The Daily Times has reported that a 36-year-old man, Ekanem Aniefiok, was on Tuesday, September 4 arraigned before the Karu Magistrates’ Court for alleged attempt to commit suicide. They said the police was alerted by one Idika Uzoma that the accused had attempted suicide.
The prosecutor said Uzoma had discovered Aniefiok hanging in his room while his 20-month old daughter was holding a part of the rope that went through the ceiling.
Mohammed said that the accused was unconscious while the baby was crying, and that Uzoma raised alarm which attracted neighbours who rescued him.
The prosecution said that Aniefiok had confessed to committing the offence because he lost his job and that his wife had abandoned him.
So is the solution to the poor man’s problem charging him to court? Or have we run out of cases to be judged in court?
Naija, we hail una!
