A middle-aged woman, Ometere Aduga who dropped out of Ambrose Ali University has committed suicide in Edo State.
The mother of two, who was heavily pregnant hanged herself(not the one pictured) with a rope she fastened to the ceiling fan in her room.
It was gathered that Ometere had recently visited a private hospital and confided in a nurse her plan to kill herself because of the pregnancy she was carrying.
But she was counselled against the act and told to report back on Monday for medical examination and counselling.
“Ometere was a very brilliant girl who was a 300- level medical student at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, before she withdrew due to health reasons. She also had some mental disorder but later recovered and married. Her husband is not from here, so she has been staying with her parents,” a family friend said.
When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Hilary Udoh, confirmed the incident, saying, “yes, it is true and the parents said they have taken it in good faith.”
