A 29-year-old  student of Waziri Umaru Federal Polytechnic, Birnin-Kebbi, and resident of Badariya area identified as Solomon Benedict, has committed suicide over his financial plight.

According to reports, Benedict allegedly mixed some substances believed to be insecticide with yogurt and drank it. His friends were unable to rescue him until his condition became worse.

Speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, one of his friends said:

“We noticed he was no longer at ease. He was holding his tummy and we later learnt that he pour some insecticide into his drink. He died before we could stop him.”

It was gathered that Solomon died as his friends were rushing him to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

A female friend of the deceased in Jega town, also said

“For some time now, he had been telling me he would kill himself if his financial situation did not improve. But I never believed he meant it. I remember whenever he visited me at Jega, he always lamented over his financial predicament and I would give him some money to transport himself back to Birnin Kebbi and thereafter he would tell me he would kill himself one day if his situation failed to improve. I was shocked when a friend called me from Sokoto that Solomon had killed himself.”

Kebbi State Police Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Nafiu Abubakar,  confirmed the incident to newsmen on Tuesday

“Yes, we are aware of the incident. The boy was 29 years old. He committed suicide at Badariya area of Birnin Kebbi” he said.

Arsenal complete David Luiz transfer from Chelsea

Arsenal have completed the signing of David Luiz from Chelsea in an £8million deal.

The Brazilian defender has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Gunners after he expressed his desire to move across London.

Luiz only penned a new two-year contract at Stamford Bridge earlier this year, having impressed under Maurizio Sarri last
term.

But after being an unused substitute in last weekend’s final pre-season friendly against Borussia Monchengladbach, he feared being only a bit-part player under new boss Frank
Lampard.

Thus, after issues at the club’s Cobham training base earlier this week, Lampard gave the green light to letting Luiz depart.

Luiz did not train with the Chelsea first team on Wednesday before he finalised his move across London.

He will wear the Jersey number 23 for the upcoming season.

And, in a statement on their official ​website, the Merseyside club confirmed: “Alex Iwobi has signed for Everton from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee after agreeing a five-year deal until the end of June 2024.
“Meanwhile, Everton boss Marco Silva explained: “Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton. He is a direct and skilful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.

“He is still young but already with a lot of top-level experience – 100 Premier League matches, more in Europe and many international games.

“It was important for me to have one more quality option for our attacking positions to add to what we have with Richarlison, Bernard and Theo Walcott.
