by on May 10, 2016

The police in Imo on Tuesday rescued a female staff of the Alvan Ikoku Federal College of Education, Owerri, from committing suicide.

A witness told NAN that the woman who is in her early 40s, climbed a water tank stanchion, about the height of a three-storey building, from where she threatened to jump down.

The witness said the woman was shouting at the top of the  stanchion before people in the neighbourhood noticed her.

He said the neighbours alerted two policemen who climbed the facility and convinced the woman to come down.

Andrew Enwerem,  public relations officer of the Imo police command, confirmed the incident.
