According to Daily Post, the APC chairman was arrested by NSCDC officials for the attempted murder of his son who was said to be fraternizing with some boys who are allegedly involved in social vices.
It was also 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.
Sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity, said Ipinnaiye refused to respond to questions when being interrogated and he was left in one of the rooms in the security outfit office.
When the NSCDC officers returned to resume interrogation, the APC Chairman was found dead after using his belt to commit suicide by hanging himself.
Efforts to confirm the incident from the Public Relations Officer of Kogi State Command of NSCDC, Alex Agiri, proved abortive as his phone was switched off.
KanyiDaily had recently reported how a female Glo accountant, Folake Abiola committed suicide due to depression in her apartment in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
