A 27-year-old graduate of electrical engineering reportedly poisoned himself after he was blamed for damaging a car in a sachet water factory in Ojodu Berger, Lagos, where he worked. This is coming barely two weeks to the commencement of his one year National Youth Service Scheme.

According to a report by Punch Metro, Oluwamuyiwa bashed the vehicle on another one on the factory premises while trying to help the owner re-park it.

The Osogbo, Osun State indigene, was said to have become desperate to raise N50,000 to repair the damaged car.

In a suicide note he posted on Facebook, a few hours before the incident, he hinted that he was depressed.


He was buried on Saturday at the Atan Cemetery in Yaba, Lagos.

It was learnt that his nickname, Spartacus, evolved from his determination to become a graduate, which made him engage in one menial job or another to sponsor himself.
