A 36-year-old man in Yei River County has committed suicide allegedly due to stress, Police authority confirmed.

The incident that happened in Atende residential area of Gimunu Boma has left the community puzzled, as they struggle to understand the reason behind his death.

According to the police statement, the parents of the deceased have confirmed that he was a good farmer with one wife, who is currently not living with him.

However, police investigation revealed that the man had been heavily addicted to alcohol, and the stress he was facing might have driven him to take his own life by hanging himself with a rope until his tongue protruded from his mouth.

Maj. Hussein Daud Jano, the police inspector of Yei River County, stated that suicide is not a good solution, especially during these challenging times.

He advised citizens to avoid such drastic actions, as life is precious, and there are always better ways to cope with difficulties.

The police investigation team has opened a case against the deceased, and they will conduct a full investigation to determine the exact reason for his death.

This tragic incident highlights the growing challenges faced by young people in South Sudan, where high commodity prices, lack of employment, and ongoing conflicts have created a difficult environment.

Many citizens are struggling to access basic necessities such as food, education, and healthcare, leading some to turn to alternative means of coping, which can have devastating consequences.

The police and the community have a responsibility to address these issues and provide support and resources to those in need, to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
