by Edit

Residents of Ede community in Osun State were thrown into mourning on July 10, after a 72-year-old man identified as Kareem Aderemi, died by suicide.

The deceased who was said to have been battling Parkinson’s disease and partial blindness, reportedly shot himself dead with a gun at his residence.

Confirming this incident to newsmen, the Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state, Kehinde Adeleke, said the deceased was said to have been living alone without adequate care.

“On July 10, 2023, around 12.50pm, at Alapo’s compound, Ede, Ede North LGA, one Kareem Aderemi, 72, of 45, allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself on the lower jaw with a local barrel. Preliminary investigation revealed that late Aderemi had been battling with Parkinson’s disease and partial eye problems without adequate care. We learnt he had been living alone for some months before he allegedly committed suicide.

It is pertinent to state that late Aderemi had a licensed barrel, and he had always been with his barrel since he partially lost his sight. But no one knew he had a cartridge with which he used to kill himself.” she said

Adeleke stated that the police had retrieved and taken custody of the gun used to commit the act, as the corpse was being prepared for burial.
