Man Who Stabbed Self To Death After Fiance Called It Quits Had Attempted Suicide Before

Posted in: , , ,

Oluwatosin Otaiku who stabbed himself to death last Saturday after his fiancee called it quits with him, has attempted suicide in the past after being jilted by his undergraduate love.

33-year-old Otaiku, an orphan and a University graduate, stabbed himself to death in Ogun State after a mediation meeting organised by neighbours failed to get his estranged fiancee, Oluwatoyin Olaogun, to come back to him failed to achieve that aim.

Apparently, the deceased had attended the meeting with a knife in his pocket. He then stabbed himself on realising that Oluwatoyin would not change her mind.

PM News gathered from a friend of the deceased that Otaiku had also attempted to kill himself back in his days as an undergraduate. The friend said,

“When we were in school at TASUED in Ijagun, a similar thing happened. But for God’s mercy on him, he would have died. He drank kerosene when Ope, a student of Polytechnic, Ibadan, whom he was dating then, broke up with him. If not for God and some of us who rallied to save him then, he would have died.”

This time around, however, he was successful in his suicide attempt. An eyewitness said the late Otaiku died from the stab wounds before they could get him to the hospital.

“Tosin was immediately rushed to Mercy Hospital at Panseke from where he was referred to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, but he died on the way to the hospital," 

Another quoted source said the deceased was strong-willed.

“Come rain, come shine, Tosin would never be cowed by anybody and would never for any reason, change his decision."

Well, suicide is never the answer, and being jilted should not be the end of life.

May God console his family and friends.
