A woman, Mrs. Sekinat Akewusola, on Thursday jumped into Osun River. Reports indicate that the woman jumped into the river from the bridge located at Oke-Gada, Ede, minutes after giving money to some beggars.

Her Veil And Slippers Where She Dropped Them Before Taking The Plunge

Some of the beggars said they saw the woman when she jumped into the river.

Head, Disaster Management Unit, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr. Olaniyi Babalola, confirmed the development.

He told our correspondent that the slippers and a veil worn by the deceased described as a devout Muslim were recovered from the bridge, adding that the search for her corpse was still in progress.

Babalola said, “Her husband said that there was no crisis in the family. He said her wife was taking their first child to school when the incident happened. We gathered that she prayed on the bridge before jumping into the river.”

It was gathered that some passersby and beggars stopped the husband from jumping into the river when he visited the scene.

Babalola said, “Investigation to determine the cause of the suicide is on. We will leave no stone unturned in the process to unearth the cause of the incident.

“We are still looking for her corpse and we have intensified our search in that regard.”
