A top staff of Globacom Limited identified as Folake Abiola has reportedly committed suicide at her residence at Osapa London, in the Lekki area of Lagos State.
Folake (45) who was an accountant at a Globacom limited killed herself by drinking an insecticide last Friday.
Her family members, friends and men of the Nigeria Police Force met her lying motionless.
Confirming the incident, her colleague who spoke on condition of anonymity said Abiola had been suffering from depression for years, adding that the news of her death was shocking.
The colleague said contrary to claims online that Abiola committed suicide due to loneliness, and lack of a husband, among others, the colleague said her associates knew that she had been in romantic relationships, adding that she ended them due to depression.
Confirming the incident to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, said the police visited Abiola’s house and met her lifeless body on the floor.
“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 on 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 corpse to enable them to bury her in accordance with Islamic rites and the corpse was released to the family on compassionate grounds,” he said
