A retired Captain in the Nigerian Army has committed suicide in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State.

The body of the man was found dangling from a mango tree outside his compound at 34, Edim Otop Street, Calabar.

The retired Army officer, identified as Friday William, hails from Mkpat Enin Local Government in neighbouring Akwa Ibom State but lived with his family in Calabar.

The decision of the deceased to take his life has left his neighbors and relatives shocked as he was said not to be desperate and was living in his own house, owned three cars while all his eight children are said to be doing well.

According to a neighbour, Abasi Imoh “We woke up in the morning to behold the body dangling on the mango tree outside the compound and we do not know what was responsible for his action.

“We gathered that Captain William had allegedly sent a text message to one of his sons who lives in Port Harcourt, at about 10pm, to condole with him over his own death and advised him to be strong to take care of his siblings.

“But the son did not see the message until he got a call the next morning that his father had committed suicide and I feel he had tied the rope ready for the act before he sent the text.

“He was not poor because he had three cars and had built a house in his village and was generally doing well; that is why we were surprised with his action,” the neighbour said.
