Man Commits Suicide On Bayelsa Flyover

A yet-to-be-identified man has reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself at the flyover near the NNPC filling station on the Sanni Abacha Expressway in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

Punch Metro gathered that passersby found the victim’s corpse dangling on the rail of the flyover on Sunday.

While some residents believed that the deceased was insane, others suggested that he committed suicide because he was frustrated about life.

A resident, Mercy Didi, said until the victim’s death, he was usually seen at the Swali Market in the area.

“But I don’t know if he is mad or not. But what I know is that, when I see him, I don’t see him as a mad person,” Didi said.

Another resident, Luke Armstrong, said, “Maybe frustration made him hang himself. Life is hard now, even in this state, things are hard, and everybody has been managing.

But situation should not make you kill yourself. This man is not a mad man; it was frustration that made him kill himself.”
