Housewife commits suicide in front of Police Station, leaves three Children behind

An unidentified woman and mother of three little children in Enugu State has reportedly committed suicide in Enugu.

It was gathered that the woman allegedly ran into a moving vehicle and died instantly, following her husband’s departure from her and their three children due to financial difficulties.

It was further gathered that the incident happened last weekend in front of Ogui Police Station, Enugu.

It was learned that the woman, whose identity was not known and suspected to be suffering from depression, dropped her three young children at the police station, pulled her clothes, and ran naked into a moving vehicle which crushed her to death.


The eldest of the children, when asked about their father, said their father “got lost.”

“She could not give any other information about their family, their town, or residential address”, a police source told the Nation correspondent.

Meanwhile, the wife of Enugu State governor, Mrs Nkechinyere Mbah, has announced sponsorship of a scholarship for the three siblings (under seven years) who lost their parents in mysterious ways.

The governor’s wife announced the scholarship when she paid an unscheduled visit to Ogui Police Station Enugu, where the children were kept in police custody.

Mrs Mbah, who was touched by the pathetic story surrounding the death of the mother of the children, said she would take care of the children and train them from Nursery school to University level.

She announced sponsorship of the children’s education from Nursery school to University level.

She also directed the immediate relocation of the children from Ogui Police Station to a home where the state government will take care of them.

Mrs Mbah urged people who were depressed to seek help and go for counseling to avoid taking drastic decisions.

She also urged the Commissioner for the Ministry of Children, Gender and Social Development, Mrs Ngozi Enih, to intensify sensitisation and counselling of people, especially depressed persons to help them come out of the situation.
