A 46- year-old mother of three, simply identified as Mrs.

Ajibola, of No 4, Ajebamidele street, Ado Ekiti, has

reportedly committed suicide.

It was learnt that the sad event occurred around 6pm on

Tuesday after “many unsuccessful attempts.”

A neighbour said, “She had informed landlords in the area

of her intention to address a world press conference slated

for 6.30pm that fateful day.

“It was when some of us arrived to listen to what she had

to tell us that we discovered that she was no where to be


“It was when we were searching for her that we saw her

body hung from the roof in her house.

“Many times, she had threatened to take her own life. There

was even a time she said she would jump into the well and

we had to announce to all landlords that they should make

sure that their wells were well secured and covered to avoid

any mishap.”

Another neighbour said the deceased left no trace of suicide

when she saw her on Tuesday morning describing her as

gentle and jovial.

She said, “Its unfortunate that we lost her but I think she

had been sick for some time.”

When our correspondent visited the deceased’s house at

Ajebamidele, the bungalow was deserted and under lock

and keys.

One of the sympathisers said the corpse had been

deposited in the morgue of Mary Assumpta Catholic

Hospital, Ajilosun.

At Ologede Police Station, at Ajebamidele, where the case

was reported, a senior police officer referred our

correspondent to the Police Public Relations Officer, Mr.

Alberto Adebayo, for details.
