Mrs Yusuf Bosede Khadija committed herself as a result of poverty and her inability to provide for her children.
According to reports, the woman, who is thought to be a secondary school teacher, committed the heinous crime by diving into a deep well.
Citizen Nagaziman, who detailed her suffering in the form of an open letter written to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, posted her predicament on Facebook.
The following was written in the post:
“Your Excellency Alhaji Yahaya Bello, one of your “Dearest Teachers” is buried in this well, which you are commemorating today. He stated, “She committed suicide a few days ago, due to starvation and depression caused by a lack of funds to feed and care for her children.”
“Her name is Mrs Yusuf Bosede Khadija, and she is from Okuhapa in the Okehi local government area of Kogi State.
“So many teacher and local government workers that doesn’t have children to take care of them are dieing on a daily basis, most of the news doesn’t make it to the media because some people are so good at hiding the truth from the public
“Sir, I don’t have any personal issue with your person, I only wish that workers welfare should be paramount instead of wasting resources on thing that doesn’t matter.
“So many people come to you with lies just to get favour, double check information and do the right thing sir
“The money they are making you to waste on presidential ambition is enough to take care of teachers and local government workers
“Sir, we don’t rule forever and we don’t live forever. May almighty Allah give you the wisdom to do the right thing. GYB, you are not doing well.”
