An unidentified man in his early 30s, was on Tuesday found hanging on a tree in a forest at Achara Community, a boundary town in the Abakaliki Local Government Area of Ebonyi.


The body was found in a decomposing state, indicating that the man must have died sometime last week.

Residents of the had condemned the incident, describing it as an abomination.

They have since reported the matter to the police division in the area as the man could not be immediately identified.

When contacted, the Ebonyi State Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP. Sylvester Igbo, confirmed the incident.

He, however, said that the circumstance surrounding the death of the man had yet to be unravelled.

Igbo said that the police had begun investigations to determine both the identity and the remote cause of the death.

“This is a case of suicide. It is not a normal death. We are investigating the remote and immediate causes behind the death of the man.

“We have told the community leaders to spread information around to ascertain his true identify and place of origin

“So far, nobody has come up to claim ownership of the body while the Ebonyi State Environmental Protection Agency had been informed to remove the corpse as it was already decomposing.

“When it was reported, the police got to the scene and discovered that the victim carefully removed his clothes before hanging himself,’’ Igbo said.

Meanwhile, the Coordinator of the Abakaliki Development Centre, Mrs Franca Okpo, had condemned the act, wondering why such a young man should decide to terminate his own life.

She described the incident as a huge loss to the man’s community.

“When you look at the entire scenario, you will discover that it was a well arranged suicide mission put in place by the man,’’ she said.

The decomposing corpse of the victim was later deposited at the Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki.
