Woman commits suicide four months after bearing twins

Post by SKOOKID on Fri Aug 09, 2013 7:32 pm

A nursing mother has committed suicide, four
months after giving birth to a set of twins, on
Oremerin Street, Ladilak, Somolu, Lagos State.

The woman, Mrs. Muji Kazeem, a hairdresser,
was found dead in a well on Tuesday morning.
The well was located two houses to the
apartment that Muji and her husband,
Adewale, were staying.

Our correspondent, who visited the Kazeems,
learnt that the twins came after five years of

Kazeem, 28, said his wife was found dead in the
well two days after she was declared missing.
He said, “We were together on Sunday night
having prayers around 9.30pm. Then, the
babies started crying, so I told her to go and
breast-feed them.

“By the time I finished praying, she had slept off
with the twins on the bed. I spread a mat on the
floor by the entrance and slept off.

“Muji woke up around 11.30pm and went
outside. One of my friends told me that he saw
her at that time taking cool air before he went
inside to sleep.”

Kazeem said he was awaken by the wailing of
the twins around 1am. He said he searched for
their mother without success.

When the day broke, Kazeem raised the alarm
that his wife was missing. The neighbourhood
was said to have been thrown into confusion as
a search party was organised to look for her
without success. The matter was later reported
at the Pedro Police Station.

Kazeem said, “We saw her clothes near the well
on Monday night and became hopeful. We
intensified prayers for her. But it was 7am the
following day that a woman, who wanted to
draw water from the well, observed that the
drawer did not get water. She got a torchlight,
pointed it down the well and saw the swollen
corpse of my wife.”

He said Muji had been buried at the Atan
Cemetry at Yaba in line with Islamic rites.
“We buried her at the Atan Cemetery after
obtaining police report. My mother has taken
the babies for care,” he said.

Kazeem described his late wife as a gentle and
cheerful woman, who never fought or
quarrelled with anyone since he met her.

He said, “We have never had any reason to fight
or disagree. I don’t know if she offended
anyone who decided not to forgive her. But for
me, I have taken this as my destiny.”

However, PUNCH Metro learnt that the
deceased had been depressed a few days
before her death.

A source within the area, said the 25-year-old
mother, could sometimes be lost in thought for
several hours and would not respond to
greetings until people shouted at her.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi
Braide, promised to get back to our
correspondent when she was contacted on the
