A man identified as Shuaibu Yusuf, from Borno State, on Monday, climbed a radio mast in an attempt to commit suicide.

Shuaibu vowed to sacrifice his life for the nation’s pressing issues, while pleading for fellow Nigerians to join his cause, emphasizing his readiness to sacrifice his life for what he called critical issues.

His demands include the restoration of fuel subsidies and declaration of a state of emergency on insecurity, and the government to take immediate action in Zamfara, Sokoto, Kebbi, Katsina, Niger, and Borno to combat terrorism and restore peace.

The man also demanded opening of borders for food importation to tackle the food shortage crisis, and the government should address the issue of out-of-school children.

Fire Service operatives, National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, and FCT officials were present to intervene.

According to the report, the man climbed the mast allegedly belonging to Aso radio after leaving a note detailing his intention.

It was reported that the nation has seen an upsurge in suicide cases recently.
