His body was discovered  this Sunday morning by a local fisherman.

Mr Adesina ​Tiamiyu​ said the Police will carry out further investigation on the incident so that they can be able to ascertain why Mr Oluseye Adekunle had decided to take his life by jumping into the lagoon.

​The official urged Lagosians to be their brother’s keeper by ​promptly reporting suicide attempts to relevant authorities. He hopes by doing so, they can be able to avert another tragic occurrence.

The deceased was said to have left his state of residence in Ondo state a few days ago to attend a programme at the Redemption Camp, according to a family member. His family members are still unable to establish the reason why he chose to take his life.

Footage from the Close Circuit Televison showed the deceased, Adekunle Oluseyi, reportedly took off his clothes, phone, wristwatch, wallet, band and shoes before jumping into the water at about 10am on Friday.

LCCI officials, on getting the information, checked their Close Circuit Television (CCTV) footage and realised it was true, before alerting emergency workers.

Homosexuals

The Abia State Police Command has arrested and paraded six suspected homosexuals in Abia State.

According to Linda Ikeji,  the suspected homosexuals were caught kissing and caressing at the City Global Hotel in Aba.

The Abia state police commissioner, Anthony Ogbizi, disclosed that the manager of the hotel alerted the Police when two homosexuals were found kissing at the hotel bar.

The suspects, however, denied committing the crime, saying that they were in Aba for the birthday party of one of their friends, Ndubuisi, adding that their families were not aware that they were arrested.

According to one of the suspects arrested who was identified as Chidera, they were all in one room because they were told that the category of the room they asked for was not available.

“I arrived at the hotel at about 6 pm and I asked my friend to book for a room for me. The hotel management said we should pay N5,000 for a room and we could afford it. So, we decided to manage that one room. After drinking at the hotel bar, we went to the room to change our clothes. It was at that time that we heard a knock on the door and when we opened the door, the manager started asking why we were six in the room. After explaining to him, he said they don’t allow more that three persons in a room and that was how he accused us of practising homosexuality in the room. There was nothing like kissing or making love in the room and we are not gays.”

Another suspect who gave his name as Ndubuisi who is a hairstylist stated that he only invited his friends for his birthday party and lodged them in the hotel, adding that they did not indulge in any homosexual act.

The Commissioner further noted that the Hotel Management would present the evidence against the suspected homosexuals who he said would be charged to court soon.

Abayomi Shogunle

Twitter is currently on fire as Nigerians call on Twitter authorities to deactivate the account of the most controversial police officer in Nigeria, ACP Abayomi Shogunle, who serves as the Head of the Public complaint rapid response unit.

Since the beginning of the clamour for a scrap of SARS, Abayomi Shogunle has become a popular figure on every social media platform for always talking down of Nigerians who call for a scrap of the Police unit.

However, Nigerians are tired of stomaching his frequent support for perceived dehumanization by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad(SARS).

This has triggered the annoyance of Nigerians on Twitter to report the policeman in their thousands so that his account can be suspended.

Here is an example of his thought that has angered Nigerians:

Here are some tweets from Nigerians about the report of Shogunle:
