The 48-yr-old man, who was a cab driver reportedly drank Sniper on Friday, February 28, 2020. He was thereafter rushed to a private hospital, but doctors could not save him. Mr. Felix Edore died on Saturday, February 29.
A source who spoke to our correspondent on the incident said,
“The cab driver, who used to shuttle between Abraka-Eku and Sapele, took his life because of his wife.”
A resident of the area, who spoke on the condition of anonymity described the deceased as an easy-going man, who was passionate about his job.
Another resident simply known as Mama Rita told us that
“Felix decided to end it all when he suspected that his wife was indulging in extra-marital affairs.
“The deceased was married to the wife and they had six children; the man was always complaining of his wife’s alleged infidelity and most times they would quarrel over it, and he was always saying he would kill himself because of her infidelity.
“So, that day, we never knew that he had bought the Sniper insecticide and before we knew what was happening, he drank the insecticide in his car and people, who saw him, raised the alarm; that was how we found out and rushed him to hospital, but he died on Saturday.
