Pandemonium on Saturday struck the university community of Ekpoma in Edo State as a lifeless body of a middle-aged man was found dangling in his room.
The body of the deceased identified as Peter Uche, a butcher, was discovered by neighbours through the window of the apartment he was living.
A viral video of the lifeless body of the man when he was being taken to a hospital had since gone viral on the Internet.
A write-up attached to the video indicated that “Peter Uche allegedly hanged himself with a towel in his room in the early hours of today (Saturday).
“He was found dangling through his room’s window and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where he was confirmed dead. The reason behind his action remains unknown.”
When contacted on phone, Edo police command spokesman, ASP Chidi Nwabuzor, could however not confirmed the report, saying that he was yet to be briefed.
“I am not yet aware of the incident. I’ve not been briefed. Once I am briefed, I’ll get back to you,” Nwabuzor said.
