Sour blues from Baba-Ijebu as operator commits suicide over inability to pay winners in Lagos… indicts stakers


RESIDENTS of Abule-Ijesha, a densely populated community in Sabo area of Lagos woke up Thursday morning to a gory sight of the remains of a middle aged man said to be Baba-Ijebu operator dangling in his shop. The deceased whose identity has yet to be ascertained but popularly called Baba Pool reports say, took his life by hanging himself in his makeshift shop over his inability to allegedly pay stakers who he identified as Bourney and Osuma their winning money. But in a twist of fate, the deceased reportedly dropped a suicide note which he pasted at strategic location in the popular market indicting the duo of Bourney and Oasuma as responsible for his death. The note reads: “For your information, Bourney and Osuma. Two of them kill me. A killer must surely die.” Responding, Madam Aderemi Thomas, a market leader called Iyaloja in Yoruba language confirmed CrimeWorld  finding that the accused persons played lottery in the deceased’s shop, but after winning, they could not get their money; saying, “I was called around 8am to come to the market because Baba Pool had committed suicide.  I called the owner of the shop to join me in the market, but he said he was far away. “When I got to the market, I was told what happened and not long after, the police came to interrogate us and we took them to the scene. “I learnt that Bonny and Osuma came to play lottery in his shop, but he did not submit their tickets to the lottery office. So, when those people realised that they had won, they asked for their money. Instead of explaining to them that he did not submit their tickets, he committed suicide.”
Also confining the sad incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, said the two indicted persons had been arrested for questioning in connection with the suicide; adding, “We received a report about a 70-year-old who committed suicide in the market. The man accused one 85-year-old man and another man.  He left a note that those two people were responsible for his death; we want to look at the extent of their culpability. We have commenced investigation on the role they might have played and on why he accused them.”
