Rivers: Jilted Lover Commits Suicide



A man popularly called Tailor at Omuokiri Village, Aluu Community in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State has committed suicide due to an alleged betrayal from his lover.

Information gathered revealed that the incident occurred at about 10 pm on Saturday at Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state.

It was reported that middle-aged man committed suicide after his lover decided to abandon the relationship.

A neighbour, who spoke in confidence, said Tailor, who hailed from Kogi but resided in Aluu, killed himself when his lover visited on a fateful night to call it to quit.

The source further stated that neighbours tried to resolve the issue but the lady remained adamant and moved her belongings out of the man’s house.

The source said: “The incident happened last night. The young man was with his girlfriend in the room and they had a problem.”

“The lady said she was no longer interested in the relationship. She packed her things and left the house. It was later that one of our neighbours found out that Tailor had hanged himself.”

“As I speak to you now, there is trouble in the compound because the people of Aluu said it is a taboo in their area.”

“They have locked the gate and asked everybody to pack out till traditional cleaning is done in the compound.”
