According to a resident of the Akpehi community, where the incident took place, the teenager was devastated after her lover boy, a pork meat seller in the local Wurukum Market in Makurdi, refused to accept responsibility for the pregnancy and instead, got another girl pregnant and presented her to his family as his wife to be.

After several attempts to get the man to accept her pregnancy, Beer, who could not come to the fact that her boyfriend rejected her, reportedly drank a poisonous substance suspected to be Sniper, a very powerful insecticide.
