One Gbenga Ogundana, 33, has been found dead in his rented apartment at Orisunmibare Street, Cultural centre area, along Ondo road in Akure, the state capital.
The body of the victim was said to have started decomposing as it was found four days after his family and fellow tenants had not seen him.
Remains of the deceased have been deposited at the morgue of the State Specialist Hospital, Akure, for postmortem examination after the photograph had been taken.
Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, CIID, of the Ondo State Police Command is currently probing the cause of the man’s death.
But it was suspected that Ogundana must have poisoned himself as he was recently sacked from his place of work.
A source informed LEADERSHIP Friday that during the week at about 6:30pm, the elder brother of the deceased, one Segun Ogundana, who resides at, No. 37, Esure Street, Ijoka, Akure, visited his younger brother(the deceased),after several calls made to his phone were not picked.
He disclosed that the elder brother on his visit found the windows and door of the deceased’s apartment firmly locked from within.
