A fresh detail has emerged on the sudden demise of the 45-year-old Telecommunication Glo Accountant, Folake Abiola, who committed suicide at her abode at Osapa London in the Lekki axis
The spokesperson for the Lagos State Police Command, Benjamin Hundeyin confirmed that Folake Abiola committed suicide by allegedly drinking a ‘chemical substance’ on Friday, at her residence.
He added that the deceased had since been buried after the family requested her corpse.
‘’It’s true, the police were there. She drank pesticide(name withheld to discourage more usage).
The family initially wrote to the police to demand her body and was released on compassionate grounds. She has since been buried on May 27.
‘The whole family came together to request for the body. It’s confirmed that it was suicide; she drank pesticide. The bottle was on the floor ‘’., he told Sahara reporters.
AA colleague of the deceased, who spoke to PUNCH said Abiola has been suffering from depression for years, adding that the news of her death was shocking.
Contrary to claims online, that Abila committed suicide owing to loneliness, and lack of a husband, among others, the colleagues said her associates knew that she had been in romantic relationships, adding that she ended them owing to depression.
The source said,’’ she had been suffering from depression for many tears and her death has nothing to do with loneliness or lack of a husband or sex. Within the last seven years, I know she was in a relationship twice.
‘’She ended those relationships on her own because of depression., she said.
She did not want to bring someone else into her life when she could not take care of herself. She was going through extreme depression, but people that did not know what she was going through have been posting rubbish online’’.
A source said the deceased worked with Glbacom Limited, adding that she was on leave when the ugly incident took place.
