Suicidal Man Climbs Telecoms Mast in Abuja, Threatening to Jump

  Suicidal man climbs mast in Abuja
                    Rescue workers trying to get the man to come down           After he climbs down from the mast

A suicidal man today climbed a telecoms mast beside the Federal High Court in Abuja threatening to jump down and kill himself, just a few minutes after lodging a complaint and submitting a document at the court.

The man, Mallam Inuwa Musa Tawakalitu, climbed the mast around 12 noon and threw a note down. In the note, he wrote that he climbed the mast because he wanted people to intervene in a dispute between him and former vice president - Atiku Abubakar, who he claimed owed him money. 

He said he wasn't going to come down until the IG of police himself showed up, but he was eventually persuaded to come down by staff of the National Emergency Management Agency, fire fighters and the police. I hear he was taken into custody after he came down.

Answer to the question, "Why should the man be taken into custody?" For the same reason why euthanasia is under question... taking ones life is illegal in most countries

Anonymous said...

I think the man should be listened to..he may have a case and should not be written off.His attention-seeking behaviour could be due to frustration or mental illness, either way, am sure he never meant to die.

there are so many things involved (1) he can be a boko haram sect member which demand to coagulate very important personalities b4 disposing the bomb. (2) he is an african, probably he want to gain popularity in the country. (3) atiku abubarka may or may not be oweing the poor man money.

I wonder why he was taken into custody. Nigeria is a place where the poor never get heard except they pull a stunt like this guy. I really don't blame him.

But Linda how much Atiku owe the mallam? Lmao

The IG should ask Atiku and the man the kinda business that transpired between the two of them. The guy may have been a furstrated Boko haram member who was denied is dues after years of merritorious bombings, sorry i mean services. Lol

Person wey wan die no dey see road write and trowey note. D man is mentally ill I guess.

I no blame the man. At my previous job (immigration hq), some few yrs ago,some contractors who executed contracts for the Service were not paid and many of them after spending their money in the hopes of getting paid aftrward, were not. And so, it was wahala and the only way they thought they could get their money was to come and stage war at the office. I believe the man jor. He just doesnt have anyone to fight his cos like those contractors who didnt have anyone to go to for favors.

Monblaze said...

Awww, poor guy, funny story tho.
To those asking why he was taken into custody, attempted suicide is a crime according to the constitution.
To those saying he may have a valid story, true but he needs to prove it, he may also be mentally unstable.

I can't say I blame him for the drastic action he took- justice moves too slow for the ordinary man in Nigeria!

I feel his pain but LIB n oda gossip sites is as far as his plight will get.... Hope da popo wont kill him in da end

You always take a suicide attempt victim into custody to give them a psych evaluation and put them on 72hr suicide watch in a psych ward, are any of y'all educated atall, I guess it would have seemed normal to let him drive home yea

Anonymous said...

for those asking why he was taken into custody, attempted suicide is a crime under our laws.

Attemptes suicide is an offence o, liable 2 1yr imprisonment under d criminal code of Nigeria, dts y he waz taken in2 custody... 4 those who asked

Olu said...

Naija people fall my hand. A man being suicidal is not funny any way you look at it. He is most likely depressed or mentally ill. With the rates Nigerians are committing suicide, you guys can still laugh about it.

I hope no one close to you commits suicide and you will realize what a terrible thing this is and not something to be laughed at.

And please don't tell me people don't commit suicide in Nigeria, its just covered up and the family said died after a brief illness.

If not custody, where should they take him to for further questioning? They should take his statement inside Aso Rock abi? ITK...kmt

Cynthia said...

Eeeyaaahhhh, poor man, i guess ne couldnt face Atiku alone or was probably threatened or was tired of drawing debt from rich Atiku.... Atiku should be ashamed of himself, this is a disgrace on huis part. The man is indeed brave for taking this step as even Jonathan may intervene on his behalf.

atiku owes u money then u wanna jump from that high mast???? i keep wondering why we mix issues in this country1 this is a clear psychiatric case. wonder what the police will do for him in custody. nutter! he shlda jumped na, even mad man know say death no sweet!

sakara said...

Atiku need to pay this poor man and any other poor person he is owing who may not have this type of opportunity to expose him and i'll like to know what business they had together - hope this man dd not recruit boko haram bombers for him and he dd not fulfil his part of d deal, Atiku oya speakkkkkkkkkkk

Eit Neves said...

In a sane system. The ideal thing's to persuade him to come down and hear him out.

Eit Neves said...

Taking people into custody doesn't mean they're going to be harmed. He needs to be "debriefed".

Sufosa said...

I watched this on Channels TV and i couldnt stop laughing. Its very sad to think that he felt this was the only way to get publicity on his matter. Atiku abeg if you dey owe this underdog money true true.....plsssssssssss PAY UP.....lol

#Correction# Taking his life isn't a crime cos who u go prosecute? Its the "attempt" that's an offence.

God bless you Anon10.44. What else can the ordinary man do? The court wont help him. He cant get close to the onigbese. I guess this is the only way he knows by which he can gain attention. I can feel his pain
