My son was killed – Mother of 26-year-old man who allegedly committed suicide in Jos over N300,000 debt says
The mother of Abdulmalik Kabir Garba, who allegedly committed suicide by drinking sniper has claimed that her son was murdered.
Malik allegedly took his own life in Dilimi area of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State on February 21, because he was unable to pay back the N300,000 he borrowed from his childhood friend.
Speaking to Daily Trust on Monday, March 1, the mother of the deceased, Amina Ishak, claimed the circumstances surrounding her son’s death were questionable and only the police could unravel the cause of his death.
“There was no any pressure or disturbances in him before and even the day of his death because, on that very Sunday, he went for morning football training as he used to do and returned home. He took his bath and went to his business area and only for me to be called that my first son was dead after taking him to the hospital,” she said.
She insisted that there was no reason for someone to say that he drank Sniper and died instantly.
“Two days before his demise, my son returned from Bauchi State where he collected his diploma certificate at Federal Polytechnic, Bauchi, to proceed with his education. This is somebody who has prepared to proceed to a university. So, the whole thing is mysterious and we call on the security to investigate the matter and bring to book whoever is involved in the killing.”
