The man hung himself in his residence after sending suicide text to his mother, wife and children.
The Nation reports that Oyeniyi, one of the armed guards in the security department, left his workplace around Kanmi bus stop at Ifewara road, Ile-Ife, to commit suicide.
Oyeniyi sent text messages to his mother, wife and his two children, informing them that he was not interested in living again.
A source in the area named Tolani said, “The incident happened around noon. I saw people rushing to his apartment to get to see for themselves to be sure of what Mr. Oyeniyi has done to himself.
“We saw where he hung himself, dangling on the rope inside. He has been buried. This is so sad.”
Another source said he committed suicide after two hours that he sent the suicide text to his family.
When The Nation contacted the spokesperson of Nigeria Police, Osun state, Yemisi Opalola, she said the matter was yet to be reported to the police.
However, the public relation officer of OAU, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju, confirmed the incident. He said Oyeniyi left office after he sent a suicide text to his mother, wife and children.
