Newsmen gathered that Omezi hung himself around 4pm with a rope suspended to the ceiling fan in his apartment located at No 7 Fred Ezika Street, Odume layout.

The body of the deceased was still dangling from where it was suspended when the Police, led by the DPO Isiowulu Division, arrived the scene.

Confirming the incident, the PPRO Anambra State Police Command, Haruna Mohammed, said the police detectives attached to Isiowulu Division visited the scene of the incident with a medical doctor, who certified the victim dead.
