A 42-year-old native doctor in the Mbakuha council ward of Ushongo Local Government Area of Benue State has committed suicide by hanging.
Terhemen Iorbee was earlier declared missing before his body was later found hanging on a tree at the weekend.
Locals in the area said that the deceased had manifested strange behaviours in recent times.
“There is nothing to show the cause of his suicide except the strange behaviours he was displaying a few weeks ago.
“He was a native doctor and married to three wives and had four children,” one of the locals said.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Catherine Anene, confirmed the hanging of the native doctor.
