The Chief Steward to the Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, John Achagwa, has allegedly committed suicide.
Achagwa committed suicide at the Presidential Lodge in the state’s Government House in Maiduguri.
The Chief Steward was said to have greeted his colleagues at the lodge at about 1: 44 pm on Tuesday before he went back and climbed a tree behind the lodge and hang himself to death.
Speaking with New Telegraph, a close associate of Achagwa said the deceased has been complaining about the attitude of his daughter, saying ”this girl will kill me.”
”He came and asked me to delete someone’s number from his phone. I told him I don’t know how to delete it. He left angrily, only for me to hear that he has hanged himself, after some few minutes,” the associate told New Telegraph.
Mr Achagwa who retired from the civil service about three years ago was retained by the governor due to exceptional delicacies he prepares.
He was also said to have promised to be appointed as Village Head of Dille, Askira Uba local government area.
