Nigerian Prince Commits Suicide After Being Rejected While Trying to Give Away His Fortune

(AP) Nairobi, Nigeria -- Prince Alab Swalahari was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his palace in Nairobi on Tuesday. A note next to his body stated that he was despondent that no one would accept his attempt to give away his vast riches.

His brother explained, "Alab had converted to Christianity quite some time ago. All he was trying to do was live a Christ-like life! Christ commands us to give our money to the poor. He tried for over 15 years, sending people emails to give away his money, but all he got back was mockery and hate. I guess it finally became too much for him."

Swalahari had recently been the target of a United States-initiated FBI investigation, and Interpol was scheduled to interview him a few days before his suicide.

Said his mother, "I am so incredibly sad. My son! All he was trying to do was give away his money, and the world would not believe him! Why are people so cruel?"

The fortune Swalahari was attempting to give away totaled more than 46 billion Naira, which is approximately 127 million dollars in United States currency. His lawyer remarked, "Obviously there would be some fees for transfer of this large amount of money, but when we asked for the few thousand dollars to make the transfer happen, not one person was willing to do it..... and several dozen people even contacted the authorities!"

Funeral arrangements will be held at Kenyatta Funeral Parlour, 128 Thiika Hwy South, this coming Wednesday.

I don't buy the story line.

Any Christian could point to at least one missionary or missionary board that would be happy to advise and distribute such wealth.

Though many Christians are idealistic, just watching TV for 24 hours would be sufficient (especially this time of year) to get a few ideas.

If I had only known...

I would have never deleted his e-mails.

...and this tragedy would have been avoided.

There’s something a bit odd about this story, but I can’t quite put my finger on it...

Is there a GoFundMe page to cover the funeral costs?

And that's why you are "The Lazamataz"

I wonder how many felt the pucker effect because they hadn't been drawn into the actual schemes....greed is a dangerous thing.

Thanks for the chuckles

I, too, am greatly saddened by this news....

But I could never scrape together the necessary cash to properly invest in this glowing opportunity, only to lose my only chance at scoring riches beyond avarice. Now I shall have to go back to Publishers Clearing House, and try my luck there, along with the Florida Lottery.

Did..did they find a chalcedony jar nearby?
I kinda told a Nigerian prince that I only accept souls in chalcedony jars.

Yes, may the good Prince rest in peace.

I fondly remember his weekly e-mail asking me to send him my bank account number and routing number so he could deposit a million to my account.

Such a sad end for a Spammer who was not!

Fortunately, the Prince left a will and I was named the sole beneficiary. When the check arrives and after a modest donation to FR, I will be handing out money for a small fee upfront.
