He said a note Edet left behind before taking his life has linked his action to Nigeria’s bad economy.

He told Punch that the deceased, who was married with 2 sons, had often complained about the poor state of the economy.

He said,
“Jolly Boy, who deals in Ogogoro, cigarettes, and other stimulants, decided to cut short his life when it appeared he could no longer run his family with the meagre earnings from his trade.

“He was a very sociable man and always shared his thoughts on issues. I don’t know why he should consider suicide as the last option to escape from these hard times.”

A teacher in the town, Mfonobong Ekpe, said,

“He used to complain that his petty business could no longer cater to his family’s basic needs and he could not afford the school fees of his children.”

Asuquo Bassey, a pastor at his church, said, 

“He was always saying the bad economic policies of the government did not allow common people to afford basic commodities like bread, yam, kerosene.”
Sources from the village said the family members were not that confident enough in informing the police about the incident ... that have occurred ...

He said, 

“The family members were not willing to report the incident to the police in the area. When they discovered his lifeless body, they just wanted him buried and put everything behind them.”
