NAIJ.com came across a sad post about a young girl who appeared to have hanged herself after reportedly being forced into an unwanted marriage.
The picture of a young girl who was found hanging from a tree has hit the internet and has stirred controversy.
The picture was shared on Facebook by Sirrinsu media, who claim the girl had been forced into an early marriage.
It is assumed that the girl may have killed herself out of frustration.
The post was shared in Hausa, see below:

The post can be translated as:
"Marriage problem is compulsory.
