In A Similar Incident… 25 Year Old Nigerian Jumps To Death Under A Train
A 25-year-old Nigerian man, Prince Jerry, committed suicide on January 28 2019, by jumping under a train in Tortona, Genoa, Italy after his request for a residency permit for humanitarian reasons was rejected, Monsignor Giacomo Martino, the head of association Migrants, said on Thursday.
Martino, who is in charge of the association that helps migrants in the port-city, made the announcement in a chat group with his parishioners.
The message was subsequently shared on social media Wednesday night and published by local newspapers on Thursday.
Jerry’s funeral will be held Friday morning, at the Chiesa dell’Annunziata in Genoa.
Meanwhile some of Jerry’s friends have taken to Facebook to mourn him. Read posts below.
