- A man in Adamawa state has killed himself after he had a fight with his mother
- Over the past few months the rate at which people commit suicide in Nigeria has increased at an alarming rate

A 23-year-old man, Musa Fedelis, in Adamawa state has taken his own life after he had a fight with his mother on Tuesday, April 18.
NAIJ.com gathered that Fedelis had allegedly sprained his mother’s wrist and ankle following an argument they had.
A lady, Suzzy, who identified herself as a cousin to the deceased claimed his behaviour is a result of hard drugs addiction.
She expressed that he may have committed suicide because he was afraid that his mother might curse him after what he did to her.
Suzzy further added that this was the first time he laid his hands on his mother, adding that his misconduct may not be unconnected to substance abuse.
An eyewitness, Innocent Henry, said the man had attacked his mother, sprained her ankle and wrist, adding that the deceased was restless throughout the day.
Henry said: “The man was restless throughout that day; he fought everybody that came to their house. He wounded his mother by breaking her left hand.”
“Already, we have taken the woman to a native doctor for treatment,” he said.
An uncle to Fedelis, Ali Hassan, expressed that he had behaved strangely before his death.
Hassan said: “I am the uncle to the deceased; he has been making negative confessions especially a day to the ill-fated day. He told everyone that someone among his family members would die the next day.”
“He was a generator mechanic apprentice; we noticed the strange behavior without the premonition that he was going to commit suicide,” he said.
According to The Punch, the deceased’s lifeless body was found dangling in his room in Jimeta, Yola.
