A 42-year-old newspaper vendor simply known as Ameachi hung himself in his one-room apartment at Okpe road area, Sapele, Delta State.
His body was discovered Thursday morning but he was last seen on Monday.
A resident in the area, Mama Ngozi, gave an account of what happened on the day in question.
“We last saw him on Monday when he was leaving the house, nobody knew when he came back to the house.
We never knew he had hanged himself in his room. It was only this morning when we were inhaling some odour and people have been coming to ask of him that we suspected foul play.
“He is a very reserved person and hardly talk to anybody. You hardly find him with anybody, male or female.
‘’One of his colleagues hinted that he owed some money. He came on Monday and we told him to try and pay what he is owing and he left.
‘Later we went to look for him but we could not find him, only for us to hear that he has hanged himself, ” he said.
