RESIDENTS of No. 27B Enweonwu Street, Inland Town area of Onitsha, the commercial city of Anambra state, were yesterday jolted by the discovery of a hanging corpse of a 22-year-old man who committed suicide the previous night inside his own room apartment.
According to the source, the deceased who was identified as Peter Udekwe, a painter, was residing in that rented room apartment until the previous night when he hung himself inside his room without anyone knowing.
