In a suicide note left behind after the couple took in a sniper (deadly medicine use to kill rodents), they blamed their tribes for their death.

They both hail from Anambra State in Nigeria but belong to different tribes. Against tradition, they fell in love with each other.

Although they knew the custom, they disregarded it and dated for 6 years until they were ready to marry.

All plans have been made according to the couple and the couple has planned their future but their family and tribes said no.

They were told the marriage won’t be permitted on tribal grounds. They fought all they can but they were resisted by their families.
