Hairdresser Reportedly Kills Self Over Loan She Could Not Pay Back

A hairdresser, Yetunde Oladipupo, aka Iyabo, has committed suicide on Onabola Street, Owotutu, in the Somolu area of Lagos State.


PUNCH Metro learnt that Oladipupo took an insecticide, Sniper, on Friday shortly after seeing off some friends who had visited her.

Although the cause of the visit could not be ascertained by punch it was gathered that the mother of four went to a shop afterwards and bought the insecticide.

She was alleged to have taken it and was later rushed to the General Hospital, Gbagada, where she died.

The Ijebu-Igbo, Ogun State indigene, had taken a loan of about N150,000 from a microfinance bank and the creditor had been pestering her to pay.

A resident, who did not want to be identified, said the victim was always depressed because she had no means of repaying the debt.

He said, “Iyabo (Oladipupo) has four children and her husband is based in Abuja. He comes home once in a while. She was a hairdresser and had a small shop where she sold some things.

“She borrowed N150,000 from a microfinance bank. When the pressure became too much for her and she could not pay, she became desperate, drank the insecticide and died.”

Another resident said two friends had visited her a few minutes before the incident, adding that it was after the visit that she decided to take her life.

She said, “Around 7pm, two friends visited her and she saw them off. As she was returning, she went to a shop opposite her house where they sell provisions.

“After picking the insecticide, she asked the shopkeeper for a nylon wrapper, but the shopkeeper declined her request and said she should return the insecticide. She kept it somewhere around her dress and left.

“As she was ascending the stairs to the first floor where she lived, she drank the insecticide. Within seconds, she started feeling uncomfortable and called her five-year-old child to go and get help. She was rolling on the floor and groaning with pain.

“Everybody was alarmed upon seeing the empty container of the insecticide. She was taken to a private hospital on the street, but she was rejected. She was then rushed to the General Hospital, Gbagada, where about five doctors struggled to save her life. She, however, died.”

A top official of the general hospital confirmed that the victim was brought to the hospital around 7pm, adding that she died in the early hours of Saturday.

He said, “The woman was brought to the hospital around 7pm on Friday and her people said she collected a loan which she could not repay. We don’t know the details. Doctors tried to save her life, but she could not make it.”

The Lagos State Deputy Police Public Relations Officer said he would call back after speaking with the Somolu Divisional Police Officer.

He had yet to do so as of press time.

Punch

This is a sad thing to hear and also a very stupid thing to do.
She didn't even think of her kids before committing suicide.
May God come to the children's aid.

Suicide is not an option at all. Its better to run to ur village than commit suicide

SANDY YO said...

Why torturing yourself to die in such manner? Nawa o! Sdk, even though they ban sniper, 'suiciders' will always look for another means. Rat poison was in vogue na before sniper. Ok oo me cant say rip to suiciders. God dey!

A lot of suicidal comments here. Suicide is never ever an option. She just left her little kids for who to take care of? 😢😢 she didn't even think of them?
So her life is worth 150k? There's always an option, even if the microfinance takes over the business. This is just soooo sad.

Whoever Has Had An Encounter With Lapo And Grooming Microfinance Would Know Its The Worst Thing To Be Involved In... If You Cant Meet Up For Just A Week, They'll Nearly Provoke And Disgrace To The Point Of Death... My Mom Was Forced To Borrow From Them After Dad's Death So I Know What I'm Saying... Thanks To God For Faith. Anytime She Remembers That Period, She Still Does Thanksgiving...

My dear, my mum also borrowed from lapo, her saving grace was that I had a better job, I gave her 7k every week, her BP would have sky_rocted, she keep thanking me each time she remembers that period. Debt is from hell.

Affy pls speak for yourself. Nothing is bad in Nigeria to warrant suicide. Overblessing is worrying my own life sef. It's not bad for everyone pls.

Your case isn't the worst. You can still talk about it with a phone on Stella's blog. Nobody is problem free in this world even the richest of them all. That's what I tell myself when anything rears it's ugly head. When there's life, there's hope.

Anonymous said...

My dear, you can never tell. The sniper sef may not kill you. What may kill someone, may just leave you with swollen stomach. Life can have a cruel sense of humor and imagine if you borrowed money to buy the sniper???

The General's Wife said...

Never an option!

Anonymous said...

Hard times are not the culprit. Hard times affect most people. Is everyone committing suicide? People just address their problems differently which is normal.

Abeg if you wan die,die. Coming to a blog to announce it just makes you look like you are seeking attention. Like someone said up there you ban sniper, third mainland bridge nko, fertilizer nko, how many you want ban?

This money is not even money. It's less than $500 US. Imagine not one person in her circle of family and friends could help? No church, nothing. But four children are left motherless in this wretched world. Why has African nations take the joy out of life. She tried, she learned a skill and tried doing something for herself, but still couldn't win at life. One person​ siphoned 43 million US sitting in an apartment and another can't find $500 US to pay back a loan. African leaders have created a hellish existence for their ppl to live under. They have sucked the joy of life out of their ppl, when a mother to four would prefer to die than continue living you know the life has become a burden to the soul. With all the resources available on the continent and the majority of the ppl still strained under the yoke of poverty it is a living miracle when you prosper. The continent should be thriving with healthy trade and prosperity among the nations, with all citizens aving access to a good life. Leaders feeling proud to go sit at a table for leaders when those countries are developed and theirs is a dump. Do African leaders not feel shame when they are always the beggars at the table? Always the tail never the head.
