A man has hanged himself on a mango tree opposite the Alade Stadium at Isoto, Ajasa Command in the Alimosho area of Lagos State. His dangling corpse was seen around 2pm on Sunday by a resident, who raised the alarm. Landlords of the area had invited policemen from the Meiran Division to the scene.
Residents told The Punch that the man, known as water, was without any physical bruises and could not have been killed. The resident later said officials of the State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit had arrived at the scene to remove the corpse.
Olarinde Famous-Cole, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed the incident, noting that the corpse had been deposited in the Lagos Mainland Hospital mortuary for autopsy.
