A Childless woman commits suicide in Anambra (Graphic Photo)



Mrs Lovina Odo, a 38-year-old petty trader has committed suicide by hanging herself with rope tied to a ceiling fan at No. 1, Ukpaka lane, Umusiome village, Nkpor-agu near Onitsha in Anambra.

Lovina Odo committed suicide yesterday, at about 5 p.m.

The husband of the deceased, Mr Okechukwu Odo said he and Lovina had been married for over eight years without a child.

Odo, a car washer, said he returned home from work at about 6:30 p.m. and met sympathisers around his one-room apartment.

“I left home for work that morning after taking my breakfast; she had asked that I buy a tuber of yam for dinner when I return.

“When I returned, I saw people gathered around my apartment only to be told that my wife had killed herself,” he added.

Odo stressed that he and the deceased had no misunderstanding that could have led her to commit suicide.

CSP Hassan Musa,,Divisional Police Officer of Ogidi, confirmed the story, and said that the corpse of Lovina had been removed and deposited at the Mortuary of Iyienu Mission Hospital.

“No suicide note was seen around her but preliminary investigation reveals that she might have committed suicide because she had no child,” Musa said.

    be careful not to judge a pain you never know. sometimes you have to be In someone’s shoes to know exactly how they feel. but our religious leaders have lead many people into more depression as they teach them to live in denial of real situations. it’s common to hear ‘it’s not my portion’ ‘I’m rich’ when in actual sense the problem has come to dwell with you. And in the wake of how deep into the quagmire, with no practical directions, suicide becomes the way out. And people who never cared about the person will be pronouncing judgement on the person. Nobody has the right to take their life nor has God appointed anyone as judge over others.

    People, especially her womenfolks must have mocked her because of her childlessness. Now she is dead. What have you gained, mockers?

    We know is not easy, but why not adopt a child and show the child love while you wait for God’s time. My uncle got married since 1996 no kids they went and adopted a baby we named Favour and now my uncle and his wife have two kids. God’s time is the best.
