The PRO told Daily Trust that the deceased’s father was interrogated by the village head on whether the boy was into ”drugs or mentally ill.”

“The emir was worried about the incident and asked the district head whether the boy was into drug abuse. He also asked the father whether he had some mental problems or if they had grudges with someone, but the father said nothing was done to him. He also said he was not into drugs,” Faragai said.

He added that the emir directed district heads of the council to embark on intense prayers to ward off similar occurrences.
