Double Tragedy In Edo State: Father Of 3 Commits Suicide, Young Hawker Crushed To Death

There was double tragedy in Benin, capital of Edo state, on Tuesday as a
man, Christopher Duffoir, allegedly committed suicide and an unidentified
teenager who sells beverages in the traffic was crushed to death.
The lifeless body of Duffoir, father of three, who reportedly committed
suicide at his Irhirhi-residence in Benin, was found dangling from a ceiling
fan by his wife, Eno, who said the deceased started behaving strangely shortly
after he returned from Bayelsa State.
It was gathered that the deceased had been taken to a Psychiatric
hospital for treatment in the past, but allegedly escaped back home.

The wife disclosed that she left her husband sleeping in the sitting room
but when she returned, she saw him dangling from the ceiling.
In another development, an articulated truck on Tuesday crushed an unidentified teenager to death at Adesuwa junction, along Sapele road.
It was gathered that the late boy who was said to be a beverage seller
with his brother on the busy road, got knocked down on the verge of collecting
payment after attending to a commuter.
“As the boy sold the drink to the passenger, he had to run to collect his
money. As he was running, the trailer hit him and he fell down, before the back
tyre crushed his head,” an eyewitness said.
