Benue council worker commits suicide over unpaid salaries

By - - [ ]

A worker in Makurdi Local Government Area of Benue State has committed suicide over alleged non-payment of his salaries.

The state’s local government workers have not been paid for about eight months; some claim government is owing them 12 months’ salaries.

Last year, a house wife, who worked with the local government, killed her husband and three children before committing suicide.

A worker in the local government, who spoke in confidence because he was not authorised to address the media on the matter, claimed that the deceased worked in the Agricultural Department.

According to the source, the unnamed local government worker drank acid.

“He drank acid, but it did not react quickly. So, when he came to work on Friday, he was asking some of his colleagues ‘if acid no longer kill people fast’,” the source said.

It was gathered that shortly after taking the substance, he collapsed and was taken to a hospital, where he died.

It was also learnt that the deceased was married and had grown-up children in the university.

He was said to have started experiencing difficulties in meeting up with his family needs.

Last night, police spokesman Moses Yamu, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), said he had not received the report on the incident.

This is a situation of frustration and limit of tolerance... A lot more parent were as well frustrated and weak... They were only living on the hope that there children could make their life better because a lot of parent dreams were already shattered... The children were schooling in a situation where by only Parent and Religious leader could only encourage them of a better life even while they lived worst life while in school... May God bless Nigeria and do all possible things he could to bless our country...
