Shepe, Ogogoro, Paraga or Akpeteshie may have been the cause of the death of a 32-year-old man, Saidi Taiwo (aka Akinigai) who slumped and died at Ago-Igbira, around Adifase, Apata-Ganga area of Ibadan last Saturday.

The deceased reportedly died after consuming locally-made gin (known as paraga) at a relaxation spot called Paraga Joint around 10.30 a.m.

Mr. Taiwo was said to have abandoned his wife and his new-born baby, delivered recently, and relocated to Apata-Ganga to stay with a friend called Wasiu.

The deceased, a commercial driver, reportedly ran away from home to avoid responsibilities, but chose to keep moving from one joint to the other with his friend to celebrate the arrival of the new baby; before his death at the weekend.

The death was reported at the Apata Divisional Police Headquarters before the family later came to take away his corpse for burial.
