Borno State Governor’s Steward Commits suicide

The Chief Steward of Governor Kashim Shettima of Borno State, Mr. John Achagwa, has committed suicide at the Presidential Lodge, Government House, Maiduguri barely 24 hours before the handing over ceremony of power to Professor Babagana Zulum.

The Chief steward, who killed himself by hanging on a Neem tree at the Presidential Lodge of the Government, House, was said to have greeted his colleagues at the Lodge at about 1.44pm on Tuesday before he went back and climbed a tree behind the Lodge and hanged himself to death.

A close associate of the Late John Achagwa said the deceased has been complaining about the attitude of his daughter, adding that the late steward has been 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,” he said.

Achagwa, who retired from the civil service about three years ago, was retained by the Governor due to exceptional delicacies. He was also said to have promised to be appointed as Village Head of Dille, Askira Uba local government area.

Other sources at the Government House were of the opinion that the suicide may not be unconnected with the non-payment of his retirement benefit and gratuity, as he has been expecting that he will given his gratuity before the end of Shettima’s tenure.
