Septuagenarian slits throat in apparent suicide

A 70-year old woman, Mrs. Saratu Rahman, has killed herself with a razor blade.

A neighbour, who identified herself simply as Yetunde, said when she and other neighbours heard Rahman screamed, they rushed to her room and saw her in a pool of blood.

She stated that they contacted the police, adding that she was later rushed to a hospital where she was treated for two days before she eventually died.

She said, “When we got into the room, we saw Mama in a pool of blood. We invited the police. She was rushed to the Lamode Hospital. The policemen later found the blade that Mama used to cut herself.”

Whoever was there at the time could have been suspected for the crime should the septuagenarian not have made a sucide tape.

In the self-confession audio tape, Rahman said, “ I used a razor blade to cut my throat. Please allow me to die; I don’t want to live in this world again.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ajayi Okasanmi, confirmed the suicide.
