Amusa Rafiat, wife of Olalekan Odunare, a diploma holder who jumped into the lagoon has spoken on the tragic incident.
Recall that Naija News earlier reported that a family member of Odunare had revealed that his body has been found.
Speaking further on the incident, Odunare’s wife also said that her husband has been suicidal for a long time and often spoke about it but no one took him seriously.
In a video making the rounds on social media, Rafiat said her husband’s attitude had changed overnight and some people thought he was on hard drugs.
When asked if her husband took any drugs she replied that he did not and only took marijuana in the past.
She said:“My name is Amusa Rufiat from Oyo State but my parents reside here in Epe. My husband’s name is Abdulrahman Odunare Olamilekan.
“He had been speaking of it (suicide) even for some days but he was not monitored properly. If he was, the case would not have been as bad as this. No one took him seriously. They all thought he was under the influence of Colorado (hard drugs), so they didn’t even evaluate what he was saying. He didn’t take Colorado but he used to take Arizona but it had been long he took Arizona.
“Since the incident, I have not seen anyone from my husband’s family I have only seen people from my family and I have no friends but whatever anyone has to give will go a long way. Like what he said before he died, that I shouldn’t allow his daughter to suffer. I plead with all Nigerians to help me.”
