Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) staff, Mr. Rauf Oladejo who committed suicide by jumping into the lagoon on Friday, November 2, 2018 has left his wife, Mrs. Zainab Oladejo and children crying out their eyes over the sad incident.
The deceased we gathered was a driver with the corporation and was newly transferred from the FRCN training school in Shogunle to the Broadcasting House in Lagos.
Sources told us that Mr. Rauf who was a father of eight was on his way to work, driving the company’s car when he suddenly stopped on the third mainland bridge like someone that was pressed and needed to ease himself but only for him to jump into the Lagoon.
Be that as it may, the bereaved wife have now cried out to sympathisers that she cannot give an explanation why her husband would decide to take his own life…
“God is the only one who sees the intention of his heart for choosing to take his own life; I don’t know what could have been his reason. We have been married for over 40 years and nobody ever tried settling a dispute between us.”
“When he was leaving for Lagos on Sunday, he prayed for us and one of the children followed him to the park. He was a peace-loving man; he was not in the habit of fighting with anyone and anytime he had money, he would buy things for all the children around.”
Also, one of the deceased sons, Sheriff, said; “My father was not sick and he was not thinking about anything. If he was thinking about anything, he would have told me, because he did not hide anything from me.”
“He did not have any money issue too, because if he needed money, he would call to tell us. Even the day his body was retrieved from the lagoon, more than N10,000 was recovered from his pocket. I believe that what is hidden to us as humans is open to God.”
