A 21-year-old girl will soon be charged to court for attempting to take her life in the course of the week at Berger Camp, Phase 2, Site 1, Kubwa, Abuja.
The individual, identified as Ifeoma, had survived a first attempt to end her life last Saturday before the recent one.
City News reports that Ifeoma had been dating a customs officer, for about three years before they broke up.
She later heard that her lover, while away in his home town, got engaged to another woman.
A source said Ifeoma vowed she would not be alive to see her lover marry another woman.
“When it became obvious that the man was bent on dumping her for the other woman, she drank a poisonous substance suspected to be an insecticide.”
But Ifeoma, who was rushed to the Kubwa General Hospital where she was resuscitated and discharged earlier in the week, attempted taking her life again on Wednesday.
She was, however, rushed to the same hospital a second time.
The Kubwa Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, confirmed the incident, adding that the lady would be charged to court as soon as she was discharged.
