A man has died after hanging himself from the flyover near the NNPC gas station on the Sanni Abacha highway in Yenagoa, the capital of Bayelsa State, Nigeria.
The victim’s corpse was found by passers-by dangling on the rail of the flyover.
While some residents believed that the deceased was insane, others suggested that he committed suicide because he was frustrated about life.
A resident, said until the victim’s death, he was usually seen at the Swali Market in the area.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the incident.
“We have not been able to identify him since the development came up. But the corpse was removed from the scene by the police and deposited at the Federal Medical Centre mortuary. Nobody has come forward to identify him,” he said.
