See How Debt Pushed A Civil Servant To Suicide In Ekiti.
Afolayan who was an Ara-Ekiti indigent in Ijero Local Government Area worked in the Office of Accountant General as a Principal Executive Officer (PEO) on Grade Level 10 before his sad demise.
One of his colleagues, who craved anonymity told journalists that Afolayan hanged himself by the ceiling of his house located on Peace Avenue, Olorunda, Ado Ekiti.
According to family and friends, although the Late Afolayan never showed any suicidal instincts, he never stopped complaining about his piling debts since the government refused to pay salaries.
The deceased had reportedly been moody and downcasted for weeks but no one thought he would go this far. Not even his wife or the three children he left behind.
Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Alberto Adeyemi who confirmed the incident said the matter was reported at New Iyin Road Police Station in Ado Ekiti.
Afolayan has since been buried, following the incident which occured last Thursday.
