Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has arrested one Shuaibu Alhaji Yushau for attempted suicide after he climbed Aso Radio broadcast mast, threatening to kill himself if specific demands are not met by the federal government.

Earlier yesterday morning, Yushau climbed the very high mast with a placard that read, “ It is long enough.”

His placard also stated that “it is long enough for citizens to continue suffering from hunger” and “long enough for the government to stand while Boko Haram and bandits continue to kill people daily.”


FCT police spokesperson, SP Josephine Adeh, while confirming the arrest, said, “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, the operatives of the FCT Police Command swiftly mobilised to the location.

“With much professional persuasion from the police operatives, the man, later identified as Shuaibu Alhaji Yushau, was prevented from taking his own life.


“ He claimed to have been observing the mast for about a week before deciding to climb it. The suspect is at present in police custody and in stable condition. Further development will be communicated in due course.”
