A 17-year-old girl couldn’t stand the news that she was pregnant, therefore she resorted to taking her life by drinking Sniper insecticide in the Igando area of Lagos State.

In her suicide note, she stated that her grandmother told her to go and live with the man responsible for her unborn child.
According to a source, the deceased started staying with her grandma in Mofoluwasho close, Igando, at the age of 3 after her mother’s death.
The sourced said: “She had been living with her since then. The woman is a trader in Ikotun market and that was how the girl met with a guy whom she started dating. Whenever the woman was not around, she would bring the man home and he would spend the night with her.”
Residents said the victim began foaming in the mouth at her boyfriend’s house and was rushed to the Igando General Hospital where she was confirmed dead.
Her boyfriend reportedly filed a report to the police after he found the suicide note and the cops have since arrested the grandmother.
