Construction worker , Emmanuel commits suicide in Imo reports that residents of World Bank housing in Owerri, Imo State were yesterday jolted by a construction worker, Emmanuel who committed suicide minutes after exchanging pleasantries with fellow workers.
Emmanuel in his late twenties was a labourer at a two storey building still under construction on the popular World Bank road, about four buildings away from Ideal Hotel and Suites.
Emma hailed from Mbaise extraction of Imo State and was contracted from Lagos to partake in the construction work before his death.
Emma who specialized in iron-bending was cohabiting with other fellow workers in the same building.
Workers who pleaded anonymity said he went to watch the Chelsea/Man United football match on Sunday evening and still exchanged pleasantries with people on Monday morning only for them to discover his dangling body minutes later.
Dressed in blue jeans and a red T-shirt, Emma dangled on a twine in one of the rooms under construction on the second floor until operatives of the Nigerian Police Force arrived to evacuate his remains.
Emma who was tall, dark, and well built  did not leave a suicide note or give any inclination of his sinister act.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Imo State, Andrew Enwerem, a Superintendent of Police confirmed the incident adding that the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Chris Ezike has ordered a full scale investigation to unravel the mystery.
Enwerem said "we received information that one Emma is said to have hanged himself and we quickly rushed to the scene, to avoid any breakdown of law and order. We do not have his other details yet but all that will be ascertained in the course of investigations".
The construction site was besieged by sympathisers who stood in groups discussing the incident, even as some people said the shops though still under construction have all been paid for by would-be tenants.
