Less than two weeks that a lady jumped into the lagoon in Lagos, over issues she had with her boyfriend, another lady from Ondo State, Motunrayo Balogun, attempted suicide after her boyfriend allegedly dumped her.
The lady, who is a hairstylist, was said to have consumed poisonous substances but was rushed to a hospital by her mother.
Sources said Moruntayo took the decision to end her life after her boyfriend told her he was tired of the relationship.
The source said it was her mother who found her lying on the floor unconscious with an empty bottle of poison in her hands.
She rushed her to the nearest hospital where she was revived.
A friend of Motunrayo, who pleaded anonymity, said she withdrew to her shell and turned an introvert.
“I don’t understand why she did such a thing to herself.
“The man does not give her breathing space. He is always monitoring her movement and everything she does. Yet, he doesn’t have regard for her.
“Even when she comes to work, three hours later, you will see him drive down to check up on her every now and then.
“I’m sure it might be because most guys stay away from their girlfriends when the festive period is approaching so as not to spend money on them, only for them to reconcile after New Year celebration. Maybe that was the case. I can’t really tell. Because I don’t see any reason for the break up now.
“But the reason she took that step is what I don’t understand. For me, no man is worth such a decision. It was a very bad idea,” she lamented.
