A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Minna has
ordered that a student, Suleman Ayuba, 19,
who pleaded guilty to attempted suicide by
taking rat poison, be remanded in prison,
pending sentencing.

Magistrate Hauwa Yusuf, who gave the order
after Ayuba pleaded guilty, fixed Sept. 16 for
sentencing. Ayuba was charged with
attempted suicide, contrary to the provisions
of Section 231 of the Penal Code Law of
Niger State.

Th3 Prosecution Counsel, ASP Daniel
Ikwoche, told the court that one Badamosi
Abdullahi reported the matter on August
23rd. Ikwoche said the complainant, a
noodles seller, alleged that on the same day
at about 7 p.m., the defendant bought some
and poured a pack of poison in it and ate it.

He said that the defendant became
unconscious afterward and was taken to the
hospital where he was revived. When the
charges were read to him, Ayuba pleaded
guilty and begged the court for leniency.

”I WANTED TO TAKE MY LIFE
BECAUSE LIFE IS TOO HARD FOR
ME AS AN ORPHAN,” he told the court.
