Awka residents in Anambra state on Monday night rescued a 27-year-old woman who dropped a suicide note threatening to commit suicide, reports GISTOK.
The woman, who bears the name: Praise Eberechi Eze had posted on Facebook, saying she would kill herself and her two-year-old son.
A source said that Praise had been in an abusive marriage and had returned three times to her parents, who sent her back, asking her to return and make her marriage work.
Narrating his terrible experience on his Facebook timeline, Eberechi wrote in April this year: “We live in a society where nobody cares. You live in an abusive marriage; nobody cares — community, friends, and family.
“They tell you to pray and endure while the assault is increasing. You pack home, and they tell you to come back and make your family work. Verbal abuse increases, they call you a bad wife, bastard, you smell terrible, you feel you got a 2.1 at school, come and get money for the authorization.
“When the family fails you because you are married, damn the consequences, take your life and serve the sentence in jail.”
A source said that the last paragraph of her publication may have been her alleged ploy to murder her husband, but then chose to take her life and that of her son.
Eberechi reportedly dropped a suicide note on Monday morning that said: “Soon I will die and take my little man. I will not leave you to the suffering of verbal abuse, we will go to a place where there is unlimited peace. When I die, don’t write an epistle for me. When I die, I should be buried in my father’s house to avoid havoc. When I die, don’t cry, because everything is fine in life and death. ”
GISTOK learned that she deleted the post minutes later, causing fears that she had left to hurt herself, and refused to receive calls from friends.
Facebook users who had previously taken screenshots of her post sent her, asking for help for her, until Monday night when GISTOK learned that she had been tracked to a primary health center in Okpuno in Awka, where some residents who rescued her had taken her. for treatment
A Facebook user, Cynthia Raphaels, who disseminated the publication for the first time, said in a subsequent publication that she had been tracked to the health center and had detailed two volunteers to monitor her.
At the time of submitting this report, GISTOK was still looking for the woman, whom some Anambra residents promised to help rehabilitate.
