A 22-year-old politician, Chika Alex-Chukwuezie, has committed suicide in Ubaekwem, Anambra state.

The body of the deceased was found hanging on a mango tree, this morning, at their family house.

Chukwuezie’s body has since been thrown into the thick forest, in accordance with Igbo traditional rites, and efforts are ongoing to bring in traditionalists who will cutoff the orange tree and sanctify the compound.
