Ekiti LG chieftain drowns self inside well

The Director of Finance, Ise/Orun Local Government Area in Ekiti State, Mr. Michael Kayode Bamisaye, has allegedly committed suicide at his residence in Ado-Ekiti, capital of the state.

  Bamisaye, according to reports, took his own life by jumping into a well in his compound located behind Tinuola Maximum School, off Afao Road, Ado-Ekiti. 

   It had not been established why the late Bamisaye committed suicide.

Findings by journalists revealed that he had earlier attempted killing himself by drinking water mixed with cement, a move which was then unsuccessful.

   A source said: “The deceased woke up at about 4.00am to assist his wife to do some house chores and even called some council workers he used to convey to Ise everyday to be ready to join him to their station.

  “All of a sudden, he disappeared and went outside with the wife

looking for him. Later she discovered that the well was opened and they saw the body floating.

  “The wife and other people who joined her searching later saw the

cement he had mixed with water which he might have taken before taking the plunge into the well.

  “The men of the State Fire Service had come to remove the corpse which has since been deposited at the mortuary.”

  Spokesperson, Ekiti State Police Command, Mr. Caleb Ikechukwu, Deputy Superintendent of Police, was not available for comments as at the time of filing this report.
