Man commits suicide in Delta community over wife’s separation
A middle-aged man, popularly known as Mr Ogheneovo has reportedly committed suicide following his wife’s separation from him.
The deceased was said to have consumed an insecticide at his residence located along Gesimisi Street, Okumagba Layout in Warri, Delta State.
Although no suicide note was discovered, sources said the man’s action might not be unconnected with his wife and children who left him in January.
The late Ogheneovo’s wife had reportedly left him “due to constant drinking which got him drunk and made him beat the wife on several occasions”.
One of the co-tenants who would not want her name in print said that “the wife, who could no longer condone the abuse, left with her three children and left behind the elder one”.
PUNCH Metro gathered that on the said day, the deceased made a distress call to his son, telling him to call back, but the son who was too busy with customers at his shop returned the call much later.
Sources said the son had to rush home when his father was not picking up his calls only to discover his father’s lifeless body on the bed with a can of insecticide by his side.
It was further disclosed that the deceased had sometime before, made an attempt to take his life by hanging, but was caught in the act and rescued by a neighbour.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe told journalists that such an incident had not been reported as of the time of filing this report.
