A 12-year-old Junior Secondary School (JSS) 1 student identified as Godwin, has reportedly committed suicide at Ugbuwangue area of Warri metropolis in Delta state by hanging himself in his room.
According to New Telegraph, the deceased who is said to be living with his paternal Uncle, Mr. Okotie- Eboh, was discovered dead inside his room by the housemaid. The maid also discovered the rope which Godwin used to hang his neck attached to the protector of a window.
According to an eye witness, the maid discovered Godwin’s body when one of their neighbours told her after she returned from an errand that Godwin had declined from answering his calls to help him with the washing of his car.
“While looking for Godwin to convey the neighbour’s message to him that the maid saw his body, with his tongue and mouth widely opened,” the witness said.
It was also gathered that the maid screamed which attracted the neighbours who called Okotie- Eboh and his wife.
Okotie-Eboh, a source said, called the husband to wife’s sister to drive him to the police station to file a report.
