22-year-old man commits suicide in Anambra
A 22-year-old man, Chika Alex-Chukwuezie has committed
suicide in Ubaekwem community in Ihiala Local government area of Anambra state.
The deceased, of Umuanasa clan, reportedly hung on a family
mango tree for yet to be ascertained reason.
The deceased according to reports until his death was an
active youth in the Umuezekwe political ward of Ihiala LGA.
A family member who preferred anonymity said the act might
not be unconnected to spiritual liberation defect, due to the reoccurring
suicide incidents that plague the family.
He said, “He was a single unemployed young man who had
completed his SSS exams, with the hope to excel in business after schooling.
“One of his uncles also committed suicide at youthful age
decades ago. “The family had to subject itself to spiritual cleansing to avert
recurrence of the unfortunate incident.”
“Efforts are ongoing to bring in traditionalists who will
cutoff the orange tree and sanctify the compound,” a source added.
Police Public Relation officer in the state, Harunna
Muhammed, confirmed the incident.
He said investigation was on to ascertain the circumstances
surrounding the suicide.
