A despondent palm wine tapper, identified as Nwandu (Surname withheld) operating in Ugbolu community near Asaba, yesterday, allegedly committed suicide following his inability to make love to his wife in the last few weeks.
Reports said that the palm wine tapper, a native of Ogbaru in Anambra state, has been married to his wife for over seven years before his sex organ began to disappoint him.
Sources said that the man has been having problem with his genitals since the beginning of the month of February this year.
The resultant failure on his part to satisfy his wife sexually, gave rise to repeated quarrels especially as he blamed malaria for his dereliction of duty.
It was gathered that the situation persisted until last Thursday night when he allegedly made another failed attempt.
Sources revealed that the palm wine tapper in the early hours of that fateful day had complained of stomach discomfort to his wife who unsuspectingly gave him tissue paper for toilet.
But the near hopeless dashed into the bush path where he allegedly hung himself on a tree.
Police authorities in the state confirmed that the body of the palm wine tapper has been deposited at the Federal Medical Centre Mortuary for autopsy and added that investigation was ongoing.
