A 20-Year Old Dancer Commits Suicide In His Father’s Compound In Nekede Owerri(Video)


A20-YEAR-OLD man residing in Umudibia Autonomous community in Owerri West Local Government Area, Imo State has allegedly committed suicide.

The development, The Nation gathered, has thrown the community into confusion.

Our correspondent learnt yesterday that the deceased, identified as Samson Chukwuocha, committed suicide in his late father’s uncompleted storey building on Wednesday, contrary to earlier reports that he was killed by an unidentified group suspected to be cultists.


Family members, however, could not comprehend how their son would commit suicide by hanging for three days without anybody being aware of it.

“We were shocked to see his lifeless body dangling on a rope for three days and no member of the family knew that the boy had died by suicide,” a relative who identified himself as Daniel told our correspondent.

A source close to the scene of the incident said: “A 20-year-old boy named Samson Chukwuocha, an indigene of Umuokomocha in Umudibia Autonomous Community in Owerri West Local Government today committed suicide by hanging himself in his family compound.”

A resident of the area said by the time the family became aware of the incident, the victim’s corpse had started decomposing before the Nekede Police Division was later called.

“There is tension in the area as it was alleged that the boy was killed by suspected hoodlums that engaged in cult activities,” the resident said.
However, another source said the deceased, who was a dancer at different night clubs in the state, was said to have had a misunderstanding with his girlfriend before he decided to take his life.

“We saw the girlfriend in our compound but we did not see when the girl left. We were later told that he had a quarrel with his girlfriend the day the girl came to see him, and committed suicide shortly after she left,” the source added.

A police officer from the Nekede Police Division, who preferred anonymity, confirmed the incident, saying that the police had commenced investigation.
