Ehhhh, wonders shall end as a 49-year-old Nigerian doctor known as Dr Festus Ojagbemi, who lived a James Bond's life with two women for seven good years and also promised to marry them, but he later killed himself by hanging because his seven years secret was exposed.

When Dr Festus Ojagbemi discovered his secret was exposed, he stabbed himself twice in the chest at his surgery at St Mary’s Medical Centre in Strood but later survived. And while he was recovering, he told the police and both women he had been attacked by a stranger.
Dr Ojagbemi, who worked at St Mary’s Medical Centre in Strood, Kent, confessed to police officers, only to take his own life four days later on February 12, the inquest heard.
Jackie later found him hanged at the detached house they shared in nearby Hempstead. A note signed with his nickname, Wally, was on the TV cabinet. After the Nigerian-born doctor’s death, the cost of leading his double life started to emerge.
Jackie told the Maidstone hearing a credit card firm phoned claiming he owed them £10,000.She said:
“I started phoning and everyone told me how much he owed them.
"By the time we got to the 10th or 11th the bill was huge we just couldn’t get our heads round it.
"I work, I get paid, so we don’t talk about finances. If we go on holiday he pays.’’Jackie claimed Dr Ojagbemi killed himself because of the guilt he felt over his cheating. She said:
“He wanted my attention, he just wanted me to notice he was hurting because of what he had done to me.’’Bamidele did not appear at the inquest but the hearing was told of evidence she gave to police.She claimed Dr Ojagbemi proposed last October and they were preparing for a wedding in April. He rented a flat for her and their child and visited on weekends.She said she knew about Jackie, but he had told her he “did not love her any more”. Bamidele told officers:
“He’s intelligent, loving, caring, he buys me lots of things."Why would he do this to himself? Wally told me not to give anyone the news that we were getting married in April because everyone would go on about it.”
Coroner Gail Elliman said: “I am satisfied Dr Ojagbemi took his own life.”
