Still on Salaries: Another Civil Servant has Committed Suicide

Another civil servant has allegedly committed suicide in Kogi State. He is 47-year-old Abdullahi Uye Zhiya from Oguma in Bassa Local Council of the state. It was learnt that his frustration might be connected with the non-payment of his salaries for about 12 months.

Close family sources said that for over one year, life had been hard for the deceased. Recall that a director in the Kogi State Civil Service, Mr Edward Soje also allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself on a tree in Lokoja.
