Omolola Atejioye, wife of an employee of the Babcock University, Ilisan-Remo, Ogun, reportedly committed suicide on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old woman was found dangling from a ceiling in their home, located on Ilisan-Remo road, in Ikenne Local Government Area of Ogun.

Ayodele, in a report, said his wife was ill after she became pregnant with their child, but had been well before her death.
He also clarified that his wife was not indebted to anyone and couldn’t had been reason she took her own life.
“We opened a shop in town where she sold animal feeds, and the business thrived. But when she got pregnant, she took ill. Even after she gave birth, the sickness assumed a frightening dimension.
“She was under medical attention at Iloro-Ekiti for about six months, and her condition improved greatly. I had to go and bring her back to Ilisan. But, before she returned, the salesgirl I got for her to handle the shop in her absence made away with over N200,000 from the sales of the feeds
“I had got an additional N300,0000 loan from the cooperative to boost the business again, and I was even planning to plough more money into it.
“Even on the day of the incident, she went to the bank in the morning to deposit some money from the previous day’s sales. So, I don’t really know the reason for this action she took,” Ayodele told the PUNCH.
