Minna-- 43year Old Man Commits Suicide Over Inability To Pay N35,000 House Rent

   A 43-year old mechanic in Minna, Obi Orji has committed suicide over his inability to pay his N35,000 house rent b y drinking a poisonous chemical. It was learnt that Obi took his own life after his wife and five children had left for the morning mass, leaving only him at home. Here’s how his colleague described what happened.
           Obi’s landlord, simply identified as Alhaji Lateef, had constantly traced him to his workshop at the Mechanic bye-pass in Minna, threatening to forcefully evict him out of the house if he failed to pay his rent at the appointed date.

          When the date expired and the deceased could not meet the obligation, he decided to take his life instead of facing the embarrassment and humiliation from his landlord.
His body was later deposited at Minna General Hospital.
