A level 300 female student of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria of Nigerian state Kaduna has reportedly committed suicide after her mother accused her of being a witch.
It is alleged that the deceased has been constantly blamed by her parents for misfortunes that had befallen them which left her distraught and resorted to drinking a deadly poison as the only way out of her predicament.
In a suicide note left by the deceased narrating her story which was sighted by Adomonline.com on Instablog9ja, she wrote:
“Just like I said, if I am no more please hold my family especially my mum and dad responsible. I have tried to be the best I can be, Stayed away from them just because they blame me for their mistakes and they can’t love, help and take care of me like their own.”
“My mum has made life a living hell for me because she is bipolar and frustrated. She accused me of being a witch and a cursed child. I have gone out of my way to take care of my mum by giving her food and money but I still end up being her problem. My brother is responsible for my education and upkeep and the only thing she helps me with is my feeding money.”
My brother can’t stick to his promise anymore because he feels I am not his responsibility and I have my own family. I hope and believe now that I am gone, It will bring them relieve and happiness.”
The deceased however apologized to her friends who she hanged out with in the early hours of the day before her death and updating her WhatsApp stories, telling her friends: “I love y’all” and saying: “Rest girl… You need to rest”
“I am so sorry Collins, I had to leave you this way, Maryam Olayemi you have been more than a bestie to me. I am also sorry to all my friends and well-wishers; I looked happy but was nothing than a broken child. I don’t believe in God anymore, cos I can’t see my purpose anymore.”
I Love you all so much.
