Jilted 17-year-old commits suicide in Lagos

By Raph90 - 885 days ago

A Surulere Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos ‎on Wednesday granted N300,000 bail to Emeka Ajezu for allegedly causing the death of his lover who drank sniper insecticide.

Chief Magistrate Ipaye Nwachukwu also ordered the accused to produce two sureties in like sum.

Ajezu, 33, a resident of Monkey Village, Maza-Maza, Lagos, had pleaded not guilty to a charge of “causing death by negligence.”

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Anthonia Osayande, told the court that Ajezu was dating ‎17-year-old Chisome Ekwere, and got her pregnant.

“But when she became pregnant for him, Ajezu refused to take responsibility for the pregnancy because he was planning to get married to another woman.

“Late Ekwere’s elder sister took her to the house of the accused and she started living ‎with him while still pregnant.”

According to him, the accused allegedly told the deceased girl that he was going to the village for his wedding ceremony with another woman.

The prosecutor said that the suicide note the deceased left behind indicated that she drank sniper insecticide because she was heartbroken by Ajezu’s behaviour.

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 227 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2011.

The Court adjourned the case until Dec. 20 for mention.
