The Police in Abuja has arrested a 48-year-old man, Jacob Elegbede who attempted to commit suicide.
Elegbede who worked as a driver with a construction company in Abuja attempted to hang himself behind a primary school in Zanda when neighbours alerted the police.
The father of one, a native of Badagry in Lagos state has already written a suicide note where he begged his family, neighbours and creditors whom he owed several amounts to forgive him.
According to Punch , Elegbede said he had a spiritual problem. He said he suffered from insomnia and had strange dreams in which he had sexual intercourse with animals. He also said that he could not remember writing the suicide note found in his room because he had no pen or paper.
His words, “I also started having strange dreams in which I find myself having intercourse with strange women and even animals.
“I worship at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle church in Abuja, but I couldn’t go for prayers or deliverance because I work from Monday to Sunday and there was no time for any other thing. I believe my problem is spiritual because I can’t even explain how I found myself on the tree with a rope to hang myself.”
“I strongly believe some spiritual forces were behind my problem because while I was in the cell last Saturday, I had a wet dream in which a dog was licking my private parts,” he said.
The FCT Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Mustafa, who confirmed the incident, said Elegbede would be arraigned in court after investigation because it is a crime to attempt to commit suicide in Nigeria.
