A 13-Year-old boy has been confirmed dead on Friday morning after committing suicide by hanging in Ningi Local Government of Bauchi State.
WikkiTimes can report that Sadik Haruna, a resident of Unguwar Dadin Kowa in Ningi metropolis has reportedly hanged himself inside following a mild disagreement with his father.
Reports say the deceased father cautioned Sadik over his refusal to go to school.
His body was recovered inside his room and was immediately taken to the General hospital Ningi where he was confirmed dead.
The incident threw the residents of the area into panic and a state of mourning when the news of his suicide makes the rounds.
When WikkiTimes visited the late Sadik residence, sympathisers were seen trooping in and out of the house to console the parents who were yet to fully recover from the unfortunate death of their son.
The report of the suicide is coming just less than a year a soldier with the Nigerian Armour school in Bauchi was reported to have killed himself
In recent times, Nigeria has reported the highest number of depression cases in Africa; and like many developing countries, suicide in the country is grossly under-reported largely due to the non-existence of a vital statistics system.
