A young man who is yet to be identified before filling this report was over the weekend found hanging from a tree on Catholic Mission Road, opposite the Court of Appeal in Lagos Island.
The man, who was putting on a local attire, was discovered hanging on a rope which looked like a braided long scarf, tied to a fruit tree.
According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Policemen at the scene of the incident confirmed the happening, but told NAN that they were not allowed to comment on the issue yet until proper investigation was carried out.
The police said they decided not to loosen the noose around the man’s neck or search his pockets for identification purposes until doctors arrived to confirm him officially dead.
There was confusion at the scene as one Mr Ige Adedoja, a resident of the area, who was at the scene of the incident, said that traditional rites needed to be performed before anyone could loosen the noose from the man’s neck.
He said that he met many people at the scene and that no-one but doctors could confirm the actual time of death.
