The body of a 40 years old woman one Nkemjika Oyibe has been found hanging on a tree in Onyemem forest in Ishinkwo Abaomege community in Onicha local government area.
Spokesman of the Police in the state, ASP Loveth Odah confirmed the incident to our reporter.
She said the case had been reported to the Command for further investigation.
Odaa said a hunter first discovered the lifeless body of the deceased and reported to community leaders who later went to the forest with the elder brother of the deceased, Peter Onyibe to see the corpse.
“But I wonder why a person should commit suicide and the family did not suspect any foul play; unless the family knew that their sister was having problem and as a result of that, they were suspecting she would commit suicide.
“They should have also been eager to know what led to her committing suicide. There is a saying that life begins at 40, so someone taking her life at 40 sounds strange”, she said.
The spokesman of the command further explained that the corpse has been released to the family for burial since no suspect had been arrested in connection with the incident.
In a telephone interview the Town Union President said the family did not suspect any person in connection with the death of the deceased.
He added that the lady hung herself and had made similar attempts to commit suicide in the past by taking drugs but she survived it.
According to him, she had a mental problem and had disappeared on December 25, 2017 from public domain.
The President also told The Nation that after several efforts in search of deceased, the family gave up the search only to be alerted by a hunter who went to check on his trap that the deceased corpse was dangling on a tree in the forest. The Nation
