According to Standard Digital Media (SDE), a 21-year-old man disrupted prayers at the busy Majengo mosque in Nyeri County, Kenya after climbing atop its minaret threatening to commit suicide.
The man, identified as Hassan Hussein caused a three-hour standoff attracting hundreds of residents.
His mother, Hadija Wambui, broke into tears as the crowd pleaded with him to climb down from the over 20 feet tower.
Wambui said her son started showing signs of stress following the death of his younger brother late last year.
“His brother died after being hit by a billiard ball at a pool table centre in Nyeri town. He was preparing to sit his KCPE exams. The man who hit him was arrested and later set free,” Wambui who lives in King’ong’o Estate, explained.
Some of his neighbours reported having seen him on top of the minaret as early as 10am and said he looked disturbed.
“We saw him scaling the tower but did think he was up to something bad, only to realise later that he wanted to commit suicide,” John Maina, a neighbour told The Nairobian.
Efforts by police officers from Nyeri Police Station to convince Hussein to abandon his mission bore fruit and they forcefully tied his legs with a rope and with the help of the public brought him down using a ladder.
He was later bundled into a waiting police vehicle and taken to Central Police Station as a huge crowd which gathered pleaded with the police to be allowed to teach Hussein a ‘lesson’.
