New reports have just confirmed the tragic story of a Chinese national who allegedly hanged himself in his Ikeja apartment in Lagos.
According to Eagle Online which first shared the story, the 50-year-old man, identified only as Si Guical, reportedly hung himself by the neck against a noose tied to an iron window inside his apartment at 11, Itohan Avenue in Ikeja.
It is however unclear what led him to do this, or if it was truly a case of suicide as perceived.
However, confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Command Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Dolapo Badmus, said that officers from the Man Centre Division visited the deceased home, and that Guical’s corpse had been deposited in a morgue, awaiting autopsy.
This comes weeks after a Chinese couple was arrested in Lagos for setting part of a hotel on fire in Ikeja, destroying property valued at N17 million.
