

Adisa, who was dressed in a black singlet and yellow lace trousers, was said to have be found dangling on a rope tied to the roof of the storeroom.

Some members of the family blamed the suicide on spiritual forces, saying the deceased had grown up children who could assist him to repay the loan. is your one-stop online news magazine blog.
