A 13-year-old boy has committed suicide after his mother allegedly rained abuses on him.

The teenager, identified as only Rokeeb, was found hanging from a tree last Monday, around 9 am, at 25 Ekimogun Street, Apelehin under, an uncompleted building located in Isokan community in Bariga area of Lagos.

According to Saturday Sun, neighbours said that Rokeeb could have sunk into depression after his mother launched a tirade at him in which, she allegedly told him to go hang himself if he liked.

On the sad day, the young boy was spotted doing the call to prayer in the local mosque situated at Kehinde lane, close to his house.

Reacting to the sad news, Rokeeb?s Quranic teacher known as Alfa Sambo, said the boy, after performing the religious assignment that morning continued reading the Quran in the Mosque but suddenly left when he saw his mother going out.

?He told Alfa that he wants to go and help his mother carry her load,? an eyewitness told Saturday Sun. ?Rokeeb?s mother sells noodles at a bus stop in Bariga. Few minutes after, we heard the mother shouting and abusing the boy, I was confused as to what could have gone wrong with Rokeeb and his mother. But I didn?t go out to confirm what the cause of the outburst was.?

Another neighbor who was the scene of occurrence said one of Rokeeb?s siblings told her that the deceased asked their mother for money, but she told him she did not have. Then Rokeeb started grumbling and complaining about life, saying that he was tired of living. That apparently annoyed the mother and made her reply in anger that if he was tired of life he should go and hang himself, the neighbor said

?We heard some residents shouting for help that Monday morning,? a resident who simply identified himself as Kunle, said, adding: ?we found Rokeeb hanging and struggling for breath. We took him down and rushed him to Gbagada General Hospital, but he died at the emergency section before medical help could get to him.?

According to Saturday Saturday Sun, Rokeeb?s mother is a single mother of three. Rokeeb was a product of her first marriage, which crashed. She remarried and had the last two children. That marriage also crashed, so, currently, she is not with any man, one said.

So sad to hear. We Mother's suppose to know how to treat our children because of tomorrow. Mother's please let's try and learn how to bless our children everyday of our life. They are our future hope, no matter what they did always caution them with love not with curse please. There are some mothers who are fond of cursing their husbands and others every time. Be warned. God bless

Understand your children also, build them up and support them, criticize them contructively, Children have the ability to do great things, when they know who to look up to.
