A 32-year-old man, Tuesday in Yenagoa, committed suicide over his wife’s infidelity.
He was said to have consumed an insecticide, Sniper, after he caught his wife in bed with another man.
The incident occurred at Ikolo, in Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa State.
The deceased, identified as Amatari Christmas, was married to Tombara, an indigene of Ayama in the same local government area and the couple have two children.
According to Vanguard, the incident has provoked anger among indigenes of the community, with some kinsmen threatening to invoke their ancestors to deal with the unfaithful woman and her lover, identified as a suspected cultist and an indigene of Ayama.
A kinsman of the deceased, who gave his name as Francis, said their late brother, on getting wind of claims of infidelity against his wife, decided to monitor her activities in the community.
Francis said: “On Monday, the husband went to fetch vegetable in large quantities for his wife to sell. After harvesting the vegetable, the husband told the wife to return home after market to prepare dinner for the family.
“However, the dead husband became worried and suspicious at about 7p.m. when the wife did not return as instructed and went in search of her at his in-law’s house.
“At the mother in-law’s house, he was told she had gone to the father’s place at Ayama. At Ayama, a concerned friend took him to the home of his wife’s lover, where he caught them in bed”.
