SWITZERLAND, MARCH 05 – A father of six, identified as Felix Edore, has reportedly committed suicide over alleged infidelity by his wife of 16 years.

According to the Nation the incident occurred late Friday in Sapele, Delta State.

The newspaper said sources revealed Edore, a cab driver, who shuttles neighbouring Abraka and Eku communities only recently bought a fairly-used car for his business.

He was said to have drunk Sniper, a poisonous pesticide, in his car after discovering that his wife was having extramarital affairs.

He was reportedly rushed to a private clinic in the Amukpe area of Sapele where the doctors tried to save his life until he died early hours of Saturday.

A resident of the area said Edore had showed no sign of being suicidal.

A neighbor, who preferred to be anonymous, said: “He came home that evening and was as usual very lively. He brought his car and was complaining about the radiator or so. It was when he left and came back that we learnt he had drank Sniper. I think he must have taken the insecticide inside the car”.

The Delta State Police Command however, could not confirm the incident.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onowakpoyeya said, “the DPO said they did not report the incident to the station.”

Relatives were said to have since buried the deceased in his village, Kpokpogiri, also within the state.
