The Lagos State Police Command has commenced investigations to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of a commercial motorcyclist.
The police said that the man’s body was found hanging in an uncompleted building on Sunday in the Aboru area of Lagos State.
The spokesperson of the command, SP Dolapo Badmos, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday that the police could not categorically confirm whether it was a case of suicide.
NAN reports that the remains of the motorcyclist, simply identified as Tunde, was found dangling inside an uncompleted building on Rasaki Sodande Street, at Aboru in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos State by the labourers working there.
The labourers were said to have reported the incident at the Aboru Police Post.
The police spokesperson said that Tunde’s body had been removed from the building and deposited at a morgue for an autopsy report.
“The Lagos State Police Command is trying to unravel the cause of the death and the perpetrators of the dastardly act committed against one Tunde, surname yet unknown.
“The report received by the police on Sunday, Sept. 4, stated that the victim might have been strangled to death and hanged by unknown assailant(s).
“The detectives had also visited the scene of the crime to collect vital information that would help the command in the course of its investigation.
NAN gathered that the victim, said to have married recently, did not leave any suicide note behind.
