Why Folake Abiola, Lagos telecoms accountant, committed suicide


The real facts leading to the death of Lagos telecoms accountant, Folake Abiola, have emerged.

According to Punch, one of Folake’s colleagues said she had been suffering from depression for many years.

The colleague 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.”

Folake Abiola drank what was suspected to be an insecticide on Friday at her Osapa London residence in Lekki.

The 45-year-old accountant reportedly had no child and husband before her death.
