A 23-year-old hairdresser identified as Motunrayo Balogun attempted suicide after she was dumped by her boyfriend who resides around Ijapo Estate in Akure South Local Government Area in Ondo State.
According to the Ondo state government-owned Hope Newspaper, Motunrayo consumed a poisonous substance suspected of being a sniper, but was rushed to a nearby hospital by her mother, where she was resuscitated.
Sources said Moruntayo made the decision to end her life after the boyfriend told her he was no longer interested in the relationship.
A source said it was her mother who found her lying on the ground unconscious with an empty bottle of poison in her hands.
A friend of Motunrayo, who requested anonymity, said she retreated into her shell and turned into an introvert.
“I don’t understand why she did such a thing to herself. The man doesn’t let her rest. He always watches her movements and everything she does. Yet he doesn’t respect her,” she said. she declared.
“Even when she comes to work, three hours later, you’ll see him come down to check on her once in a while.
“I’m sure it might be because most guys stay away from their girlfriends as the holiday season approaches so they don’t spend money on them, only for them to make up after the holiday. New Year’s Eve celebration. Maybe it was. I can’t really say it, because I don’t see any reason for the breakup now.
“But the reason why she took this step is what I don’t understand. For me, no man is worth such a decision. It was a very bad idea,” she lamented.
