Mother Of Two Rescued By Neighbours After Attempting Suicide

A woman identified as Mrs. Bukola Agboola was on Thursday rescued by neighbours after attempting suicide at her home at No. 2 Kuburat Lawal Street, Abule-Egba in Agbado Oke Odo Local Council Development Area of Lagos.

According to reports, the mother of two drank sniper on Thursday night on the basis of being frustrated by the complexities of life coupled with lack of basic care.

Fortunately, she was rushed to Ile Epo General Hospital by her husband’s brother who was living nearby.

Speaking on why she tried to take her life, Mrs. Bukola revealed that she was tired about life and maltreatment by her husband, Mr Wasiu Agboola, who she said, used to beat and inflict her with pain.

According to Iya Idris as she is fondly called by her neighbours, her husband forced her on Thursday night to break into her improvised save to buy foodstuffs for her children who barely ate any food days back.

 “Receiving all forms of maltreatment from my husband, who often beats me up any time of the day got to me and I decided to rent an apartment just to safe myself from untimely death.

“Having reported to his father who did not subscribe to his attitude he advised me not to leave my children with him so as to suffer as no adequate care will be given to them.

“I managed to raise some fund through the sale of bottled engine oil, but when my husband left no money for us to feed, I had to break my save to buy them some foodstuffs.

“I decided to commit suicide when I gave it a thought that I cannot go any further in that kind of situation so I drank sniper out of frustration.

“I am tired of the relationship and have reported the issue to the person who is left as my mother since my biological parents died.

“Unfortunately, she is visually impaired and could not prevail on my husband. I am in a tight corner and just need a break”, she lamented.

The victim’s neighbours who pleaded anonymity, confirm the report, stating that the husband, Agboola, often resorts to beating her up anytime they had disagreement especially when he is demanding for sex from a woman who barely had anything to eat.

Most times, the victim gets thrown out on the street in the cold by her husband.

The neighbors noted further that whoever intervened to give succor to the family gets a fight from him.

They further pleaded with government agencies in charge and the human rights group to come to the rescue of Mrs Agboola and her children.

Meanwhile, Bukola was discharged from the hospital and referred to Psychiatric hospital Yaba, for counseling so as to forestall a repeat of the suicide attempt.

She was later taken to her home with no adherence to medical referral.
