A young man in his 20s identified simply as Inalegwu has reportedly taken his own life with a poisonous substance, believed to be an insecticide after he allegedly impregnated his younger sister, Ene.

The ugly incident happened at Adoka, a district in Otukpo community area of Benue State.

It was gathered that the young man has been an object of ridicule in the village following his incestuous act. According to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity, the deceased did not deny nor accept responsibility of the pregnancy but said he owed nobody any explanations over what happened between him and his sister.

The source added that the deceased’s sister, Ene, caused the whole problem as she was always in the habit of sleeping in the same room with her brother Unclad.
