Tragedy struck in Yola, the capital of Adamawa State last week when a 23-year old man, Fidelis Musa, committed suicide after an argument with his mother.
Musa’s lifeless body was found dangling in his room in Jimeta, Yola after a misunderstanding with his mother, which left her with a sprained wrist.

She said it was the first time the deceased beat his mother, adding that his misconduct may not be unconnected to substance abuse. Read more
