A 19-year-old man in Nigeria’s Anambra state has hanged himself after one of his relations denied him of banana.
Prince Chigozie reportedly committed suicide because a family member won’t give him banana for a meal, Punch reports.
The young man was found hanging in his room in Idemili North Local Government Area of the state.
A source told Punch that Chigozie was found hanging in his room by his father.
“Though no suicide note was found around him about his death; we suspect he killed himself because he was denied of some bananas by one of his relations, whom, I wouldn’t want to mention here,” the source said.
The source said he saw the deceased “fuming in the morning hours. When I approached him, he said a relation of his had been denying him many things because of his unemployed state.
I told him to take it easy, but he kept fuming and threatening. Shortly after that, I heard that he had committed suicide.”
Police in the state have confirmed the incident. They say the case is being investigated to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the young man’s death.
