A 23-year-old lady identified as Rejoice has committed suicide by drinking Sniper, a common pesticide, in the Mpape region of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
The Saturday accident plunged the whole city into chaos as residents tried to save their lives.
The Nigeria Gazette found out that the deceased had learned that her boyfriend had an affair with another woman, and decided to take her own life out of rage.

A local resident reported that Rejoice was having financial difficulties catering for her child, who she had for another man.
Her body was said to have been found in the toilet, and she rushed immediately to a local hospital where she was confirmed dead upon arrival.
