Soldier ‘Commits Suicide’ Inside Abuja Barracks


A sergeant of the Nigerian army, identified as Tella Adedapo, has reportedly committed suicide in Abuja.

Adedapo, a driver attached to the budget and planning department at the army headquarters, reportedly hung himself on the ceiling fan in his apartment— flat two, block F, Muhammadu Buhari quarters at Gowon barracks.

It is yet to be ascertained what pushed Adedapo into taking his life, but a note he left behind suggested he was having issues with his wife.

It read, “What’s Rose problem with my work, is this husband and wife? Ask Rose the problem she has with my work.”

His body has been moved to the National Hospital Abuja.
