According to Vanguard, the victim who resides at house 2 Kuburat Lawal street in Abule Egba, drank sniper and was waiting to die when she was found and saved. She was rushed to a hospital where doctors were able to stabilize her.

“Receiving all forms of maltreatment from my husband, who often beats me up any time of the day got to me and I decided to rent an apartment just to safe myself from untimely death. Having reported to his father who did not subscribe to his attitude, he advised me not to leave my children with him so as not to make them suffer as no adequate care will be given to them.
I managed to raise some fund through the sale of bottled engine oil, but when my husband left no money for us to feed, I had to break my save to buy them some foodstuffs. I decided to commit suicide when I gave it a thought that I cannot go any further in that kind of situation so I drank sniper out of frustration.
I am tired of the relationship and have reported the issue to the person who is left as my mother since my biological parents died. Unfortunately, she is visually impaired and could not prevail on my husband. she did try to talk with him but it never works she cries out. I don’t want to marry again this is sad and painful, I have two kids and nobody else to watch them if I die like this, please help I am in a tight corner and just need a break”, she lamented.
According to the neighbours, the husband who is a motorcycle rider, often resorts to beating Bukola up anytime they have a disagreement, this could be for just a little mistake or that she was not paying attention to him, he gets angrier for things concerning his own gain especially when he is demanding sex from her. The neighbours alleged that Wasiu was also in the habit of throwing his wife out of their home into the street after any quarrel. disgracing her in a public place and not minding how she feels, some men are really full of toxic and can go to any length to suffer their spouse.
