Why An Accountant Committed Suicide As Revealed By Neighbors

Neighbors of a now deceased accountant in Lagos State, Afolake Abiola (47) has revealed to reporters that she allegedly committed suicide because of an undisclosed ailment.

The deceased accountant who worked with a telecommunication company for over 15 years, allegedly took her life last Friday where she lived at 1Abayomi Kukomi Close, Osapa London, in Lekki area of Lagos.

A co-tenant, Mr Patrick Olumhense, disclosed that the deceased Abiola suffered from an ailment resulting from depression.

In his words:

We were just neighbours, not relatives. We didn’t know about the death until her relatives woke us up that morning. It is a sad tale to recount. She was a very sociable and humble neighbour to us all. But she loved to be on her own.

“She did not have many friends, apart from her younger sister who used to come and spend some time with her here. She used to live with her younger brother who has built his own house, married and moved out with his wife. But in the last five years, she had been living alone.

“Quite honestly, she appeared like someone who had mental challenges. Before her father died, we used to see him rush down to the house on occasions when it seemed she had a kind of attack, he would calm her down, take her for some kind of therapy and bring her back to start a normal life.

“That happened for quite some time and were managed by the father until the man died.

“Since her father died, nobody was playing that role for her, except the younger sister who came once in a while.

“For us as neighbors, we were aware of this problem. Whenever the attack came, we would contact her sister or brother. But this time, she didn’t exhibit any symptoms.”
