A mother of nine children, Maimuna, has reportedly committed suicide in Sajeri, Gomari ward of Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.

An eye witness Baa Modu confirmed that the incident happened around 6:00 pm on Saturday. He said the deceased children rushed out to inform them that their mother hanged herself.

“When we entered, her first son managed to cut the rope and her lifeless body was on the floor. And beside her was her 4-month-old baby, ” Modu said.

He said there was no suicide note left by the deceased and the children said they had no prior knowledge of her intention.

However, another witness, who’s close to the family told our correspondent that she started acting strangely after her family moved into a house she didn’t like.

“One of her children said the mother was opposed to their relocation to the house after being dislodged from their former house in Bulunkutu Kasuwa.

“In protest, the deceased angrily packed to her parent’s house, but was brought back yesterday, not knowing that she had planned to commit suicide this evening” he added.

At the time of compiling this report, efforts to reach the Police for comment weren’t possible as the Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Shatambaya, neither picked up calls nor responded to messages.
