35-year-old, Ibrahim Haruna, has committed suicide over N520,000 he borrowed from friends to scale up his Point of Sale (POS) business.
The incident was said to have occurred at his residence in Byazhin area of Kubwa in Bwari Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
According to Daily Trust, the deceased’s younger brother, Isah, said that things were not going well for his brother and that he was certain the debt was responsible for his brother drinking the otapiapia.
Isah said, “My brother once jokingly told me that he would kill himself because of the pressure he was getting from people to return their money, but I always told him everything would be okay.”
One of the residents, Yinka Ogunleye, who expressed shock at the news, said, “He called many friends earlier on that day informing them that he was embarking on a very far journey?
“He even visited various joints in the area before heading home to take the otapiapia.”
A health worker at the Kubwa General Hospital, who pleaded anonymity, who confirmed the incident said that his remains had been taken to the morgue.
