The city of Ibadan, Oyo State, was thrown into confusion when a man on suicide mission jumped down from a network mast of a bank in Sango axis of the city on Saturday, March 30, 2019. The man was suspected to be mentally unstable. It was puzzling how the man got to the top of the mask from where he jumped to his death unnoticed; although, Saturday was not a working day which may have reduced human traffic in the area.
The Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, of the Oyo State Police Command, Olugbenga Fadeyi, acknowledged the incident, explaining that the naked victim entered the bank’s premises through the small gate and climbed the mast before the security personnel noticed his presence on top of the mast.
The PPRO confirmed that the deceased jumped down from the roof of the mast before the arrival of the Police and Fire Service personnel.
The corpse has been deposited at a Hospital for autopsy while the Police are making efforts to ascertaining the identity of the deceased or locate his relations.
