How Glo Accountant Folake Abiola Drank Sniper Insecticide And Died

How Glo Accountant Folake Abiola Drank Sniper Insecticide And Died has emerged, details can be accessed below.

BrandNewsDay reports that one of the top accountants with Globacom Limited, generally known as Glo, Nigerian multinational telecommunication, Folake Abiola, has committed suicide at her residence at Osapa London, in the Lekki area of Lagos State, Nigeria’s commercial city.

This online news platform understands that the 45-year-old Glo Accountant Folake Abiola was at her house on Friday when she allegedly drank what was suspected to be an insecticide, known as Snipper.

She was said to have died shortly after, as her family members, friends, and men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) met her lying motionless. A colleague of the deceased said Abiola had been suffering from depression for years, adding that the news of Folake Abiola death was shocking.


A colleague said, contrary to claims online that Abiola committed suicide due to loneliness, and lack of a husband, among others, her associates knew that she had been in romantic relationships, adding that she ended them due to depression.

The source said, “She had been suffering from depression for years and her death has nothing to do with loneliness or lack of a husband or sex. Within the last seven years, I know she was in a relationship twice.

“She ended those relationships on her own because of depression. She said she did not want to bring someone else into her life when she could not take care of herself. She was going through extreme depression, but people that did not know what she was going through have been posting rubbish online.


“She was a senior accountant at a telecoms firm and we are colleagues. She took her life herself and was buried that same Friday as she was the only Christian in her family.”

Late Folake Abiola colleague described Abiola as an angel, a conscientious accountant, and a lover of Christ, who was liberal in giving, adding that she had been saying she wanted to end it all before she took her life.

“In Nigeria, we don’t pay attention to mental health; a lot of people are going through depression and it is not necessary that it has to be caused by anything,” she added.


A source said the deceased worked with Globacom Limited, adding that she was on leave when the incident happened.

“She recently celebrated her 45th birthday. She was not talking to people; she always kept things to herself,” the source added.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the police visited Abiola’s house and met her lifeless body on the floor.


Hundeyin said, “The moment the police in that area were alerted, they arrived at the scene and met the woman lifeless on the floor. A bottle of insecticide was also found by her, apparently, she had ingested that insecticide.

“The family members that were there officially wrote to the divisional police officer requesting for the release of the corpse to enable them to bury her in accordance with Islamic rites and the corpse was released to the family on compassionate grounds.”

Meanwhile, BrandNewsDay Nigeria reports that depression is a leading cause of suicide in Nigeria as experts decry the lack of proper awareness of mental health in the country.
