23 Year Old Student Hangs Himself After Girlfriend Jilts Him, And It Was Father's 10th Year Memoriam

Posted in: ,

23 year old student of Maritime Academy Oron, named Effiong Otu, hung himself with a rope in his home in Calabar on Thursday July 10th after a girl jilted him.

According to his friend, Effiong got involved with the girl early this year and fell madly in love with her. On Wednesday Effiong called him to tell him the girl had broken up with him for no reason and has refused to pick his calls.

The friend advised him to try and see the girl so they could sort things out. He said Effiong called him on Thursday morning to say he had gone to see the girl and she embarrassed him and asked him to leave her alone. The friend said he promised Effiong he would call and speak with the girl but Effiong told him not to bother that he had given up hope.

That same day, the 10th of July which was also the 10th anniversary of his father’s death in a car accident, Effiong hung himself.

After the family prayed and marked the anniversary, and his mother left for work, Effiong went to one of their neighbours to borrow a rope, locked his room door and committed the act.

Before neighbours could figure out what he did with the rope, he had already hanged himself. His room door was later forced to open, and they met his body dangling from the rope he had used for the suicide.

One of his friends who also rushed to the scene said Effiong called him before committing the act, that he should tell his girlfriend, blessing, that she should now be happy that he has killed himself for her.

His last Facebook post also shows he has been depressed.

His friends thought he was joking about killing himself until they heard the news of his suicide.

He was buried the next day.
