The father of four had complained over his inability to feed his family to close friends.

Fred Omonuwa, Chairman, College of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) in the state-owned institution, confirmed the non-payment of salaries.

He said: “Everybody knows that Edo State government owes us 13 months of salary, which we continued to agitate for, even before the September 19 governorship election. It was tagged political agitation.

“Some friends of Mr. Orobator in Benin, Lagos, among others, tried their best in the past few weeks to assist him with some money. Quite, unfortunately, Mr. Orobator could no longer provide for himself and his family. His wife has just had a baby. Staff of the institution are pained by the suicide.”
