“We were shocked to see that our son in-law is again taking poison after the wife refused to go back with him, we had to run to the nearby clinic again to seek for them first aid”, said Mr. Etiang.

Mr. Etiang also added that the victim’s life is in critical condition.

“We pray for his life because his condition is not good”, added Mr. Etiang.

“I’m no longer in love with you, you chased me to leave your home, let me start my own life”, said Arionget.

Ms. Mary Acom, one of the community members in Tisai condemned Olupe’s act of taking poison saying he would have engaged more clan leaders into their family matters.
