Details: How Glo Manager 'Adebayo Ola-Smith' Committed Suicide (Narrated by his sister)

I got this story as a response to my post on the Glo manager who committed suicide yesterday (click HERE to read the story if you missed it) and I think it's worth a full post on it's own.

Cynthia, the lady who wrote it said she's the late's man's sister and went on to tell the story. I tried to contact her for details and probably pictures, unfortunately, she didn't leave any contacts.

Cynthia, when you see this, send me a mail via:

Continue to read her account of what really happened.

It was not speculated.. The deceased wrote in the letter that so so so and so s responsible for this mess. He mentioned names and he apologized to his family. He is dead anyway. His name is not tayo.

His full name is Adebayo Ola-SMith.. His Linkedin Page

May his soul rest in peace.

Even the hospital UCH is nothing but mere opportunist. When are we going to grow up. Can you imagine to carry out complete autopsy on his dead body, UCH charged 500,000 Naira because he was working with Glo. On normal circumstances it should not cost more than 12-20k. Just because he worked for GLO. UCH Ibadan charged 500,000 Naira.

Glo on the other end did not pay for it. Right now no one really knows if he actually committed the suicide himself or some hired killers were involved.

In other countries, complete Autopsy is mandatory and found in almost every police backyard. I know this because I was there and the deceased is my blood brother...You can confirm it.

At this point everyone is only speculating and that is the option left,giving the kind of society we live in,,,. It could be anything..

He mentioned names in the letter he wrote before he committed suicide. Names Originating from his work place said and quote "Mr so so so so and so is responsible for this mess". And after that he wrote he is sorry to his 3 kids and wife + family.

He had three boys, was well to do and a beautiful wife. He invested a lot in himself, so as his late mum and dad really invested in him. One wonders how could a man with a beautiful wife,3 kids, a good job, 3 degrees together with several certifications hung himself.. I know him very well. He would never do such a thing.

On the morning of that day. He went to work and got a phone call, told his workers that he is going home. Only to get home and later found dead body, his neck tied firmly to a rope hanging in the center of his sitting room.
