45-year-old woman identified as Ifeoma Otubo was found hanging from a mango tree in Ezza North local government Area of Ebonyi State.
The deceased who is a mother of five committed suicide behind her house in the early hours of Sunday, December 20.
Burdened by hardship, it was learnt that the deceased attempted to commit suicide in 2014 but was rescued.
Confirming the incident, the deceased’s brother, Christopher Oyibo, said before she took the drastic action, she had lamented that she was finding it difficult to take care of her children.
A family source Reveal that the deceased and family were displaced due to the Ezza/Eziulo lingering communal crisis in Ishielu local government area of the state.
The source said:
“She was among the people displaced by Ezza/Eziulo war. She returned to her father’s house having been displaced by the communal war together with the husband and children but since that time, life has not been easy for the family. About five years ago she attempted suicide but was stopped by people who saw her.”
“But this time around, the husband said he entered his room because they were given two rooms by the wife’s family, so he entered his room while she the deceased entered into her room with the children. Very early in the morning when the children woke up to ease themselves they saw their mother hanging on the mango tree behind their house.
“It was said that the diseased during her first suicide attempt gave hardship as reason because before the war they were living well and had a personal business shop she was managing but when they relocated to the fathers’ house at Umuoghara they became small farmers and life became hard.”
The sad incident was also confirmed by the police in Ebonyi through it’s state command spokesperson, Loveth Odah.
