MAN IN ONDO HANGS HIMSELF AFTER TESTING POSITIVE TO HIV






A 45-year-old man identified as Abayomi Olarenwaju, allegedly hanged himself after he tested positive to HIV in Ondo state.
According to reports, Olarenwaju was devastated and reportedly carried out the act using a vehicle fan belt in a bush near Akure South Local Government Secretariat in the early hours of yesterday.
It was revealed that the deceased who terminated his life without leaving a note, had just been confirmed positive of the deadly virus.
The Sun reports:


It was gathered that since the hospital revealed Olanrewaju’s health status, his wife and other family members had turned him to an outcast, leaving him dejected. Consequently, he was said to have lived in isolation until he allegedly committed suicide.
Sources stated that his wife moved out of the matrimonial home with their three children few days after he came home with a medical report that confirmed him as HIV positive. Other relations and friends were also said to have deserted him when the information
spread to them through his wife.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr. Wole Ogodo, described Olanrewaju’s death as unfortunate, saying that his remains had been released to his family.
