A young lady and mother of one in her mid-twenties has ended her life by drinking Sniper, a poisonous substance, after her randy lover jilted her for another woman.
The tragic incident occurred on Friday afternoon when the lady, identified as Uche Rejoice, was said to have made an attempt to get her man, whose name was not immediately given, to change his mind about their relationship but could not convince him.
Uche Rejoice, a resident of Mpape, a shanty suburb in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, was found at the back of her residence writhing in pains shortly after she had swallowed the lethal drink. Her neighbour’s who found her were heard screaming at her and asking why she decided to drink Sniper just because she was disappointed by a man
Some of the men held her and we’re pressing her chest in an attempt to save her life while others tried to administer palm oil in futile effort to revive her. She eventually gave up the ghost in the compound before she could be rushed to hospital.
As at the time of going to press EducationTell could not confirm the whereabouts to the boyfriend and the police had not been contacted. It was however learnt that the runaway boyfriend is not the father of Rejoice’s only girl child.
