According to reports, the individual is from Kaneshie.
The unidentified man was reportedly shouting to neighboring residents that he wanted to take his life.
“He came around screaming that he intends on killing himself”, a resident said.
“We sat him down and offered him water to drink. He claimed he had committed a crime he was unable to confess and was tired of life and the economy.
He confessed on wanting to end his life”.
“He instantly climbed up the high tension as we shouted on top of our lungs for him to lower himself but it fell on deaf ears” an eye witness said.
As fear and terror spread across the neighborhood, residents called the police.
Residents were heard yelling and pleading for him to descend.
He bent to give a last prayer before doing the unthinkable.
