A 22-year-old commercial motorcycle rider, Ayuba Sarafa, has hanged himself in an uncompleted building beside his uncle’s house at Amuloko area of Olorunsogo in Ona Ara Local Government Area of Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
He was said to have gone out on Thursday morning with his motorcycle, but was not seen till his dead body was found on Friday morning where he had purportedly hanged himself.
Mother of the deceased, simply identified as Nike, was said to have wept uncontrollably, as she alleged that his son was wasted by some evil forces.
The deceased’s uncle, Kazeem Tijani, said the whereabouts of Ayuba was not known until Friday when his phone was being called to ascertain his state and the ringing tone was being heard close by.
He added that after intent listening, a woman traced the tone to the uncompleted building, where he was found hanging. The phone was in his pocket.
According to findings, the deceased was initially a tailor and he was doing fine.
The Chairman of the Okada Riders Association at Amuloko where Ayuba was a member, Mr. Oluwatosin James, also said the news of Ayuba’s death came to them as a rude shock.
He disclosed they heard the news at the Park on Friday morning while described Tijani as very reticent personality who would not fight anybody
