A 23-year-old man has committed suicide by hanging after he beat his mother to coma in Adamawa State.
Punch reports that the incident happened in a community in Yola, the capital of Adamawa State, when family members were shocked to find the body of Fidelis dangling from a rope in his room shortly after battering his mother.
It was gathered that the deceased stormed into his room after his siblings got angry with him for beating their mother and threatened to relocate her from the house.
In anger, Fidelis reportedly rushed to his room and locked the door. He was said to have remained in the room for a long time and when the concerned family members forced the door open after several knocks, they found his lifeless body dangling from the roof.
Neighbours who spoke on the incident described the deceased as an alcoholic who fought almost everybody on the day he committed suicide.
"He wounded his mother by dislocating her left hand," a neighbour said.
One of his uncles, Ali Hassan, said the deceased had been behaving strangely and passing death threats to his family members before the incident.
