Lobatan-- Married Man Attempts Suicide Over Girlfriend
What a sinful world we live in these days...According to Sun, Ediekan, father of two children,attempted to commit suicide after failed attempt to have sex with a girl by name Favour with whom he reportedly had a long standing relationship and spent so much of his money.
According to report, Favour who lives within the same neighborhood resisted all entreaties and kept on promising that she would eventually marry him. However, on Thursday night, Ediekan could no longer hide his frustrations when he discovered that Favour was going to bed with another man. Ediekan,who felt cheated, became emotionally depressed and began the plot to commit suicide within the compound.
Speaking to his wife Florence she said
“I was alarmed when he came in complaining that all the people he loved did not reciprocate his love. As his wife, I re- iterated my love to him, but he said he wasn’t referring to me, but one Favour whom he had spent so much money for and yet refused to return his gestures with love. He then asked if I could take care of our two children if he dies.
At that point, I became worried and tried to discourage him from such negative thoughts. Early in the morning, as he stood up from the bed, I tried to hold him back but he broke loose and went outside. Even then, I didn’t know that he had already got a rope and some chairs where he intended to hang himself. But after a while, I saw him with a rope around his neck and his legs dangling in the air.
I immediately raised the alarm and neighbours came around and used cutlass to cut off the rope.”
Some of his neighbours expressed disappointment over the incident. But Ediekan, insisted to still commit another suicide because he could not watch Favour sleeping with another man. People had to persuade favour to accept his love and promise him marriage which she obliged. Following the assurance, Ediekan angrily told his neighbours to leave him alone to face his problems, adding that if he dies, people would take care of his children.
Is he under curse or something???Married man for that matter. Pathetic!.
