   Suicide in Nigeria! Why it matters – Businessday NG
A man reportedly committed suicide in Bayelsa last week, after losing his boss' N150,000 (one hundred and fifty thousand naira) to gambling in Bayelsa.

The deceased staked the money on a virtual game that lasts less than two minutes and is controlled by computers. The man who was identified simply as Suga used the money realized on the day of the incident to play the virtual game, The Nation reported

An eyewitness said, “Suga, not knowing how to explain the situation to his boss, made him to take his own life.”

This increases the number of people who have died from betting and gambling since last year in the state to three. 

Bayelsa police spokesperson Asinim Butswat said though the police is aware of the incident, it has not been reported officially. 

Butswat said; “The Divisional Police Officer of Bassambri Nembe said the incident was not reported officially to the police. He, however, said they heard about the incident."
