“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.”
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of Lagos state police command SP Benjamin Hundeyin said, “When the policemen got to the scene, her family members were there and they official requested that the corpse be released to them to enable them to bury her according to Islamic rites.
