May GOD have Mercy on is soul. Amen!
There was also a report of a Germany based Nigerian man identified as Francis Ibegbulem, who reportedly committed suicide after getting dumped by his girlfriend too.
Friends of the late man believed he killed himself after a lady he invested so much in, dumped him to marry another man in 2017.
Francis was said to have made an initial attempt to kill himself with a knife, he was however rescued by friends after which he ran into the forest to hang himself. When friends didn’t hear from him for some days, a search party was organised before his corpse was then discovered in a nearby forest.
