A 25-year-old man, Bulus Asuma, of Angwan Rukuba in Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State committed suicide after he lost two tricycles belonging to his employers to thugs.

Asuma committed suicide in his room when he returned home the day the second tricycle was dispossessed from him by a gun-wielding man.

Family sources said the deceased had collected a tricycle from a woman earlier in the year on hire purchase.

The tricycle was stolen from him and was locked up for a week by the lady who he purchased the tricycle from. The deceased paid for a few weeks and could not continue as he ran out of cash.

according to the report, the deceased had approached another person for another tricycle this time to work and make remittances on a daily basis to be able to raise funds to pay back his former employer. Sadly on October 13, while returning home from work, he was attacked by an armed man who dispossessed him of the tricycle.

His family members claim he returned home and threatened to kill himself but they did not take him seriously, then later was found dead in his room.

The spokesperson of the Plateau State Police Command, DSP Alabo Alfred, who confirmed the incident said the police were investigating the incident.
