Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

A 13-year-old boy has allegedly committed suicide in Ntantalla, Cameroon, over an accusation of stealing a mobile phone.

Tata Benard Gibip, a Cameroonian journalist, said the child had previously attempted to kill himself on Saturday over the unproven charge, but was restrained.

Determined, the boy, on Sunday morning of May 7, 2023, crept out of the home and hanged himself on a tree.

“A 13-year-old boy has committed suicide by hanging in Ntantalla, Ndu this Sunday May 7.

“Sources say the tragedy began on Saturday with an allegation that he stole a phone from a passenger he transported on a motorcycle, allegation to which he refuted.

“He attempted stabbing himself but was cautioned out of it. It is today (Sunday) morning that he decided to take his life by hanging.

“His lifeless body was discovered hanging from a tree after his absence was noticed.

“Considering his tender age, many are wondering whether the allegation could actually push him to take his life.

However, answers unfortunately cannot be gotten as the concerned is no more,” he wrote.
