49-Year Old Managing Director Of Medical Centre Commits Suicide

The 49 year-old Chief Consultant Gynaecologist and Managing Director of Hope Medical Centre Benin City, Dr John Abode, who was found dead in his wardrobe last Tuesday, may have actually committed suicide, Vanguard gathered.

Vanguard learned from a top security source that the deceased who was said to have attempted suicide on several occasions, but was stopped by the widow, injected himself with a yet-to-be disclosed substance before heading to his wardrobe where he hanged himself with his belt.


It was learned that the day the sad incident occurred, the wife attended a church service where she later called their 10-year-old son to inform the father that she wanted to speak with him.

The source told Vanguard:  “It was at that point that the boy searched the house and discovered the deceased body in the wardrobe.”

It was learned  that the deceased’s wife rushed down to their residence and it was in an attempt to see if she could revive the husband that she moved the body out of the wardrobe.

From investigations, the wife had earlier informed the deceased’s family about the attempted suicide in the past by their son, which made the widow to be deeply involved in church activities to intercede for the husband in prayers.

It was further gathered that though the deceased, who also is a staff of the Stella Obasanjo Women and Children Hospital in Benin City, was a successful gynaecologist, his alleged occasional erratic behaviour at home had been a source of great concern to the wife, who had always counselled him against his urge to commit suicide.


Though the deceased’s family is suspecting foul play, autopsy results so far indicated that the deceased died as a result of cessation, mostly caused by suicide. However, the family of the deceased called for another autopsy which is being conducted in Lagos.

    2. Very sad oh. Can't believe this is same doctor that did my fibroid surgery. He actually committed suicide and this was his third attempt. It's so annoying to see someone that has so much good stuff going for then commit suicide. I believe it's undiagnosed depression though cos he stayed indoors for seven months before his death and his wife was the one doing all the work and completed the building of the new hospital during this time. It took the intervention of a Rev Father for him to come out for he commissioning of the hospital. Trust his family to try and blame the wife.

  11. the said man most have been a staunch member of a secret cult were he immerse his wealth and connection if not why would he have attempted suicide severally and finally accomplished it. Perhaps is time for him to sacrifice his family member instead he took their place. I pity the wife and kids, she should take d kids to church for proper deliverance ooo. This is what insatiable desire could lead to.
