Yetunde Oladipupo, aka Iyabo, a hairdresser has committed suicide on Onabola Street, Owotutu, in the Somolu area of Lagos State.
Oladipupo took an insecticide, Sniper, on Friday shortly after seeing off some friends who had visited her.
Although the cause of the visit could not be ascertained by our correspondent, it was gathered that the mother of four went to a shop afterward and bought the insecticide.
She was alleged to have taken it and was later rushed to the General Hospital, Gbagada, where she died.
According to reports, she had taken a loan of about N150,000 from a microfinance bank and the creditor had been pestering her to pay.
A resident, who did not want to be identified, said the victim was always depressed because she had no means of repaying the debt.
He said, “Iyabo (Oladipupo) has four children and her husband is based in Abuja. He comes home once in a while. She was a hairdresser and had a small shop where she sold some things.
“She borrowed N150,000 from a microfinance bank. When the pressure became too much for her and she could not pay, she became desperate, drank the insecticide and died.”
