For reasons yet unknown, a woman whose name is identified as Dinatu Gad has reportedly killed herself in Plateau, Jos.
In the report which was confirmed to newsmen by a local source, Dinatu who is a resident of the ECWA staff community of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State sets herself ablaze on reasons known only to her.
Giving further details about the incident, he said, “I was outside the house when I saw a huge fire behind the compound and thought someone was burning trash.”
“Then I heard someone scream once and said ‘I am dying’, and I quickly went behind to inquire what was going on and discovered someone was burning in the fire. Immediately, we brought water and poured it on her, but it was already too late, she was badly burnt all over, but she was still alive,” he said.
He added saying, “Only God knows why she committed the act because we all saw her going about doing her normal duties during the day.”
No police report, however, is received yet at the time the report was given.
