The family of Late Sir Michael Kayode Bamisaye has dismissed the insinuations that his death had political undertone.
They said they were saddened by the demise of their patriarch who, until his death, was director of Finance in Ise-Orun Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Late Bamisaye had, on Monday, July 30, 2018, committed suicide at his residence in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.
He reportedly jumped into the well in his compound behind Tinuola Maximum School, off Afao Road area of the town.
The cause of the suicide could not be immediately established.
In a statement signed for and on behalf of the family by Mr Cosmas Bamisaye, made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti, yesterday, they described the deceased as a dedicated and committed person in various aspects of life while alive.
They said though, he always exercised his civic responsibility during elections; there was nothing in the note he left behind to suggest that his death was connected with politics.
The statement reads in part: “We are conscious that the social media and some news outlets have since been awash with lots of insinuations and half-truths that have added to our sorrow as a family.
“Our father and brother, who had always been a role model in his commitment, dedication and discipline in various aspects of his life, had over-time, seen himself as one who had failed, even though he had never failed.
“He left the family a note that is completely devoid of politics. He was not a politician but has always exercised his franchise as a good citizen.
“We therefore rest our case with his creator who knows all things and to whom we shall individually return. We are grateful to families, friends, associates and colleagues that are condoling us at this our difficult moment.”
