After his lover married another guy, a 42-year-old man named Ibrahim Adamu Mohd committed himself by hanging at Kanti quarters in Kazaure Local Government Area of Jigawa State.
Residents of Kanti reported finding the man with a rope around his neck dangling from a tree when they awoke on Sunday, June 12.
DSP Lawan Shiisu Adam, a spokesman for the Jigawa State Police Command, confirmed the occurrence on Monday, saying the dead hails from Gayawa village in Kano State’s Ungogo LGA.
Mr. Ibrahim, he added, committed suicide by hanging himself in an unfinished building along Daura Road, adjacent to the Baushe filling station in Kazaure town.
A wedding invitation card and two SIM cards were discovered in the deceased’s possession, according to the PPRO.
According to a police spokesperson speaking to Premium Times, the invitation card is the girlfriend’s.
According to him, the man’s family acknowledged that the man committed himself because he was sad after his fiancée married another man.
According to Adam, the deceased traveled from Kano to commit suicide in the region, which is why his body was not instantly identified by residents who saw it dangling from a tree.
The deceased’s body has been placed in a morgue in the Kazaure council region.
