Teenager commits suicide over pregnancy rejection in Lagos

A 17-year-old girl, (first name withheld) Saka has died after drinking local insecticide, Sniper in Igando area of Lagos State. Lagos Metro gathered that the victim allegedly blamed her grandma for her death in a note which she left behind.

The elderly woman was arrested after the deceased's boyfriend had reported the case at Igando division.
A source explained that Saka was taken to her grandma’s house in Mofoluwasho Close to live with her after the death of her mother because she was the only child of her parents. Saka’s mother died when the victim was only three years old.


A source disclosed that “The grandma insisted that she moved out of the house to her boyfriend’s house. The woman packed her luggage outside the gate and the girl angrily left the house, took Sniper and drank it,” he said.

Residents said the victim began foaming in the mouth at her boyfriend’s house and was rushed to the Igando General Hospital where she was confirmed dead. When the boyfriend saw the suicide note, he was said to have reported to the police.

A resident said,

“The girl and the boyfriend loved each other. The man did not even reject the pregnancy. It was from the suicide note that the boyfriend saw that the girl accused her grandma of causing her death. He reported to the police with the note in his hand.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incident. She said Saka’s corpse had been deposited in a mortuary for autopsy and investigation is still ongoing,”
