A father of six, Felix Edore, who found out that his wife of 16 years was allegedly cheating on him, has committed suicide in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta State.
The 48-year-old cab driver was said to have drunk a poisonous pesticide, Sniper, in his car on Friday and was rushed to a private clinic in the Amukpe area of Sapele, where doctors battled to save his life, but he reportedly died on Saturday.
A source who spoke to Punch on the incident said: “The cab driver, who used to shuttle between Abraka-Eku and Sapele, took his life because of his wife.”
Another resident simply as Mama Rita said: “Felix decided to end it all when he suspected that his wife was indulging in extra-marital affairs.
“The deceased was married to the wife and they had six children; the man was always complaining of his wife’s alleged infidelity and most times they would quarrel over it, and he was always saying he would kill himself because of her infidelity.
“So, that day, we never knew that he had bought the Sniper insecticide and before we knew what was happening, he drank the insecticide in his car and people, who saw him, raised the alarm; that was how we found out and rushed him to hospital, but he died on Saturday.”
