A 23 year old lady identified as Rejoice has committed suicide in the Mpape area of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, by drinking Sniper, a popular pesticide.
The incident, which occurred on Saturday, threw the entire area into confusion as neighbours battled to save her life.
Newsmen gathered that the deceased discovered that her boyfriend was having an affair with another lady and decided to take her own life out of anger.
It was also gathered that the deceased had always threatened to kill herself over the unfaithfulness of her boyfriend.
A resident of the area disclosed that Rejoice had been having financial difficulties to cater for her child, who she had for another man.
Her body was said to have been found in the bathroom and she was given red oil to neutralize the effect of the snipper but was later rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Spokesperson for the FCT Police Command, Anjuguri Manzal, could not be reached when contacted by reporters for comments as calls to his mobile numbers were not answered.
