12 Year-old Boy Commits Suicide Over Parent's Death In Imo

Until his death last Wednesday, he was a primary six pupil of Practicing School, Umudi.

The deceased committed suicide by hanging himself on a rope on an Indian bamboo tree.

The 12-year-old and his two younger siblings had lost parents and had been living with their mother’s sister in that village.

The boy had been complaining of how boring the world had been to him.

According to one of the villagers, the boy would “jokingly tell his mates that he wants to die and meet his mother in heaven”.

On that Wednesday, Kasarachi had led his two siblings and two other kids to a nearby stream to fetch water.

Kasarachi was said to have assisted the other children to fill their cans while he used a long stick to check the dept of the stream.

According to a source, Having not been satisfied with the shallow dept of the water, the deceased was said to have taken a rope and tied it up to a bamboo tree. But his first and second attempts to kill himself failed while the other kids were begging him to stop.

However, it was the third attempt that on a stronger Indian bamboo tree that the rope strangled him to death.
