The Director of Information of Manyo County in Upper Nile State was found dead Wednesday morning in what the area commissioner said was a suicide.

Commissioner Peter Awon says a note was found with Sansalous Aban Othur, 55, stating why he decided to end his life.

“Actually, the late was suffering from epilepsy before he died. He left a message, and he mentioned that he was fade-up with his illness, and he could handle this anymore.”

Awon told Eye Radio, the late in a message said, he was epileptic and sought treatment for the illness in Juba and in Khartoum, Sudan.

“He went for treatment in Rabak, Khartoum, and Juba and all this had no change.”

“He felt a severe fever all night which is the reason for hanging himself. This is what he wrote in his message.”

But his condition became worst recently as he continued to suffer from severer fever during night hours.
Commissioner Awon narrated the incident to Eye Radio this morning.
