August 8, 2015 – Nigerian Woman Kills Herself By Jumping Into Well In Idimu Lagos Because Children Abandoned Her
A depressed woman has ended her own life in Lagos.
The 53-year-old mentally unstable woman identified as Amoke Adeoko reportedly jumped into a deep well in her house at #5 Ajilekege Street in Idimu on Friday night hours after one of her children sent a gift to her through a fellow who lives on the opposite street.
According to sources, Adeoko was abandoned by her children and has been battling serious mental problem before she took the decision on Friday.
Her lifeless body was pulled out of the well around 11:05pm by Alausa Fire Station officials.
Here is what a source close to the deceased said about her death:
“The woman was said to be in control of one of the storey buildings in the compound which her late husband left behind for her. But her children abandoned her because of her state.
“On Friday, one of her children was said to have come around the house and bought a gift for her. Unknown to him, the woman cited him afar with the man sending the gift to her through somebody else and did not come to see her.
“It is probably that the woman might have regained consciousness at that time. She then deliberately jumped into the deep well and was brought out dead,”.
How can they abandon their mother because she’s mentally unstable. Why not care for her???
