Doctors always encourage HIV positive people that their status is not the end of their life, but for one woman, learning of her HIV positive status marked the end of the road for her as she went to the bush and took her own life in a tragic fashion.
The 46-year-old woman, identified as Celestina Mamah from Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu state went to a forest and stabbed herself to death after learning about her status.
Police investigation shows that the victim had left her home on May 28 at about 6pm and headed to a forest near Ogwu Rest House in Udenu Local Government Area of the state where she allegedly committed suicide.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) Enugu state police command, DSP Ebere Amaraizu confirmed that the woman allegedly tested positive to HIV after a test at a nearby hospital.
Her corpse was found the following day at about 11am.
