Speculations have it that she committed sui-cide owing to depression as she is unmarried and was without a child.

Speaking to PUNCH, a colleague of the deceased however refuted such speculations, arguing that Abiola have been battling depression for years before her demise.

“She had been suffering from depression for years and her death has nothing to do with loneliness or lack of a husband or se-x. Within the last seven years, I know she was in a relationship twice.


“She ended those relationships on her own because of depression. She said she did not want to bring someone else into her life when she could not take care of herself. She was going through extreme depression, but people that did not know what she was going through have been posting rubbish online.


“She was a senior accountant at a telecoms firm and we are colleagues. She took her life herself and was buried that same Friday as she was the only Christian in her family.”


The colleague described Abiola as an angel, a conscientious accountant and a lover of Christ, who was liberal in giving, adding that she had been saying she wanted to end it all before she took her life.


“In Nigeria, we don’t pay attention to mental health; a lot of people are going through depression and it is not necessary that it has to be caused by anything,” she added.


“She recently celebrated her 45th birthday. She was not talking to people; she always kept to herself,” another the source said.

Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said;

“The moment the police in that area were alerted, they arrived at the scene and met the woman lifeless on the floor. A bottle of insecticide was also found by her, apparently, she had ingested that insecticide.

“The family members that were there officially wrote to the divisional police officer requesting for the release of the corpse to enable them to bury her in accordance with Islamic rites and the corpse was released to the family on compassionate grounds.”
