September 21, 2016 – JSS 1 Student, 12-Year-Old Boy Commits Suicide At Uncle’s House In Warri

A JSS 1 student has reportedly committed suicide at Ugbuwangue area of Warri metropolis in Delta State.

The boy, identified simply as 12-year-old Godwin, was said to be living with his paternal Uncle, Mr. Okotie- Eboh, prior to the incident last Saturday.

It was learnt that the victim was found dead inside his room by the housemaid.

The maid also discovered the rope which Godwin used to hang his neck attached to a window protector. A witness said the maid discovered the body when one of their neighbours told her after she returned from an errand that Godwin unusually refused to answer his calls to help him with the washing of his car.

“While looking for Godwin to convey the neighbour’s message to him that the maid saw his body, with his tongue and mouth widely opened,” the witness said.

It was also learnt that the maid screamed which attracted the neighbours who called Okotie- Eboh and his wife.

Okotie-Eboh, a source said, called his wife’s younger sister’s husband to drive him to the police station to make a report.

  1. Not again this suicide issue is getting out of hand,please God help nigeria will really need ur divine intervention.

  2. This is complicated. what possibly could a twelve year old boy be going through that would make him commit suicide? With the above pix, this boy looks promising and full of life. its a pity, May God comfort the family and may his soul rip.

  3. Fine boy, what really hurt you that you have to kill yourself? why could’n tell some elderly people or talk to your mother about it. Just 12 and die in cool blood, what a pain, just imagine the suffering involve in bringing up a child. nothing get at the end but hear death.

  4. This story is very very complicated and incomplete. The Uncle, wife, neighbour, house help and everyone around there should be thoroughly investigated. The Uncle has a big questions to answer. A handsome boy like this cannot just take his life as long as he isn’t insane…
    RIP to the victim. Only God will deliver Nigeria from all this miseries one day..

    And So… Let’s keep praying kool… While…
