A banker with one of the first generation banks has committed suicide in his apartment in Victoria Island, Lagos, after drinking an insecticide and leaving his wife a note that says “you married the wrong man.”
While the deceased banker, identified simply as Onyechere, was said to have left a suicide note behind for his wife, the commercial bus driver did not.
The lifeless body of Onyechere, who left behind an only daughter, was discovered by his wife on arrival from the market, with the suicide note and poisonous substance found beside him.
The suicide note read: “The Best, that’s what I used to call you. Finally this is the end of my journey here on earth. The evil I have been battling with has succeeded in quenching the flame.
“You married a wrong man. You’re a good woman and you deserved the best. You need to be happy. You need to soar.
“Please take care of our princess, Chinenyenwa. Tell her that I love her so much. Be peaceable with everyone, though (it’s) not gonna be easy. Tell my family not to harbour any resentment against you. You’re a blessing to us.
“That’s the wish of a dying man. Don’t cry for me, but pray for me. I love you and Chinenye so much. Goodbye My beloved.”
Before the incident, he was said to have told some of his friends his intention to commit suicide on Facebook, but was cautioned against such.
