Lagos trader commits suicide to spite mother

A 28-year-old mother of two has taken her life her life with a local insecticide, Sniper, to spite her mother, Ifatunmibi Adegbenle, for allegedly maltreating her niece, Rachael Balogun.

The deceased’s husband, Samuel Adeodu, told news men that Ifatunmibi always fought his wife for indulging Rachael’s bad behavior.

Samuel said, “My wife and I had no fight. In fact, we woke up on the same bed on Friday, October 26, when this incident happened. The issue was among my wife, her mother and the niece”.

”I heard her saying that nobody could take Rachael away from her because she had been nurturing her since she was a baby and my wife used to say that she was going to kill herself over it”.

“I was working when I received a call that my wife drank Sniper. They even said before she drank the insecticide, she had taken a local rat poison in the presence of her parents, but people gave her palm oil. It was after that attempt that she went out to buy Sniper and drank it before they could stop her”.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Chike Oti, confirmed the incident, adding that the deceased committed suicide over custody of the niece.
