Ondo housewife allegedly commits suicide over husband’s side chick
A woman identified as Mrs. Bose Odunayo, has allegedly committed suicide in Ondo State over her husband’s side chick.
It was gathered that the incident occurred in Igoba area of Akure, the Ondo State capital.
According to the state-owned newspaper, the mother of four reportedly drank herbicide after receiving a threatening call from one of her husband’s concubines who claimed she got pregnant for him.
It was learnt that drama ensued when the victim’s family suddenly brought her corpse from Akoko for burial at her husband’s residence in Akure, where rituals were performed before the corpse was later buried.
A source told the publication that the deceased who drank the substance in her residence around Igoba area of Akure, immediately headed to her home town in Ifira Akoko, to inform her parents that her husband would cause her untimely death as a result of his womanising.
According to a family source, before the deceased gave up the ghost, she said her husband’s concubine accused her of being responsible for the miscarriage she had.
Another source close to the family told the publication that sometime in 2021, the woman had attempted suicide by taking the same substance, but for the quick intervention of her husband who rushed her to a private hospital for treatment.
However, this time she took the herbicide when her husband was not around.
The husband who is a member of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in Akure said his late wife took the substance and travelled to her parents’ town in Akoko, only for him to hear the news of her demise.
