Speaking with the press, Rufiat said her husband had been talking about suicide a few days before he eventually jumped into the lagoon but no one took him serious.
The mother of one said those around only attributed his remarks to the influence of hard drugs.
“My husband’s name is Abdulrahman Odunare Olamilekan. We were also shocked to hear that he jumped into the lagoon. He has been speaking about it for some days but he was not monitored properly. If he was, the case would not be as bad as this,” she said.
“No one took him serious. They all attributed what he was saying to the influence of Colorado (hard drugs), so they didn’t even evaluate what he was saying. He doesn’t take Colorado but he used to take Arizona but it’s been long he took Arizona.”
Rufiat, who hails from Oyo state, said since the incident, she has not received any help. She also called on Nigerians to support her to enable her take care of her late husband’s child.
”Since the incident, I have not seen anyone from my husbands family apart from my family and I have no friends but whatever anyone has to give will go a long way,” she added.
“Before he died, he said I shouldn’t allow his daughter suffer. I plead with all Nigerians to help me.”
