Seven days after marriage, couple commit suicide over wedding debts
A newly wedded couple have allegedly committed suicide over huge debts they incurred during their wedding. According to a twitter user, who shared the story, they swallowed an insecticide, popularly known as sniper. Narrating the incident on Twitter, the lady, simply identified as Tola, said via her handle, @detolah_,
“A lady was indebted after wedding and killed herself after 3 days, the husband drank sniper too and he’s dead now.
