Effiong later went to one of their neighbours to borrow a rope, locked his room door and committed the act. Before neighbours could figure out what he did with the rope, he had already hanged himself. His room door was later forced to open, and they met his body dangling from the rope he had used for the suicide.

One of his friends who also rushed to the scene said the 21-year old called him before committing the act, that he should tell his girlfriend, blessing, that she should now be happy that he has killed himself for her.

His last Facebook post also shows he has been depressed.

Photos: Check Out A Village In Papua New Guinea Where Dead Relatives Are Smoked With Their Fat Used As Cooking Oil

From the cliffs of a village in Papua New Guinea's Morobe highlands, charred corpses leer at passers-by. Their flesh is stained red, and they seem to be imprisoned within cages of bamboo, as if to keep them from leaping down and devouring any explorer who strays too close.

But this macabre practise is not (only) a way to scare away strangers. For the Anga people in these remote parts of the country, it is the highest honour they can bestow on their dead.

Dead men, women and children are effectively smoke cured, in much the same way as a kipper, Dailymail reports.
