Widow commits suicide over death of last child

A mid-aged woman who lost her husband some few months ago, has taken her own life by allegedly taken poison in Osogbo.


The widow, popularly called Iya Sewa, was one of the traders at Ita Efun Garage in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State. She was a popular eggs and popcorn seller at the garage in the town.

According to an eyewitness, the woman allegedly took her own life by taken poison after the death of her last  child, believed to be her only hope.

The news of her demise of the woman spread like wide fire round Ita Efun Garager on the last day of 2017.

Both the traders and motorists in the garage gathered in groups to discuss the sad event.  They described her as very industrious and enterprising woman, struggling day and night to make ends meet since she lost her husband.  They believed she decided to take her own life when the incident of her last child occurred, believing that life would be too hard for her since she would be all alone to face the challenges of life.

All efforts by our correspondent in the town to get her relatives or where she lived in Osogbo proved abortive.
