“People thought he was high when he spoke suicide” – Wife of man who jumped into Lagos Lagoon

The wife of the young Nigerian man who jumped into the Lagos lagoon, has spoken out about how people thought her husband was high when he spoke about suicide.

Amusa Rafiat, identified as the wife of Olalekan Odunare, said her husband had been suicidal for a long time and had spoken about his intention but no one took him seriously.

In a video shared online, Rafiat said her husband’s attitude had suddenly changed but everyone around him thought he was under the influence of hard drugs.

When asked if her husband takes hard drugs, she said he only used to take Arizona, a variant of marijuana.

She, however, said the late Olalekan had stopped taking the drug for some time before he committed suicide.

She said in the video: “My name is Amusa Rufiat from Oyo State but my parents reside here in Epe. My husband’s name is Abdulrahman Odunare Olamilekan.

“He had been speaking of it (suicide) even for some days but he was not monitored properly. If he was, the case would not have been as bad as this. No one took him seriously. They all thought he was under the influence of Colorado (hard drugs), so they didn’t even evaluate what he was saying. He didn’t take Colorado but he used to take Arizona but it had been long he took Arizona.

“Since the incident, I have not seen anyone from my husband’s family. I have only seen people from my family and I have no friends but whatever anyone has to give will go a long way. Like what he said before he died, that I shouldn’t allow his daughter to suffer. I plead with all Nigerians to help me.”
