Welder Charged With Theft Jumps Out Of 3-Storey Court Building And Dies On The Spot

Tragedy struck at the Ogba Magistrate Court, Lagos, on Wednesday, when a 41-year old welder, Wasiu Olowonle committed suicide by jumping from the THIRD floor of the Court where he was standing trial for allegedly stealing an iron rod valued at N40,000.

Prosecuting officer, Yomi Egunjobi, said the deceased had earlier been arraigned for alleged stealing before an Ikeja Magistrate Court, Lagos but, that the case was struck out by the court, saying that after his discharged, he was again re-arrested for allegedly stealing another item.

Egunjobi said he was shocked by the incident as no one expected him to jump from the third floor of the four-storey court building. The prosecutor added that it was during the announcement of the next case that he jumped off the window and smashed his head on the floor and died immediately.

According to him,the court had already granted him bail in the sum of N20, 000 with one responsible surety. The accused has been in custody at Kirikiri prison for over a month now and was brought to court on Wednesday, 6th December in order for trials to commence.

Egunjobi further said that the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) in connection with the prison authorities, after obtaining a police report, took the deceased’s body to the mortuary.

Nawa ooo
He was even granted bail
Why did he opt to die than going back to kirikiri? But I heard that place is not good at all. Maybe the man decided rather to die than go back to prison.


He must be under aaspell.why commit suicide after being granted bail
