Michael Asiwaju, an entrepreneur popularly known as Mike Cash, has committed suicide after he was accused of rape on Twitter.
Asiwaju, who owns the furniture company Asiwaju Royal Furniture, has a week ago been accused of rape, a claim he denied on his timeline @Asiwaju_limited
Punch reports that he was found dead in a hotel in Lagos. He was suspected to have taken Sniper, a powerful fumigation liquid.
His body was discovered around 12 AM on January 13, a day after he left a suicide note on his Twitter:
Goodbye I’ll die soon . Am (sic) gone.
The tweet was last of several with which he denied claims that he raped a woman.
Another Twitter user @thatgoddess had shared a tweet saying she had some information about how he raped a woman inside his car, but the information was still sketchy.
