A 75-year old man has committed suicide in Anambra State.

Charles Okafor, a father of 10 children, was said to have used a wrapper to hang himself on the roof of his bedroom on Monday.

It was gathered that  the deceased had earlier chatted with the wife before she left their house in Akitinyi village, Urum, in Awka North Local government area of the state.

The wife was still away when she was called on the phone to be informed of the death of her husband.

A member of the family, Chimezie Udekwe, described the deceased action as mysterious and painful.

He, however, hinted that efforts were still on to unravel the cause of his actions.

“One of my uncles came to my house to inform me that one of our brothers, Ozo Ogbukiyi committed suicide and I came here to see that what I was told is true.

“It is really painful. It is quite mysterious and unbearable to us. Everybody is crying over the matter and we are still trying to find out what could have led to this,” he said.
