Pastor?s wife and mother of three?hangs herself in Lagos

A mother of three, identified simply as Mummy Pelumi, has reportedly committed suicide at Mangoro area of Lagos State.

The woman, who is also a pastor’s wife, took her life when her husband was on evangelism. Witnesses said the deceased and her children were sleeping in their one-room apartment at Sule Street, Mangoro area of the metropolis, when she hanged herself to a ceiling fan in their room.

It was learnt that it was when the woman’s children woke up that they saw their mother dangling on their ceiling fan. They then raised the alarm which attracted neighbours and some mechanics.

Mummy Pelumi’s mother-in-law, who gave her name as Madam Modupe, said the death of her son’s wife came to her as a surprise. Madam Modupe said that on Friday, before she left for vigil, the deceased was the one who cooked the food everyone ate.

She said: “When we were eating, she told me she just stocked her shop, because of the social activities in our area on Saturday, so that she would not disappoint her customers who might want to buy drinks from her.

“After the vigil, I was still at the church resting when someone came to call me that my son’s wife had killed herself. By the time I rushed down, a crowd had gathered at our house. My son is a pastor and he had gone on evangelism, we decided to leave the deceased till Sunday believing she was going to come back to life.

“I was with her in the room throughout the period monitoring her closely believing that she was going to stand up. But when I noticed she had gone, it was then I called the pastors from our church who came to perform the funeral and she was buried on Sunday.”

Madam Modupe said they were about to bury her when the husband arrived from his evangelism trip. She added: “It was painful, because she was a nice woman to me and everyone that came across her. It is the neighbours who helped me to pacify the husband because he was just crying.    

One of the neighbours, who gave her name as Blessing, said Mummy Pelumi’s death was painful to everyone in the house. Blessing said they were all sleeping when suddenly the first daughter of the deceased rushed out of their apartment and called neighbours to come and look at her mother.

She said: “When we got to their apartment, her tongue had come out of her mouth. The children were asked to leave and the door was locked. Policemen from Isokoko were informed.”

Our student didn’t commit suicide over poor academic performance — OAU

Our student didn?t commit suicide over poor academic performance ? OAU

The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, has denied media reports that a final year student of the Department of English, Grace Opeyemi Dara, committed suicide because of her poor grades.

Grace reportedly drank Sniper and died on August 2nd. 

The spokesman of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, in a statement released on Monday August 5th, said Dara’s academic record was not bad to warrant her committing suicide.

According to Olanrewaju, Dara was residing off-campus and that she first took the sniper on April 22.  The security unit of the institution laterwent to her house, took her to the university health centre where she was referred to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex for better treatment.

“She was treated and discharged home to her parents. She was brought back to the hospital by her parents and readmitted at the Intensive Care Unit of the OAUTHC last Thursday, 1st of August and she unfortunately died the next day.

Miss Dara is on a Cummulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 2.68 which qualified her, at least, to be an average student on a 2 – 2 class of grade. It is, therefore, our firm belief that a student who was on Second Class (Lower Division) cannot be said to be poor academically, talk less of committing suicide because of such,” he said.

Woman hacks her husband to death, strangles her two children before hanging herself

Woman hacks her husband to death, strangles her two children before hanging herself

A Kenyan woman who hacked her husband to death and strangled her two children before hanging herself have been laid to rest alongside other family members.

The family of four were all laid to rest on Thursday at Lang’ata Cemetery, Nairobi.

Joyce Wanjiru, 30, reportedly hacked her husband, Joseph Gitau with an axe in the back of the head and stabbed him in the back with a knife at their home in Thome 5 Estate, Nairobi. Gitau’s body was found on the bed.

Wanjiru also strangled their two children. One was found on a couch while the other child’s body was discovered on his small bed.

The woman who has been with her husband for 10 years was later found hanging from a roof beam.

The motive behind the killings which happened on July 9 in Thome 5 Estate is still a mystery, but it was claimed that the husband was constantly battered by his wife, Joyce Wanjirui.

According to his longtime friend, Steven Kariuki, Gitau was too reserved to say what was really on his mind as he was beaten and humiliated by his wife.

“You would never notice if Gitau had problems or not. I am so mad at him, even if he’s dead. He didn’t speak to me. I didn’t know he had problems. We wouldn’t be where we are right now if he did.

Kariuki said his “heart is very broken as we started our friendship back when we were children. Our parents are friends. I used to pass by his workplace quite often and discuss things then go back to our businesses,” Kariuki said at the burial.

Computer programmer allegedly commits suicide after securing Canadian visa to relocate from Nigeria

Computer programmer allegedly commits suicide after securing Canadian visa to relocate from Nigeria

Muyiwa Olushola, a computer programmer has thrown his family into mourning after he allegedly committed suicide by taking a drink suspected to be laced with an insecticide, Sniper, at Mosadolorun in the Iba Local Council Development Area of Lagos State.

His neighbours said that the deceased’s mother had gone for a vigil, leaving him at home with his father, Segun, and sister, Tosin, when he suddenly started screaming for help around midnight, but efforts to immediately gain access to his room proved abortive.  Eventually, the door to the room was broken down and upon entry, Muyiwa was seen lying unconsciously on the floor with a foamy substance coming out of his mouth.  

According to a report by Punch, the 33-year-old was reportedly rushed to a hospital for medical aid but he died on the way. Investigation was said to have revealed that the deceased allegedly consumed a drink suspected to have been laced with Sniper, as a bottle of an alcoholic drink, two bottles of the insecticide and a cup were found on the floor of his room.  

At the moment, the house where the deceased lived with his parents and sibling has been locked. One of the neighbours who did not want to be identified, said the scream of Muyiwa’s father and his repeated banging on the door alerted her and others to the incident, adding that it took about an hour before anybody could gain access to the deceased’s room.

The neighbour said, “Around midnight on July 1, I heard Muyiwa’s father screaming his name and asking him to open the door, so I quickly alerted my husband, who calmed me down saying the noise could be due to a minor issue. But when the man continued screaming and banging on the door, we had to rush out to find out what was happening, and when we got to their apartment, we saw the father trying to force his way into Muyiwa’s room.

“The sister, Tosin, said they were inside when they suddenly heard the deceased screaming for help, but they could not enter his room, because he had bolted it from behind. It took over an hour before the door was opened and we saw Muyiwa lying helplessly on the floor and vomiting a foamy substance. We also saw an alcoholic drink, two bottles of Sniper and a cup. From what we gathered, that was the mixture he drank.” 

A resident of the area, who identified himself simply as Kamoru, said Muyiwa’s death could be linked to depression, adding that the incident had prompted his family to temporarily relocate to another location.  

A close friend of the deceased, Babajide Adekunle, said Muyiwa had just been granted a Canadian visa and was scheduled to travel in October before his death. Adekunle said;

“He went to Cyprus for his master’s and obtained a visa to travel to Canada recently after being denied on two previous attempts. We learnt that he was supposed to travel in October; we are really unhappy that he took that kind of decision. He told us that his parents had been frustrating him at home and he decided to leave the house, but his mother disagreed with the idea.  

“He had even rented an apartment, but instead, the parents suggested that he should stay in another house that they built. They were overprotective of him, because he was their only surviving son after his younger brother, Seun, died some years ago. Now, he is gone and they are left with only Tosin. May God give them the fortitude to bear this loss.”
