An official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) has allegedly committed suicide.
The body of the official simply identified as Akinde was seen dangling on advertising billboard at Opebi near the popular Adebola House.
We gathered that he was recently redeployed from his Alausa base to Ijora but was not happy about the redeployment.
Sources also said that Akinde was battling with mental illness, which he is said to have began along the line of duty.
“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. He was not married.
He once trekked from Lagos to Sagamu. LASTMA management sent people to bring him back to Lagos and was made to undergo treatment.
