Due to the sensitivity of the situation, a source who spoke with a Punch journalist on Monday on condition of anonymity claimed that the deceased had allegedly warned his wife that she would soon cry over his failure to pay their rent

“He had had an altercation with his wife after his landlord issued a quit notice to him for not meeting up with the increased rent of N60,000 for their one-room apartment.

“The rent was initially N35,000, and he struggled to pay it. This made him tell his wife that he might lose him soon as pressure was mounting up for him already.

“He came home from Iba yesterday (Sunday) where he went to chill with his friends only for him to call a young man (name withheld) that he would commit suicide with the bottle of insecticide he was holding. The young man immediately ran to his wife after luring him to stop, and they all called for help.

“Before they could return to where he was, he had already taken the substance and was given antidotes to make sure that he was stable and taken to a hospital for proper treatment.

“They got a bus and when they got to the hospital at 11 pm, he was confirmed dead,”
 he added.
