Is it really worth it? How can one take his life because of a lover? People are losing it these days.

A 33-year-old graduate of Tai Solarin University of Education, Oluwatosin Otaiku stabbed himself to death on Saturday, in Onikolobo area of Abeokuta Ogun state on Saturday after his fiancee, one Oluwatoyin Olaogun after his girlfriend dumped him.

Narrating on how the incident happened: Friends and neighbors heard about his girlfriend Oluwatoyin’s decision to call off their relationship, they invited her over at their residence in Onikolobo area of Abeokuta to resolve the issue.

An eyewitness said Tosin had hidden a knife in his pocket during the mediation, which he eventually used to stab himself when he discovered that his fiancee was not ready to change her mind, despite the intervention of neighbours and friends.

“Tosin was immediately rushed to Mercy Hospital at Panseke from where he was referred to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, but he died on the way to the hospital. It was a rude shock to me,”. “Come rain, come shine, Tosin would never be cowed by anybody and would never for any reason, change his decision.

A day to his death, he had called me to explain what was happening between him and the lady. We spoke for about 11 minutes and I agreed to visit the two of them the following day to settle the discord between them, only to receive a phone call that he had killed himself. I can’t still believe it. Why would Tosin take such a terrible decision? I can’t explain it,” he narrated.

“When we were in school at TASUED in Ijagun, a similar thing happened. But for God’s mercy on him, he would have died. He drank kerosene when Ope, a student of Polytechnic, Ibadan, whom he was dating then, broke up with him. If not for God and some of us who rallied to save him then, he would have died.

We were then living at Overcomers Hall, Imaweje, very close to Ijagun. Everybody was aware of that incident. You can check round to confirm this,”

Late Tosin was a motherless child from Odogbolu in Ogun state. He graduated from Tai Solarin University with a degree in Political Science back in 2010.

He worked as a managing director at a business centre in Onikolobo area of Abeokuta until his death.
