A close friend of the deceased said the mother, who was shocked by the incident, raised the alarm and Aboh was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
It was gathered that the deceased did not leave behind a suicide note or told any of his friends about his plan to commit suicide. However, friends and family members have taken to social media to pen tributes to him.
One of his friends, AirsTee Martins, wrote, “Sweet heart, you should have spoken to someone. How could you have thought for a moment that this is the best way. Please, let one try to speak if he is going through a rough time.
“Even if we are far apart, we still connect one way or the other. So, please, no one should feel intimidated with what the other might have achieved. This social media; people develop low self-esteem, get depressed and feel like they are not enough.
“But it should not be so. Let’s try to stay strong because when there is life, there is hope. RIP Ogbeche.”
