Kindly share this story:
A 29-year-old man, Vandu Weida, has committed suicide by drinking herbicides.
The incident occurred at Mildu Central, in the Madagali Local Government Area of Adamawa State last Tuesday.
Vandu, a father of three, had a misunderstanding with his wife, which degenerated into a fight.
An eyewitness said during the fight, Weida told his wife that he was fed up with her and the world and preferred to die in order to leave her with the children.
After the fight, the man, who could not control his temper, allegedly went and drank the chemical, and was later found on the ground gasping for breath.
He was rushed to the Mubi General Hospital, where he was confirmed dead, as the substance had already damaged his intestines.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said he was not aware of the incident, but promised to get back after contacting the Madagali Police Division.
He had yet to get back to our correspondent as of the time of filing this report
