A boy has been arrested in Douala, Akwa, after announcing mother’s death.
The boy in his late twenties, is said to have alerted neighbours on Tuesday, telling them he came home and discovered her mother hanging from a rope.
His suicide claims were not believed by the neighbours who could not see any signs on the corpse. They immediately called the police.
“It was her last son that raised the alarm announcing the shocking discovery, reporting that her mother had committed suicide by hanging” a resident told reporters.
“We are surprised because she was neither sick nor had a visible problem that could push her to take her life.”
The boy is in police custody while investigations are being carried out.
