Friday Orobator, a staff of Tayo Akpata University, Ekiadolor in Edo State, (earlier College of Education) has purportedly committed suicide.
The deceased who was a principal lecturer in the Department of Adult Education committed suicide due to 13-months unpaid salary.
He was more than 50 years old and his wife had just given birth
The deceased hung himself at his Obakhazbaye residence in Benin on Friday.
Villa Updates reports that his body was found behind his home around 1:30pm with the green rope around his neck.
Policemen from Oba Station moved his body to the mortuary.
The dad of four had griped over his powerlessness to take care of his family and children.
Fred Omonuwa, Chairman, College of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) in the state-claimed establishment, affirmed the non-installment of pay rates.
He said: “Everybody knows that Edo State government owes us 13 months of salary, which we continued to agitate for, even before the September 19 governorship election. It was tagged political agitation.
Some friends of Mr. Orobator in Benin, Lagos, among others, tried their best in the past few weeks to assist him with some money. Quite, unfortunately, Mr. Orobator could no longer provide for himself and his family. His wife has just had a baby. Staff of the institution are pained by the suicide.”
