Tella Adedapo, a sergeant of the Nigerian army has on Friday, July 26, 2019, has been found dead in what appears to be a suicide.
Adedapo, a driver attached to the budget and planning department at the army headquarters in Abuja, was said to have hung himself on the ceiling fan in his apartment— flat two, block F, Muhammadu Buhari quarters at Gowon barracks.
It is not immediately clear what prompted Adedapo’s decision but a note he left behind suggested he was having issues with his wife.
“What’s Rose problem with my work, is this husband and wife? Ask Rose the problem she has with my work,” the note read.
TheCable gathered his body has been moved to the National Hospital in Abuja.
Sagir Musa, army’s spokesman, was yet to respond to TheCable’s message seeking details on the matter.
Over the months, soldiers have continually complained about poor welfare.
