60yrs Old Man Kills Himself Over 'Severe Hunger' In Delta



A sixty-year-old man, Okporo Arigo, has reportedly committed suicide in a bush at Uwheru in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State because of “severe hunger”.
The late Arigo was said to have left a suicide note, which said he was abandoned by his brother while he had nothing to feed on.
A source, who spoke in confidence, told TheNation that the late Arigo left behind a sick wife and an 
unspecific number of children.
He said the late Arigo had a younger brother, who is a councillor, but had not been paid in the last 10 months by the state government.
The source added:
“I don’t think the man would have died if the state government had been paying the councillors their salaries. I believe the payment was part of what that led to the death of the councillor’s brother.”
Efforts to reach the councillor and the community leaders to confirm the incident were unsuccessful last night, TheNation reports.
But a community youth leader confirmed the incident, saying Arigo’s death was painful.
