👤 By Adenike Lucas, DENISAURUS News

Sunday Offre, a 34-year-old driver at Aso Villa, who attempted suicide in a bush in Kubwa, a suburb of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has been rescued, DENISAURUS News has learned.

Mr Offre, a father of two on Grade Level 3 with a monthly salary of N25,000 was saved by the alarm raised by his wife.

The 34-year-old who joined the service of the State House in 2009, wrote a suicide note, which his wife saw on the table.

Workers at the State House told Daily Trust that “she raised the alarm that attracted their neighbour.

“They saw him dangling on the tree in a bush in their neighbourhood. When he was found they thought that he had passed.”

The driver who lamented about his poor pay was later taking to the State House clinic in an unconscious state.

Reporters have been unable to gain access to him since the incident, this paper understands.

President Muhammadu Buhari, who promised to kill corruption and lead the fight against insurgency from the front has been accused of crashing the economy and being lopsided in his fight against graft.

An anti-corruption officer, Ibrahim Mustafa Magu, appointed to superintend a leading anti graft agency in Nigeria was indicted for corruption.

Mr Magu, whose promotion was first reported by DENISAURUS News, was described as a perennial offender by the Department of State Security Service, DSS. Consequently, his nomination as the fourth chairman of the EFCC was rejected twice by lawmakers.

Despite Mr Magu’s rejection, he remains at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, with the support of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
