Lagos electrician

The family of Hakeem Sanusi, a 28-year-old Lagos electrician living in the Surulere area of Lagos State, has been thrown into confusion after he went missing.                                                                                                                                                                  PUNCH reported that Hakeem left home on Wednesday last week after dropping a suicide note and had not returned.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  It was gathered that Hakeem had a conversation with his mother around 8.30pm that day and stepped out afterwards, telling his mother that he wanted to take fresh air.

Hakeem’s sister, Jumoke Sanusi, said “My mother asked him when he was going out if she should prepare his food, but he said she should not bother.

“When it was around 12 am, my mother realised that my brother had not come back. She called his phone number and it rang out many times.

“When she woke up around 6 am to pray, she tried his telephone number again, but it was switched off. She thought he would come back later in the day and resumed what she was doing.

“When it was around 11 am, she tried the phone number, but it was still switched off. She went to his room to check his wardrobe, only for her to see a suicide note addressed to her.

“What he wrote was, don’t bother to look for me, I am tired of this life and I have gone to meet Dagrin. I am sorry.”

She said after discovering the suicide note, her mother became afraid for her son, adding that Dagrin was Hakeem’s favourite artiste.

“Some of his friends were contacted, but they claimed that they did not know his whereabouts.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, adding that the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, had ordered all the police stations in the state to be on the lookout for Hakeem.
