Man Who Committed Suicide Left A Note Blaming Harsh Economic Situation.

It was a gory sight as the body of a 50-year-old man, identified as Chief Ekanem Edet, dangled from a rope tied to the roof of his room at Mbiabong Itam in Itu Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State. 





Vanguard learned that Ekanem Edet, former Secretary of the Mbiabong Village Council, popularly called Jolly Boy, waited until his wife and two sons went out before taking his life, allegedly leaving a suicide note in which he blamed his action on harsh economic condition. 


According to a close family source, the deceased, in the suicide note, blamed government for inflicting unbearable pains and hardship on Nigerians. A close associate of the deceased, Mr. Okon Effiong, told newsmen that Ekanem Edet was discovered dead by his friend, who went to visit him. 

He added that Edet was immediately buried after some traditional rites of passage were performed. He said: “He was a very sociable man and always shared his thoughts on issues. I do not know why he should consider suicide as the last option to escape from these hard times.” Vanguard further learned that few days to his death, the deceased complained bitterly about the current economic crunch. 


According to a family source, “Edet took his life, blaming his action on the prevailing hardship.” The source added that the deceased, who deals on Ogogoro, cigarettes and other stimulants, decided to take his life when it appeared that he could no longer run his small family with the meagre earnings from his trade. 


A pastor at the local church recalled: “He used to complain that his petty business was no longer fetching him and his family basic needs such as food, clothing and fees for the children’s education. “He was always blaming government for the economic policies that do not allow him afford basic commodities such as gari, bread, yam, rice, beans, oil, kerosene and other essential goods.” According to him, the family was reluctant to call in the police because of the suicide note.

So sad. I wonder what yoruba people that insisted that Buhari is Nigeria's messiah has to say about this.

They buried him without an autopsy? That note could have been left there by anyone. I imagine it would take more than economic challenges for a person named "jolly boy" to kill himself.

OluVee said...

Na wa o, this regime is really strangling people but suicide is never the way out. Now how will his wife and two children survive, does he expect them to also commit suicide. If Lagos residents are complaining I wonder what's happening in rural areas. #lagoscenterofexcellence

I wonder how Buhari feels reading about all the hardship he brought on this country. What new or innovative ideas does he intended to bring to the table?

Only a coward takes his own life to escape reality. He should have thought of the famiy he is leaving behind. Death is not the solution.

Your comments always reek of ignorance. An ogogoro seller wrote a suicide note, nice.

God bless you real good.

Tilly said...

To commit suicide is his way of running away from his problems. What does he want his family to do? If everyone were to commit suicide and blame it on the economy, who will remain? Some people are complaining about the economy and singing woe songs while some are still making money legitimately and living well in the midst of the issues.

Starjoy said...

So sad that he has to end his life like that, what if things turn out to be good again nko?

Oyanu Enenche said...

Never make suicide an option. You might be disappointed when you get to the other side.

This has nothing to do with buhari. No matter who came in, same challenges would have still persisted because oil prices would have dropped regardless. It would have even been worse because Jonathan and co would have continued to loot the country dry. Do u think buhari is some magician or what?

Anonymous said...

Upon all Jonathan and his people stole people were still better off. When are u going to stop lying to yourself and accept that your "messiah " has failed to save you. Blaming Jonathan just gives you a way out of your misery.

sisi eko said...

Hmmm.. you know this. I guess the man was depressed.

sisi eko said...

Sweetie, no matter how good the economy, hope u know that they'd still be some poor people who'll not be able to afford their basic needs? In every country in the world, even the ones with the best social welfare package for the jobless folks, people still complain and fall short of the normal living standard.

No matter how good a leader, some people will still complain about him. And no matter how bad a leader, they'll be those who'd applaud him as perfect. So you see, it's a two way thingy.

sisi eko said...

That's the spirit.

sisi eko said...

Absolute cowardice
