Residents of Aniebo Quarters in Gadumo area of Lokoja where the family resides were thrown into mourning following the news of the suicide by the 12-year-old. 

The deceased reportedly poisoned himself in their home by taking sniper, an insecticide.

It was gathered that the elder sister had placed punished him for some misdemeanor shortly after they returned from church, which the deceased bluntly refused to serve.
