A young man in Taraba State identified as Jivini Jonnan, has committed suicide after finding out that his bride-to-be is having an affair with her ex-boyfriend.
Jivini, 31 allegedly caught both love birds in bed and decided to end his life with an insect repellant in the Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba State, according to The PUNCHs.
According to a relative of the victim, Jonnan was heartbroken after walking in on his fiancee with her ex as she broke up with him on the spot despite having concluded their traditional marriage together.
“They had gone through the traditional marriage rites and she seemed to love him because they had been in the relationship for over three years.
“The traditional wedding was held on March 21 this year, where they both consented to marrying each other.
“Jonnan was called by his friends, who told him that they saw his fiancée with her ex-lover, only for him to rush there and find her in the ex-boyfriend’s room.
“An altercation ensued and since it was obvious that she had taken side with her ex-lover, Jonnan left heartbroken, only for us to hear that he committed suicide,” the relative told reporters.
