A man who couldn't stomach the pains of his wife cheating on him has taken his own life in Delta.
A man identified as Felix Edore, who is a father of six has committed suicide after he reportedly found out that his wife of 16 years was having an affair.
The tragic incident took place late Friday in Sapele, Delta State.
It was gathered that Edore, a cab driver who shuttled between Abraka and Eku communities recently bought a fairly-used car for his business.
He was said to have drunk Sniper, a poisonous pesticide, in his car, after discovering that his wife was having extramarital affairs.
He was reportedly rushed to a private clinic in the Amukpe area of Sapele, where the doctors tried to save his life until he died early hours of Saturday.
A resident of the area said Edore showed no sign of being suicidal.
A neighbour, identified 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."
