JUBA – A man in South Sudan’s Western Equatoria state has committed suicide Sunday after a domestic dispute with his wife, police authorities in the state have said this afternoon.
Eye Radio, quoting a local police officer, reported that the incident took place yesterday afternoon while the deceased man’s wife was returning from a nearby borehole.
“This man got into an argument with his wife over domestic matters, so he went out and hanged himself,” 2nd Lt. Lickson Twolaba who identified the man as 28-year-old Gabriel Abdu Johnathan, said.
“He got angry without talking to anyone about the reason for the dispute and the investigation is still ongoing about the reason why he went to the river side and hanged himself,” he added.
Lickson Twolaba said there was no fight between him and wife.
“The wife was returning from fetching water when the argument happened. The investigation is still ongoing and we will inform you of the final result after the investigation is completed,’ he said.
