Itsekiri indigene hangs self to death in friends compound in Warri

An indigene of Itsekiri ethnic nationality simply identified as Timi
on Christmas eve hung himself to death in his friends compound at

No.1 Chief Odeli Ofoluwafor Street, off London Opi Street in Warri,
Delta State, DAILY POST is reporting.

It was gathered that the deceased was in the place to visit his friend at about 10am on Christmas eve.
The lifeless body of the deceased was later seen dangling in an uncompleted
building behind the premises moments later by neighbours.

As at the time DAILY POST visited, the entrance gate to the
compound was locked due to an alleged instruction of the Police from “B”
Division in Warri.

A source who spoke to DAILY POST on condition of anonymity while

peeping from the compound’s gate with so much apprehension this
morning said, “Timi do come to visit one his friends who comes here

I don’t know the name of the friend. We only saw the

body of Timi dangling in a rope that day at about 10am and we called
the Police from “B” Division who came to carry the dead body to the
Central Hospital Mortuary in Warri. Police say we should not allow
anybody to come inside the compound. That was the instruction.”

Contacted, the Divisional Police Officer of “B” Division, CSP Anieteh
Eyoh declined comments on the matter as he referred our Correspondent to the Delta State Command.

The Delta State Acting Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew
Aniamaka lamented saying, “The entrance gate could be under lock and
key to prevent people from tampering with the evidence and for
homicide investigation to take place. However, give me one hour to get beck to you for more information.”
