A native doctor in Abia state, known as Onyeonoziri Friday, has reportedly committed suicide in front of his house in Ukpakiri village in Amaise Autonomous Community in Obingwa Abia State Local Government Region, leaving behind a pregnant wife and a son.
State Police Commissioner Ene Okon, who announced Onyeonoziri’s death to newsmen, said the native doctor hanged himself in front of his temple, which is situated at the back of his building. He was reported to have been dealing with a number of illnesses and to have been discouraged and distressed after many attempts to be cured by numerous sacrifices appeared to be abortive.
The local source who gave her name as Ogadinma Nwachukwu told The Naton that they woke up on Sunday morning to call for support from his house.
”It was this morning that we started hearing cries from his house and when we all gathered, we discovered that our brother, whom we all sat yesterday with is gone.
When we asked the wife, she said that the husband told her that he was going to pass the night at Ntighauzor. After that, she went inside the house while the husband told her that he wants to leave his machine behind the house. According to her, she came out in the morning, only to see the corpse of the husband dangling on a tree behind their house.” Ogadinma said
