Okema said the deceased allegedly told some of his relatives including his father yesterday that he was fed up of some people he believes were intending to arrest him.

He said the deceased was found hanging in the house by his daughter who alerted the community.

Okema said the crime scene was visited by detectives and the district scene of crime officer, statements were recorded from close family members and the body was handed over to relatives for burial.

He said this is the third suicide incident in a space of one week in Apac district. He appealed to the community members to use amicable means to resolve their grievances as opposed to suicide.
