Police may charge man who tried to commit suicide in Abuja

Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police The command said it may press charges against Shuaibu Yushau, who climbed the mast in an attempt to commit suicide on Monday.

The command’s spokeswoman, Josephine Adeh, announced this in a post on X on Tuesday.

PREMIUM TIMES reported that police arrested Mr. Yushau on Monday after saving him from committing suicide due to the difficult economic situation in the country.

Ms Adeh said Mr Yushau had been transferred to the Secretariat of Social Development for psychiatric evaluation and if he was found to be mentally healthy or stable, he would be charged with attempted suicide.

“We have sent Shuaibu Yushau, the man who climbed the radio tower yesterday, to the Secretariat of Social Development for a mental evaluation. If he is found to be mentally stable after the test, he will be charged with attempted suicide, disturbing public order and incitement.

“These crimes are contrary to articles 231, 111 and 114 of the Penal Code.”
