An 18-year-old girl identified as Abigail Felix, pictured above, has allegedly committed suicide.
According to reports, the Republic of Benin citizen who was working as a house help for a family in the Alausa, Ikeja area of Lagos state took a deadly DD insecticide without leaving any suicide note.
It was gathered that Abigail who moved in with her employers, the Akinrinmades, two years ago, was responsible for cleaning the house as well as attending to customers at her madam’s shop.
A day before her death, Abigail had reportedly left the house without informing anyone of her whereabout.
After searching for her without any result, a case of a missing person was lodged at the nearest police station.
However, the next day, Abigail snuck into one of the rooms in the house.
When interrogated, she failed to disclose where she was the previous night.
She allegedly ran into another room in the house where she locked herself in and refused to open the door.
Efforts to get her out failed until the door was pulled down and she was found with foamy substances around her mouth with a bottle of the DD insecticide by her side.
She was immediately rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital LASUTH where she was confirmed dead.
The spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, Bala Elkana, who confirmed the news says Abigail’s body has been released to the family as no foul play was suspected.
