A 34- year- old man identified simply as Kevwe has committed suicide in Delta State, by drinking a poisonous substance over his inability to raise money to treat an undisclosed ailment.
The incident occurred on Thursday, January 14, at about 12.00noon near the ever-busy Olympia Cinema, Abeke by Adeola road, Sapele, Sapele Local Government Area of the state.
The victim, said to be a commercial tricycle rider was taken to a private clinic where he was confirmed dead.
It was gathered that the father of two suffered from an undisclosed ailment since 2020 and was informed by doctors to raise N170, 000 before 27th January to enable him to commence treatment.
A family source, who spoke to The Nation, said his family has been treating him since he fell sick.
“Just last month, he went to see the doctor again and they told him to bring N170,000. Now see what he has done. How will he come to the Olympia, the centre of the town and drink snipper, killing himself in the process?” the source said.
His grieving mother lamented that the deceased had been threatening to take his own life for some time.
“He was in my house this morning, it was in my house that he took his bath and I even bought bread and a bottle of Fanta drink for him. He was complaining about the same problem and I told him to have hope that we will raise the cash, now see what he has done.” she said.
