A relative told Vanguard that she addressed the suicide note to her children, her mother and to any other person concerned.

She said nobody should bother to look for her, that she was going to jump into the river and end it all. “She said she was tired of life. She also said that by the time the letter would be seen, she would have ended inside the belly of a shark.

Another relative, Mimnimah Uko, who identified the missing woman as her cousin-in-law, wondered why she would allow herself to be overwhelmed by the issues of life to the extent of taking such decision as solution.
