According to messages shared by social media users, the young man, named Mukoro Ovie Rex, used a broken bottle to stab himself multiple times and refused to be stopped by concerned observers. As people tried to hold him to prevent him inflicting further injuries on
himself, he only intensified his efforts. A policeman eventually arrived at the scene and as soon as he saw the officer, he used the sharp edge of the broken bottle to slash his throat.Photos shared on social media show the young man naked and covered in blood. In one photo, he is seen standing, unconcerned about the amount of blood he was losing.
The reason for his action is still a mystery but there are many theories.

Others have said that his companion should be arrested and questioned.
