An unidentified middle-aged man was in the early hours of Saturday found hanging from a tree on Catholic Mission Road, opposite the Court of Appeal in Lagos Island. They said they would not loosen the noose around the man’s neck or search his pockets for identification purposes until doctors arrived to confirm him officially dead. Some of the people, who had gathered at the scene, busied themselves taking pictures, but no one could identify the man hanging from the tree. He said that he met many people at the scene and that no-one but doctors could confirm the actual time of death. The man was still hanging from the tree as at 9am, when this report was filed.
