    Published By:

    An accountant with telecom giant, Globacom, Folake Abiola, the lady who reportedly committed suicide last Friday, in her apartment No. 1 Abayomi Kukomi Close, Osapa London, in the Lekki area of Lagos, had some undisclosed medical conditions, apart from depression. She was a chatted accountant and worked with one of the telecommunication companies over 15 years.

    This was confirmed by some residents of the area yesterday, However, her immediate family members refused to speak when contacted, stating rather that they were trying to heal from the devastating impact of her demise.

    The State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin said, “The moment the police in that area were alerted, they arrived at the scene and met the woman lifeless on the floor. A bottle of insecticide was also found by her, apparently, she had ingested that insecticide.

    “The family members that were there officially wrote to the divisional police officer requesting for the release of the corps to enable them to bury her in accordance with Islamic rites and the corps was released to the family on compassionate grounds,” he added.

    One of the tenants, a retired civil servant, Mr. Patrick Olumhense said, “We were just neighbours, not relatives. We didn’t know about the death until her relatives woke us up that morning.  It is a sad tale to recount. She was a very sociable and humble neighbour to us all. But she loved to be on her own.   “She did not have many friends, apart from her younger sister, who used to come and spend some time with her here. She used to live with her younger brother who has built his own house, married and moved out with his wife, but in the last five years, she had been living alone.

    “Quite honestly, she appeared like someone who had mental challenges.  Before her father died, we used to see him rush down to the house on occasions when it seemed she had a kind of attack.  He would calm her down and take her for some kind of therapy and bring her back to start a normal life.

    That happened for quite some time and were managed by the father, until the man died.                 “Since her father died, nobody was playing that role for her, except the younger sister who came once in a while.

    “For us as neighbours, we were aware of this problem. Whenever the attack came, we would contact her sister or brother.  But this time, she didn’t exhibit any symptoms,” said the octogenarian.
