According to report, a 25 years old Nigerian man, identified as Chime Chinedu Afamefuna, was recently saved from committing suicide after he drank a poisonous concoction suspected to be rat poison in Uwani, Enugu state.
It was gathered that Afamefuna was found by the members of the Enugu South division of Enugu State Command of the Nigerian Legion Corps of Commissionaires, vomiting after drinking the poisonous substance in one of the classrooms at Uwani Boys Secondary School premises in Enugu state on the 12th of August.
The Divisional Officer of Enugu South Division of Nigerian Legion Corps of Commissionaires, Ekoh-Clement O.I., who said his men were in the school premises for training when they discovered Afamefuna, disclosed that;
“After the field walkout and parade, they retired to one of the classrooms for briefing only to discover a young man whose name was later gathered as Chime Chinedu Afamefuna who left a suicide note, drank a poisonous substance, vomited all over the classroom and was sitting in the pool of his vomit. The officers quickly perused the suicide note and some men were sent to an address that was left on the note where a supposed relation by name Gloria Aneke can be found while the divisional officer alongside with two other officers rushed to Uwani Police Station. The DPO was not in the office so the officers met the DCO (Sp Okeke Chinedu) who responded quickly and sent some of his officers to join the legionaires who came to report the incident. The young man was later taken to the police command clinic where his life was saved.”
Ekoh-Clement said that information so far gathered, suggests that while Afamefuna was on the streets, he was exposed to cultism and that he might have attempted to take his own life because he could not meet up with the demands of the cult group.
“The way he was dressed doesn’t suggest somebody finding the world very difficult because he was wearing good dresses,” he said.
The state police command who said they are investigating the case as Afamefun might have deep rooted issues that forced him to attempt suicide, added that the last phrase of his suicide note, “IN THE NAME OF FUTA-JALUN my mother high temple”, might have something to do with either mysticism or cultism.
