An aspiring lawyer with prospects decided to end his own life after allegedly committing suicide in Benin City last weekend. The deceased who is a final-year law student of the University of Benin, (UNIBEN), identified as Daniel Iyoha, was said to have hanged himself in a room at his family residence at No. 17, Obamwonyi Street, Off Universal Road, Benin City.

Sources in the area alleged that on that fateful day, the deceased, after returning from morning mass, washed his clothes, tidied his room and remained at home till dusk when he took his own life. They however described his stay at home that day as unusual of him.

It was gathered that the deceased committed the act when his mother left the compound to see a neighbour. He reportedly tied himself to a ceiling fan with a wrapper in his room after shutting the door behind him.

Not even his sister who was reading in another room, suspected what was happening until their mother returned home and apparently anxious to ascertain the whereabouts of Daniel, forcefully opened the door to the room and saw the lifeless body of her son dangling from the ceiling.

The late Daniel who was described as a very busy person by his neighbours, was said to have combined his academic work with sales of auto mobile spear parts at his shop at Uwelu, Benin City.
