Mother of unemployed graduates commits suicide

A mother of two unemployed graduates, whose name was given as Uzoaku , on Saturday hanged herself in Mgbakwu, in the Awka North Local Government Area of Anambra State .

It was gathered that the 66 - year- old woman had complained to some people that she was angry that her two children , who graduated some years back , had not got any job .

A villager, Uche Aniuno , said , “ I saw her about four days ago. She expressed bitterness over the unemployment situation of her two children who graduated some years back . But I didn ’t know that could lead her to this situation .
“ She was a hard -working woman and I won ’t say she was poor . One of her daughters is married with children . We are all surprised that she ended this way. ”

But the younger brother of the deceased , Fredrick Nwenu , told some journalists that his sister had no reason to take her life .
Nwenu , who said he accommodated her late sister for some time , said the news came to him as a shock.
He said, “ My sister had no reason to do this, having trained her two children to university level .

“ She had two children who are university graduates . Her daughter is happily married with kids. So , she had no reason whatsoever to commit suicide . ”
The community was thrown into mourning when the news of the suicide spread , as many described her as an industrious woman.
It was gathered that the deceased hanged herself with a rope which she tied to the burglary -proof bars of the window in her room .

The victim was cooking in her kitchen around 4 pm when she suddenly abandoned the food and dashed to the bedroom where she allegedly took her life .
A neigbour, Isaac Umeh, who described the incident as regrettable, wondered why a grandmother would take such a decision . The deceased was alone at home when the incident happened .

The food she was cooking was still on the fire when she suddenly rushed into the room where she used a rope to hang herself .

“ The whole thing is still a mystery to us because nobody believed a woman of her age with grandchildren could take her own life. ”

Calls made to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state , Nkeiruka Nwode, rang out . A text message sent to her had also yet to be replied to as of press time .
