On what could be termed as tragedy, residents of Ikot-Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State woke up to the news of the death of a young man Timothy Akan who apparently committed suicide by hanging on a palm tree.
What could have led the young man to take his life can’t be ascertained immediately as no note was left by him to know the reason. As at filing this report, the lifeless body of the young man was still handing on the tree along Stadium road Ikot-Abasi. Calls to the DPO to draft his men to the site has not been returned nor the FRSC Sector commander. However, only the Fire Service were willing to take down the body only if the Police gives the go ahead.
