19-year-old girl commits suicide in Benue State, after her boyfriend left her for another girl.

Jessica Beer, a student of Gyegeh Memorial College Logo1, Makurdi, Benue state, drank substance believed to be poison and was rushed to a clinic in Akpehe, before doctors confirmed her dead on arrival.

She reportedly committed suicide because her boyfriend, Labi, a pork (pig meat) seller at Wurukum Market in Makurdi impregnated and abadoned her and then impregnated another girl.

One of her classmates said, “I was told that the boyfriend (Labi) is a cultist and an armed robber, who had refused to further his education. Why should my friend commit suicide over such a person? I can never do such a thing.”

One of Beer’s teachers, Timothy Tyoyange, said, “Jessica (Beer) was a beautiful young lady and in our last prize giving and graduation day, she contested for Miss Dyege, organised by the college, and won the crown. So, she killed herself at a time she was about to fulfill her dream in life."

The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, confirmed the incident and said nvestigation had commenced. #Elcutiee #news
