A man in the South-south part of Nigeria has committed suicide after reportedly leaving a note for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Residents of Mbiabong Itam in Itu Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State woke up to a shocking sight of a 50-year-old man identified as Chief Ekanem Edet dangling on a suspended robe from the roof of his house.
It was learned that Ekanem Edet, former Secretary of the Mbiabong Village Council, popularly called ‘Jolly Boy’, had been dead several hours earlier. Edets’s wife and two sons, it was learned, had gone out early in the morning unaware that his remains hung loosely from the roof of his room.
The details of his demise are still sketchy but according to Vanguard, the man assumed to have died out of frustration penned a short note for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The provisions of the suicide letter are yet to be fully made public.
The current economic recession under the nose of the All Progressives Congress-led administration has been accused of increasing the level of frustration of Nigerians who have been struck by hunger.
