An 80-year-old man named Isiyaka Ayinde has been found dead at the Watch Tower in the Araromi Imota area of Lagos State.

The incident happened around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, according to reports.

A police source said that a tenant in the building discovered the man hanging in the kitchen with a rope around his neck.

“He heard his children shouting that he should come and see Baba in the kitchen. When he ran into the kitchen, he saw the lifeless body of the tenant hanging on a rope that was tied to the burglary proof of one of the windows in the kitchen,” the police source said.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident when contacted by our correspondent.

He mentioned that the deceased’s family wanted the body to be buried right away because of their age and religious beliefs.

He said, “The scene has been visited by the DCB personnel of the division, and photographs were taken.

“The family of the deceased is not interested in depositing the body at the mortuary but rather prefer burying the corpse immediately as a result of the age and religious inclination of the deceased.”
