Sad! Frustrated unemployed man found hanging on tree in Anambra

A 22-year-old man, Chika Alex-Chukwuezie committed suicide today April 2nd in Ubaekwem community in Ihiala Local government area of Anambra state.

The deceased who is said to be an active youth in the Umuezekwe political ward of Ihiala LGA, was found in the early hours of yesterday dangling from a mango tree.

The reason for committing suicide is yet unknown. A family member who preferred anonymity 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.”
