Okeseun Olatunde who is a resident disclosed that Femi was evicted after he attempted to commit suicide. “Femi was evicted by his landlord in February, after he was discharged from hospital, following a failed suicide attempt. “On one of the occasions he jumped into a well but was rescued. After the second failed suicide attempt, his landlord asked him to bring his relatives, but none showed up. He had said severally that he was related to late Fela Anikulapo Kuti. “We also learned he owed the landlord house rent. The landlord had no choice than to evict him, with his property kept outside. He (Femi) took the property to the uncompleted building where he stayed until he was discovered dead last Friday. We suspect he committed suicide.” READ ALSO: Man’s skeleton found in room 7 months after disappearance Another resident, Josiah Madu disclosed that Femi had complained that he was desperate to get married and that business was not going fine.
