In Ugbuwangue area in Warri, Delta State a young boy of about 12 years has allegedly committed suicide. The boy identified as Godwin was discovered by the housemaid inside his room.
The incident happened over the weekend and he(Godwin) lived with his paternal uncle prior to his death.
He was discovered after a neighbour had told the housemaid that Godwin failed to answer him when he asked him to help wash his car. In an attempt to convey the neighbor’s message, the housemaid discovered his lifeless body dangling on a rope.
Sources said the Cummunity elders brought masquerades to cut off the rope as such suicide act is a taboo in the community.
Godwin’s uncle, Mr. Okotie-Eboh and his family have been in shock over this bizarre incident. The Police have since stepped in and ordered that the body be deposited in the mortuary.
Only God knows what must have propelled him to commit this act!
