A native doctor known as Onyeonoziri Friday has committed suicide in Ukpakiri village, Obingwa local government area of Abia State.
The man popularly known as “Nonoo” and said to be in his 30s committed the act on Saturday morning.

“The whole community gathered at their home that Saturday morning watching how he used his motorcycle to climb to the roof of his house to fix his neck on the rope.”
The native doctor who is said to be about three years into the profession is said to have a master who was immediately contacted before his body could be lowered and taken to the mortuary.
