Yenagoa, Nigeria – An unidentified young man has reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself to death at the flyover near the NNPC filling station on the Sani Abacha Expressway in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.
Report has it that the body of the man wearing a blue long-sleeves shirt on brown trousers was found dangling with the rope he allegedly used on the rail of the flyover by some passers-by on Sunday.
According to Daily Independent, some residents believed that the deceased, who did not leave any suicide notes around, might have taken his life on Saturday night.
While some also believed that he was insane, others suggested that he might have taken the option of suicide because of frustration.
