A 26 years old driver has committed suicide in Dokie Quarter community, Sanniquellie, Nimba County.
Dokie Quartor is the home of the late Samuel Saye Dokie, who was abducted along with his wife by rebel General Benjiman Yeaten, and burnt to death in 2007 following the election of rebels NPFL leader, Charles Ghankay Taylor.
The late Dokie and Mr. Taylor were rebel allies, but subsequently fell apart prior to Taylor leaving from his rebel headquarters in Gbarna, Bong County to come to Monrovia and join a collective presidency with leaders of rival factions.
The late Paye Dahn, a driver of the Federation of Road Transport Union or FRTU branch in Sanniquellie, was over the weekend discovered hanging dead in his bedroom.
According to family members, the victim had attempted suicide on several occasions prior to the one that eventually led to his demise.
Speaking to The NewDawn Nimba County correspondent, a brother of the deceased, Ernest Gobah, narrated that his late brother used to drink excessive alcohol and was always advised by family members to stop, but their advice fell on deaf ears.
Gobah further narrated that prior to taking his own life, the late Paye Dahn, a father of three children, had complained that he was hit by some men in his eyes, and was told by his brothers to wait for the next day in order to take him to the G.W. Harley Hospital in Sanniquellie.
Some community residents also corroborated that the victim had on several times informed family members that he would one day kill himself, but for why? They did not explain until he was seen hanging in his bedroom thru the widow.
