An official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) has allegedly committed suicide, a source close to the victim says.
The body of the official simply identified as Akinde was seen dangling on a tree in Opebi near the popular Adebola House.
The Nation learnt that he was recently redeployed from his Alausa base, but was not happy about the redeployment.
A source close to the late Akinde said he was battling with mental illness.
“We don’t know what could have led to the incident. He was working at Alausa before his new posting. He did not hide his intention of not being happy with the posting.
“Though, he was suffering from mental illness. I think only those closer to him knew that. It was a big tragedy for the LASTMA family,” the source said.
