A 31-year-old man, Jivini Jonnan has allegedly committed suicide after catching his fiancée with her former boyfriend in the Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba State.
Jonnan was said to have returned home after the encounter to drink an insecticide.
He allegedly took his life after discovering that his fiancée had jilted him for her former boyfriend.
It was learnt that the deceased became heartbroken after he found his fiancée in a room with her ex-boyfriend. She was said to have told him she was no longer interested in their relationship inspite of the completion of their traditional marriage rites.
A family source, who pleaded not to be named, said, “They had gone through the traditional marriage rites and she seemed to love him because they had been in the relationship for over three years.
“The traditional wedding was held on March 21 this year, where they both consented to marrying each other.
“Jonnan was called by his friends, who told him that they saw his fiancée with her ex-lover, only for him to rush there and find her in the ex-boyfriend’s room.
“An altercation ensued and since it was obvious that she had taken side with her ex-lover, Jonnan left heartbroken, only for us to hear that he committed suicide.”
After Jonnan was found unconscious, sympathisers rushed him to the hospital, but doctors pronounced him dead.
