23-year-old boy commits suicide in Adamawa

A 23-year-old boy, Fidelis Musa has committed suicide on Thursday in Jimeta Yola, Adamawa State after breaking his mother’s hand.

Musa corpse was later seen dangling in his room; while a pregnant woman reportedly showed up at the compound, claiming the late Musa impregnated her.

An anonymous source who is Musa’s neighbour told Vanguard the deceased was a drunk who always fomented trouble in the community and he had attacked his mother the same day he took his life. “The man was restless throughout today (yesterday); he fought everybody that came to their house and broke his mother’s left hand,” the source said.

According to Vanguard, an elder sister and uncle to the deceased also reacted to the sad happening. The sister said the family was shocked by the claim of the pregnant lady.

Ali Hassan said: “I am uncle to the deceased. He has been making negative confessions, especially a day to when he died. He told everyone that someone will die tomorrow within his family member.

“He was an apprentice generator repairer. We noticed the strange behaviour without foreknowledge that he was going to commit suicide.”

The mother to the deceased has been taken to a bone setter for treatment while the Adamawa State Police Command confirmed the incident saying investigation is ongoing.
