Unconfirmed - The Chairman, Osun State Bankers’ Forum Mr. Aderemi Oyelade commits suicide

Oyelade, who was the Branch Manager, WEMA Bank, Igbonna, Osogbo, left a suicide note at his apartment near GOF Group of Schools in Onward area of the state capital.
The bank manager, who was at work on Wednesday, was found dead in his apartment on Thursday morning.
The suicide note he left, obtained exclusively by our correspondent, reads, “Do not link my death with anybody. I caused it. Bose, I’m very sorry I have to die this way.”

One of the sympathisers who saw his corpse before it was deposited at the mortuary of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, said Oyelade took some alcohol to bolster his resolve for the suicide.
The sympathiser, who is a popular pharmacist in Osogbo, disclosed that a black powdery substance and four bottles containing different portions were found in the dead banker’s sitting room.
He said, “He didn’t wind up the window of his vehicle. He also did not shut the gate to his house. It was a well orchestrated suicide; he prepared for it. I saw him last week and we spoke, I never knew that was the last time I will ever speak with him.

“I could smell alcohol in the sitting room. The smell of alcohol was pungent. His mother is still alive. I don’t know how we are going to break the news to the mother. It is better we don’t let her know at all. He is from Iragbiji town,” the Pharmacist narrated.

An official of WEMA Bank, who did not want his name in print, said Oyelade, popularly called Prince, was above 50 years in age.
The source said, “He has his children and wife in Ibadan. Some of his children are graduates. One of them is serving in the National Youth Service Corps scheme.

“He’s an experienced banker, a dedicated and hardworking staff. He has no problem at work. It’s very sad.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Oluwagbemileke Taiwo, said he was unaware of the incident but an official of Ladoke Akintola University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, confirmed that Oyelade’s corpse had been deposited in the hospital’s mortuary.
