A Nigerian woman, Olaitan Adonis, has died by suicide after her boyfriend, identified as Ola Saheed, allegedly used his money to marry another woman.
Olaitan, who had a seven-year-old son, reportedly had a serious relationship with Saheed and saved money in his bank account.
However, he used the money to marry someone else over the weekend, according to reports.
After receiving the news, Olaitan allegedly consumed a poisonous substance and transmitted internal injuries.
Olaitan was with Saheed last Thursday, September 8, and she didn’t know he was getting married this weekend.
On Friday, September 9, a friend of hers told her that Saheed, whom Olaitan reportedly spent the night before, would be getting married on Sunday, September 11.
Heartbroken, Olaitan took the poisonous substance and died the next day, Saturday, September 10.
Olaitan’s boss reportedly said: “My sales lady gave him money from my store for maintenance but he wasted all the money. She even sent him N10k on Friday. called and he said it was none of his business.”
Olaitan’s alma mater paid tribute to him on Facebook and advised people not to kill themselves because of anyone.
