OTJIWARONGO, 27 JUN (NAMPA) - A 40-year-old police officer allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself at Grootfontein on Wednesday.
Spokesperson of the Namibian Police Force in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha told Nampa in an interview on Thursday that the deceased has been identified as Abed Ipangelwa.
She said Ipangelwa allegedly had relationship problems with his girlfriend, with whom he has two children aged one and four.
“The deceased was found hanging from the roof of his bedroom at a family residence in the Blikkiesdorp informal settlement by family members at around 14h30 on Wednesday,” Mbeha said.
Ipangelwa left behind a suicide note and no foul play is suspected, but police investigations continue.
