The body of a middle aged man has been found hanging in front of a shop in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

The incident, which occurred in the early hours of Friday in the Umuagu area of Asaba, left many residents of the area in shock.


The residents told newsmen that the man, whose identity was unknown, was found hanging on the roof of a store on a road.

Some residents of the area, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said they do not know the man in the neighbourhood.
