A 45 year-old truck driver, Oliver Osieme, committed suicide inside his room at Etegwe community in the Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa on Tuesday the June 24th.
Oliver recently fell into depression after losing his job. His truck had developed a major fault which required so much money for him to fix it.
Yesterday while his wife and every member of his family had gone out for their daily activities, Oliver tied a rope to his ceiling fan and committed suicide.
His body was discovered by his wife’s sister who returned home from school. He left no suicide note.
Confirming the incident, the state police Public Relations Officer, SP. Asinim Butswat, said the command was currently investigating the incident leading to the man’s death.
