Reports reaching us at CHECKOUT MAGAZINE has it that an unidentified man was on the verge of commiting suicide after he was found climbing a telecommunication mast.
The said incident happened on Friday in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital in the north-eastern part of the country.
Eyewitnesses report that the man was seen approaching the mast with chains around his waist without knowing that he had the intention of climbing the mast.
Two men, Mohammed Aminu and Suleiman Musa told Channels Television, that they suddenly discovered that the man was already at the peak of the mast.
They added that he started shouting and throwing down papers with a short message entitled ‘To Whom It May Concern’.
We also gathered that the man, however, made a demand that he would only terminate the suicide mission if the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua, intervened in his case.
Meanwhile, security operatives have arrived at the scene in an attempt to bring the man down in the dark without any iota of light.
This strategy, according to the team, is to avoid suspicion by the victim and prevent him from jumping off the mast.
