NYSC Member Commits Suicide over Girlfriend..

The body of a 26-year-old National Youth Service Corp, NYSC, member, identified simply as Ernest, was recovered from his one room apartment after he reportedly took a poisonous substance. 

Reports indicated that the young man, who was in love with a fellow NYSC member, Chioma Okewuru, went furious when the girl came back from her village over the weekend with a ring from a man who has recently promised to marry her. Ernest, who is from Edo State and a graduate of the University of Benin, was posted to Cross River State in October, where he met and fell in love with Chioma, and both were serving in Redemption Secondary School, Ofombogha 1 in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross Rivers State.

 Mr. Noah Ntuen, Acting Divisional Police Officer for Obubra told Vanguard over the phone that: “The girl had told the guy that she would not marry him, but that they could be friends. So when she came back from home last weekend and showed him the ring her husband-to-be gave her, the young man became furious. “On Wednesday, the situation became even worse and at about 7pm, it was discovered that he locked himself in the room and took some poisonous substances.” 

A source in the school told Vanguard: “They met at the NYSC Orientation Camp at Abrekpe-Ebokpo and as luck would have it, they were both posted to the same school where they had a relationship going. “He had the hope the whole thing would end in marriage, but Chioma already had another person she wants to marry.” 

Ntuen said the body had been deposited in the mortuary of Obubra General Hospital, while Chioma is with the police, where investigations on the circumstances surrounding the tragic death are in progress.
