Twelve year-old boy commits suicide in Imo state

A 12-year-old Primary 6 pupil identified as Karachi Odurukwe has been confirmed dead after allegedly hanging himself with a rope on an Indian bamboo tree.
It was further learnt that the sad incident took place at Agboala Ishiala Umudi autonomous community in Nkwerre council area of Imo State.
The victim and his 2 younger siblings were living with their aunt in the village at the time of the incident. It was gathered that he continuously complained of how the “world has become boring to him” after his parents’ death.
The deceased who led his 2 siblings and other kids to a nearby stream to fetch water on Wednesday 5th of February 2020, reportedly used a stick to check the depth of the stream before bringing out a rope he used in hanging himself on a nearby bamboo tree.
A source told The Nation;
“Having not been satisfied with the shallow dept of the water, the deceased was said to have taken a rope and tied it up to a bamboo tree. But his first and second attempts to kill himself failed while the other kids were begging him to stop.
“It was the third attempt that on a stronger Indian bamboo tree that the rope strangled him to death.
“That action jolted the other kids, who ran back to the village to report the incident to the family and villagers elders”.
Four batteries were found at the scene of the incident and it is speculated that he intended to drink it as poison before opting to hang himself.
The police were called in and they helped in depositing the corpse of the little boy in the morgue.
