Auto Spare Parts Dealer Commits Suicide, List Names of His Debtors

A man, Chinedu Ogwa, 45, has committed suicide in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, for perceived failure to succeed in his business.

Ogwa, who is an auto spare parts dealer, was found dead at his Diobu, Port Harcourt residence Thursday night after allegedly consuming poison.

Chidinma Ogwa, his wife, said the late husband had opened up to her Monday about how he resisted and fought back initial thoughts of taking his own life following what he considered to be his failure in his auto spare parts business at Ikoku, Port Harcourt and poor relationship with some unnamed persons. He told his wife of some frustrations he faced.

Thursday night, Chidinma and her children returned from church service to find her husband lying lifeless in the house, messed self up, and foaming from the mouth.

The wife said that he left a note telling her and the children to forgive him and that he’s been in the business for 15 years but nothing to show for it, so his younger brother should sell everything in his shop within three months to pay those he owed. She also said that her late husband as well listed those holding back his money.

Chidinma, joined by neighbors reported the matter at the Mile 3 Police Station where they were advised to take the corpse to a mortuary.

The State Police Command is however yet to offer an official statement on the matter..
