A Director, Mr Edward Soje has allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself on a tree in Lokoja, the state capital.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered on Saturday in Lokoja that the dangling body of Soje was found on a tree behind the mammy market at the Maigumeri barracks, the Nigeria Army Command Record.

The 54-year-old civil servant decided to take his life barely 10 days after his wife of 17 years gave birth to a set of male triplets in a private hospital in Abuja. The couple had been childless before then.

Soje, a Grade Level 16 Officer in the Kogi State Teaching Service Commission, was being owed 11 months’ salary arrears as at the time he took his life.

He hailed from Ogori town in Ogori -Magongo Local Government area of the state.

He had before killing himself travelled to Abuja and left a suicide note for the wife who also works in one of the federal ministries.

“Psalm 121:3 God will not suffer your foot to be moved: He that keepeth you will not slumber. Amen. You and the three boys, the God Almighty will keep you and prosper you, amen. I love you,” according to the suicide note.

Confirming the incident, the state police command Public Relations Officer, ASP William Aya said that the dangling body of Soje was found on a tree behind the barracks at about 5:55 p.m on Oct. 16.

Aya said that the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Area D Division received information about the incident from the military intelligence office in the barracks.

“Police moved to the scene, removed the corpse to the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja. Investigation is still ongoing,” Aya said.

The police spokesman said that nothing was found on the man to help trace his address and family.

However, a search party organised by his relations and friends, found his corpse at the morgue of the hospital on Friday, Oct. 20.

Family sources said that Soje had before the incident been going through a lot of financial pressure due to non-payment of his salary for 11 months by the Kogi State Government.

He was among thousands of civil servants being owed between two and 21 months’ salary arrears by the state government.

As a way out, he was said to have sold his only car and a three-bedroom bungalow he was building at Otokiti area of Lokoja.

The building which was at lintel level was sold by Soje at a giveaway price of N1.5 million in April to meet urgent family needs, it was gathered.

According to the sources, Soje’s financial woes became compounded when the wife gave birth to a set of triplets through Caesarian operation in a private hospital in Abuja on Oct. 7.

The deceased remained in the hospital to look after wife and children until Oct. 13, a day before the naming ceremony when he decided to come back to Lokoja.

On getting to Lokoja, Soje went straight to his bank to collect the remaining N30,000 in his salary account with one of the commercial banks and thereafter informed the bank in writing about his decision to close the account.

He immediately left Lokoja for the hospital in Abuja where he rejoined his wife and handed over the N30,000 cash to her.

On Oct. 14, Soje and wife were joined by two pastors and few relatives to perform a brief naming ceremony for the triplets in the hospital.

He later left the hospital on the pretext that he wanted to pick few things from the wife’s apartment in Abuja with a promise to come back quickly.

But Soje did not return for hours and did not pick any of the many calls made to his telephone line, a development which forced the wife to send somebody to the house to go and ascertain what was happening to him.

The person, on getting to the apartment knocked the door severally but no response and decided to call his telephone number.

On hearing the telephone ringing out from the apartment, the person was said to have knocked severally again but no response, this made him to seek the assistance of neighbours to force the door open.

When the door was opened, the people were shocked when they saw Soje’s telephone handset placed on a suicide note on the centre table in the sitting room while he was nowhere to be found.

When the wife was informed, she quickly contacted some people to begin a search for him in Abuja while relations and friends in Lokoja were also informed of the development.

Efforts made to locate him did not yield fruit until relations decided to visit hospitals in Lokoja, the decision paid off eventually on Friday, October 20 when the corpse of Soje was found in the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Lokoja.

A member of the family said that the management of the hospital explained to them that Soje’s corpse was brought in by the police, who found it dangling on a tree.

A member of the family, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described the late Soje as a “very quiet and lovable human being. “

He said that some members of the family have been sent to Abuja to break the news to the wife and refused to answer further questions.

The family, in the suicide note, asked authorities to sell their property to help settle the dues.

Snake Man Commits Suicide By Snake Bite, And Streams His Last Minutes Online

A controversial suicide story has hit the internet of a snake expert who reportedly allowed his deadly pet black mamba to bite him on his hand and he live-streamed his excruciating death over the internet. Although his friends have refused to admit it was suicide and that it was an accident that occurred while he was trying to transfer a snake into a transparent plastic for live streaming.

Arslan Valeev committed “suicide by snake” because he was apparently heartbroken following the breakup of his marriage and pleaded with horrified viewers to call his ex-wife.

Arslan is seen at the beginning of the video looking relatively OK while displaying his bleeding finger for viewers, then his condition deteriorated as the harrowing scenes were broadcast online. The 31-year-old’s breathing quickened and his eyes started rolling before his limbs appeared to become numb from the deadly snake’s venom.

Arslan and his wife Ekaterina “Katya” Pyatyzhkina were famous for running YouTube channels about snakes and cats, with hundreds of thousands of followers. Arslan and his wife seemed so in love in all their photos so it’s understandable that he was devastated when things went south.

Friends said that Arslan had accused his wife of cheating on him, while reports claimed he had beat her and she had suffered a concussion. Last week, Arslan publicly apologised to her for his behaviour, but she had already obtained a divorce and was in a new relationship.

In the shocking live stream, he said: “Hi. So, guys. It’s time to do what I must do. Live stream [unintelligible].”

He then got up and went off camera, but a muffled sound of “ouch” could be heard as the deadly snake bit him.

He returned telling viewers: “If I die, then I die… I just will stay with you for some time. Just in case – on my mobile there is a message for Katya.”

At this point, he started breathing faster, and his eyes started rolling. His muscles appeared to become numb.

The Russian blogger showed his bitten finger with blood on it, saying: “Pass on to Katya that I loved her very much. Beautiful, isn’t it? Oh, damn, how it. Bye to everyone. I can’t believe it is happening to me.”

He then read out his former wife’s mobile number.

He added: “This is Katya’s number, if someone manages to call her, if she has time to come to me and see me, I would be happy. In fact I’m already dying. Farewell. I would be glad to see Katya. Damn, I’m shaking.”

At the end of the footage, he got up from his chair and staggered off camera. At least one viewer called an ambulance, which later arrived and rushed him to hospital, but medics were unable to save him. It was also claimed that he had stumbled into the street seeking help before the ambulance arrived for him. The actual snake bite and moment of death were not shown.

A day earlier, the former zoo employee had announced a special broadcast with one of his “most beloved snakes”, called Mamba, but he gave no clue about his intentions.

His ex-wife has not spoken publicly about the distressing video. Friends of Arslan have paid tribute to him online. One friend said it was not suicide but an accident as Arslan tried to transfer a snake.

The friend wrote on one of his channels: “Turning on the camera, as normal, he went to get a snake out of the terrarium to move it into a plastic container used for broadcasts. In the process of doing this the snake bit him. Being an expert in keeping poisonous snakes with 20 years experience, Arslan aware of what happened. He left a message to his wife Ekaterina, and asked viewers who turned out to be eyewitnesses to get in touch with Katya, because his limbs began to get numb quickly, depriving him of the opportunity to call help himself. Then he went out into the street, waiting for the arrival of help.”

In the posting when Arslan apologised to Katya, he also wrote: “I see that everything has passed for you, a new life began with someone you have long been close to.”

He also said: “There were no betrayals, we had no sex since July, we parted even earlier. They started to date at the end of July and I believe Katya about this.”

He told her: “I am sincerely happy about it, but too weak not to react with stupidities. In any case, my misdemeanors have only come back to me, while your new life allows you to treat my words as … like noise, probably. Take this with humour, laugh at me and go further, as your current situation allows you to.”

But he shared his pain over the breakup.

He said: “I cannot describe in words the extent of my disappointment with myself. I cannot describe the shock that I experience every day when I wake up in this new world without someone I have lost and deserved to lose, who I was with a couple of seconds ago in a dream. If it makes you feel better, it hurts and I’m lonely. I know what to do, I’ve heard a lot of advice, but the feeling of emptiness and a broken life can only pass with time. Miracles do not happen, we do not live in a fairy tale

Fatal Attraction: Jealous Lover Kills Fiancé and Commits Suicide

Cases of men and women killing their lovers due to jealousy seems to be an issue that the government all over the world still haven’t been able to stop.

 The latest case is that of a boda boda operator from Tayari in Molo town, Nakuru County Kenya on Monday night, September 18, stabbed his 25-year-old girlfriend Cinta Nyambs to death before hanging himself.

The 25-year-old man identified as Daniel Mwangi alias Dan, had first attempted to stab himself, before ingesting pesticide. When the suicide attempts failed, he resorted to ending his life using a rope tied to the rafter.

Cinta Nyambs, was found lying in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds in the chest, neck and stomach.

Residents said Cinta and Dan had engaged in a heated argument Monday night before Cinta’s screams were heard emanating from Dan’s rental house.

According to Dan’s neighbour, Andrew Marwa, he heard Cinta’s screams at 7pm Monday, but could not gain access into Dan’s house since the house’s main door was made of steel, making it difficult to break the door open.

One of the residents, who broke into Dan’s house after several attempts, said the two lovebirds were already dead by the time he got access into the house.

“The house was a mess; several broken clay cups were spread in the room; a strong smell of the pesticide had filled the air,” said Dan’s neighbour, Silas Awiti.

A suicide note left behind by Dan implied that Cinta was having a love affair with another man, which sparked the fatal jealousy.

“I love her so much she cannot date another man while I’m still alive. It is so stupid of me to do this (commit murder, suicide), but why should I live?” read the note in part.

Paul Itume, a village elder in Molo, said had the neighbours responded to Cinta’s screams in good time, her life would have been saved.

Itume expressed concern over the frequent cases of partners committing murder or suicide in Molo town, urging lovers to solve their differences amicably without resorting to violence.

Molo Deputy County Commissioner David Wanyonyi, who confirmed the incident said the loss of lives of Cinta and Dan was as a result of love gone sour.

Cinta, who got engaged to Dan in October, 2016, had graduated from Bondo Teachers’ Training College with a certificate in primary education.
