Graduate commits suicide in Imo

A 30-year-old graduate of the Federal Polytechnic Nekede in Imo state, Nerus Elemamba, has committed suicide.

His body was found dangling in his room on Monday evening in his village in Umuohii, Oboama community in the Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State.

This was after he had participated in the day’s village manual labour earlier carried out by his peers.

A source said the deceased, who studied Architecture in school, didn’t show any signs of depression.

The source said, “The young man, Nerus, is from Umuohii Village in Oboama Ezinihitte Mbaise Imo State. He took his own life yesterday evening (Monday).

“The reason for his action is unknown to anybody.

“He is a graduate of Architecture from the Federal Polytechnic in Nekede. Until yesterday morning (Monday), he was very healthy and participated in the village youth manual labour.

“Later that same Monday evening, his body was found hanging in his bedroom.”

Another source disclosed that the deceased didn’t leave any suicide notes.

The source said, “Nerus Chinaechenwa Elemamba, the second son of late Mr Cajethan Elemamba, was yesterday evening found dead, having hanged himself in his own room.

“Nerus participated in the youth manual labor work yesterday morning (Monday) looking very healthy before the unfortunate scenario occurred.”

The youth leader of the village, Iheukwumere Ibeh, who spoke to our correspondent in a telephone conversation on Tuesday morning, said that the villagers were shocked by the development.

He revealed that the victim had been buried after the necessary cultural rituals had been successfully carried out.

The youth leader said, “This is shocking. Nobody knows the reason for his action. He didn’t leave any note behind. He was not married. He is between 30 and 31 years of age. He was not taken to a mortuary. He is being buried as we speak. This is after the required cultural rituals to appease the land have been carried out.”
