A man identified as Nsisong Okon Etim has committed suicide at Efiat Ikot Edo community in Uyo Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The deceased, a 27-year-old graduate was said to have killed himself on Tuesday over alleged frequent disturbances by his mother, step-brother, and landlord.
Before he took his life, Okon-Etim, dropped a note saying: “I am ending my miserable life to escape from constant worries and disturbances by my mother, step-brother and the landlord, whose shop I rented to sell cooking gas.”
According to a member of the deceased’s family, Etim completed the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme last year and went into the business of selling cooking gas on the Old Ring Road, Uyo, “because of inability to get a job.”
A sister of the deceased also described him to be one who “was very discreet and always kept to himself.”
“He rarely ate our mother’s food. He usually cooked for himself.”
