Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Loveth Odah said the case had been reported to the Command for further investigation.
According to her, the Town Union President of the community (names withheld) had reported that upon getting information from a hunter who discovered the lifeless body of the deceased, he later went to the forest with the elder brother of the deceased, Peter Onyibe to see the corpse for himself.
“But I wonder why a person should commit suicide and the family did not suspect any foul play; unless the family knew that their sister was having problem and as a result of that, they were suspecting she would committed suicide.
“They should have also been eager to know what led to her committing suicide. There is a saying that life begins at 40, so someone taking her life at 40 sounds strange.”
The mouth piece of the command further explained that the corpse has been released to the family for burial since no suspect had been arrested in connection with the incident.
