LATEST news reaching us today, is that a Twenty Six (26yr) old UNIBEN graduate kills himself after his lover gets engaged.

According to our correspondent, the 26 year old, who is a graduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) has committed suicide after a finding out that the girl with whom he has fall crazily in love with, has been engaged by another man, and this has truly made him sad and depressed.

The Name of the Lover Man, is Ernest, who was a current member of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC), who is serving at Redemption Secondary School, Ofombogha 1, Obubra LGA of Cross Rivers State.

We also gathered and confirmed through reliable sources, that the deceased, Ernest and the girl, Chioma Okewuru, both serve at the same school.

He died by drinking a poisonous substance after Chioma returned from a trip with an engagement ring, supposedly given to her by the man she intends to marry.

The Acting Divisional Police Officer for Obubra, Mr. Noah Ntuen, told Vanguard that Chioma had previously rejected Ernest’s love advances and told him she could only be his friend, and if we are to use the western word for such relationship, she was trying to “Friendzone” him.

“The girl had told the guy that she would not marry him, but that they could be friends,” Ntuen said.

“So when Chioma came back from her Village last weekend and showed Ernest her new ring, which her husband-to-be gave her, the young man became angry.

“The problem escalated on Wednesday, and the situation became worse and at about 7pm, he locked himself in the room and took some poisonous substances.”

Ntuen added that the Police are carrying out investigations.

A source who plead anonymous, disclosed to our correspondent, that the romance between the two corp members began when they met during their orientation camp last year.

Here’s the source original statement and we quote him directly:

“The duo met at the NYSC Orientation Camp at Abrekpe-Ebokpo and as luck would have it, they were both posted to the same school where they had a relationship going, which the deceased so much appreciated”.

“Ernest, we learnt, had the hope the whole thing would end in marriage, but Chioma already had another person she wants to marry.”
