man commits suicide in Italy after being denied residency

A 25-year-old Nigerian man has committed suicide in Italy after after his request for a residency permit in the country was rejected.

The migrant identified as Prince Jerry committed suicide by jumping under a moving train in Tortona, Genoa, Italy.

The Biochemistry graduate arrived Italy, by sea, in 2016, after a long trip through the desert to Libya.

Monsignor Giacomo Martino, the head of association Migrants, said on Thursday that Jerry had requested for the permit on humanitarian grounds.

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.

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.
