Prior to his death, Taiwo was said to have repeatedly expressed his displeasure over the 'uncaring attitude' of his father who was a US-based Pathologist with the Red Cross Society.
According to reports from family members, Mr Clement Ariyo who had two wives, took care of his second wife and her children while ignoring his first wife and her three children.
Here's what a family member told Punchng about why the victim's father was to blame for his death:
“The problem is that the father does not care for them. On that day, he said he would sacrifice himself for the other two children. He said maybe if he died, their father would wake up to the reality.”
Speaking on the death of his son, Clement said:
“I did not take care of him? Care for a 34-year-old person that went to school and got married? A man that had children with different women? And now that he is dead, he has added more to my burden.
Did you know that he had his first child 10 years ago? And I have been the one responsible for him. He had another child last year, but he denied the paternity. I am 66 and should be retired ordinarily.
He was a controversial son for 34 years that he lived. I woke up on Saturday to see a suicide note that he sent to me. I immediately called his twin brother to go after him. Many women have called me to say they had relationship with him. One claimed that she had no fewer than 10 abortions for him and he still dumped her for another girl.
When I came to Lagos last November, I counselled him to get his act together. Instead, he lied to me that he wanted money to travel to see his son in Ado Ekiti and I gave him N37,500. He didn’t visit him. At another time, I bought clothes for that boy, but he didn’t deliver them."
Chai! RIP to him!
