Mayen announced that the state police will be conducting an investigation into the deaths.
In four separate incidents, citizens of the state have hung themselves. None of them left a suicide note or any indication of their motive.
A policeman in the state was recently talked-down from hanging himself by his in-laws. He said he was attempting suicide because his mother accused him of not caring for her.
In 2010 a in Rumbek man hung himself due to pressure to provide for his family.
Lakes state government say they are doing their best to find the cause of the suicides.
