Residents of  Alhaji Aboki Street in Abaranje area of Ikotun have been thrown into confusion, following the discovery of the lifeless body of a 40-year-old resident known simply as Femi, in an uncompleted building.

Late Femi was said to have committed suicide out of frustration and his inability to get married at 40.

The incident occurred barely two months after he was evicted from his one -room apartment on 27, Alhaji Aboki Street.

It was gathered that late Femi, popularly known as Fela, had earlier attempted to take his life twice.

A resident, who gave his name as Okeseun Olatunde, disclosed that “Femi was evicted by his landlord in February,  after he was discharged from hospital, following a failed suicide attempt.
“On one of the occasions he jumped into a well but was rescued. After the second failed suicide attempt, his landlord asked him to bring his relatives, but none showed up. He had said severally that he was related to late Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

“We also learned he owed the landlord house rent. The landlord had no choice than to evict him, with his property kept outside. He (Femi) took the property to the uncompleted building where he stayed until he was discovered dead last Friday. We suspect he committed suicide.”

Another resident, Josiah Madu, who said late Femi was a bricklayer, disclosed that he had complained severally that business was not forth-coming and that he desperately wanted to get married.

Madu said: “He told some of us in March last year that every woman he approached for marriage complained about his financial status. At a point, he started keeping to himself.”
Police sources hinted that investigation into the cause of the death had begun.
