Olubunmi Uko, said to have walked out of her home in Somolu one of her sons after leaving a suicide note, was still unknown at press time.
The older children, Iyiola and Toni, allegedly woke up later to find a suicide note written by their mother.
“She said she was tired of life. She also said that by the time the letter would be seen, she would have ended inside the belly of a shark. “She had always complained of dwindling business due to high exchange rate. At a point, she complained that she owed people and had no means to pay back.
She also said that she borrowed half a million naira to offset the loan, but decided to use it on her business with the hope to realise some gain, but that the money ended up sinking in the business.”A relative, who simply gave his name as Folu, told Vanguard: “She addressed the suicide note to her children, her mother and to any other person concerned.
