Police to charge man who climbed Abuja mast for suicide

The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has said it could charge the man who climbed a broadcast mast in Abuja on Monday to court.

The spokesperson of the FCT Police Command, SP Josephine Adeh, made this known in a statement on Tuesday.

“We have sent Shuaibu Yushau, the man who climbed a broadcast mast yesterday to the Social Development Secretariat for mental evaluation,” Adeh said.

“If found mentally stable after the test, he will be charged to court for attempted suicide, disturbance of public peace and incitement.”

According to Adeh, the offences the man who climbed the mast committed are contrary to sections 231,111 and 114 of the Penal Code Act.

Police arrested Yushau following a distress call from concerned citizens about a young man who climbed a very high mast with a placard at ASO Radio in Katampe at about 09:10 a.m.

Adeh in a statement on Monday said the operatives of the FCT Police Command swiftly mobilized to the location.

“With much professional persuasions from the police operatives, the man later identified as Shuaibu Yushau was prevented from taking his own life,” she said.

“He claimed to have been observing the mast for about a week before deciding to climb it. Suspect is presently in police custody and in a stable condition.”
