Former Nigerian Minister Gets Released From Custody

Bunmi Ipinnaiye, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ponyan Ward, Yagba East Local Government Area, Kogi State, has been said to have committed suicide in a Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps cell.

Ipinnaiye had been arrested for the attempted murder of his son, who was said to be fraternising with some boys who were allegedly involved in social vices.

It was gathered that the deceased had attacked his son with a machete on their way to the farm and the incident was reported to the Civil Defence, which led to his arrest.

A source said, the late APC chairman refused to respond to questions and was left in one of the rooms in the security outfit office.

When the officers returned to resumed interrogation, he was found dead after using his belt to commit suicide by hanging himself.
