Police Arrest Man Who Attempted Suicide Over Insecurity, Others In Abuja 

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested Shuaibu Alhaji Yushau for attempted suicide after climbing the Aso Radio broadcast mast in Abuja, threatening to kill himself if certain demands were not met by the federal government.

Earlier on Monday morning, Yushau had claimed the very high mast with a placard, captioned “It Is Long Enough”.

His placard also stated that “it is long enough for citizens to continue suffering in hunger”, “Long enough for government to standby while Boko Haram and bandits continue to kill people on a daily basis.”

FCT police spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh, while confirming the arrest, said: “following a distress call from concerned citizens about a young man who climbed a very high mast with a placard at ASO Radio in Katampe at about 09:10am, the operatives of the FCT Police Command swiftly mobilized to the location.

“With much professional persuasions from the police operatives, the man later identified as Shuaibu Alhaji Yushau was prevented from taking his own life.

“He claimed to have been observing the mast for about a week before deciding to climb it. Suspect is presently in police custody and in a stable condition.

Further development will be communicated in due course.”
