Man commits suicide after seeing wife in bed with her ex-boyfriend in Nigeria.
A 31-year-old man, Jivini Jonnan, in Taraba state has allegedly committed suicide after discovering that his fiancée had jilted him and returned to her former boyfriend.
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.
It was gathered that Jonnan committed suicide by drinking an insecticide in the Wukari Local Government Area of Taraba state.
The relative was heard saying:
“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 marry 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.
