Wife of the FRCN staff who jumped into lagoon last week, Mrs Zainab Oladejo, has disclosed the shock the news of her husband’s death plunged her into.
Her husband was on his way to work when he stopped the company’s brown
Toyota Corolla he was driving on the third mainland bridge and jumped into lagoon.
He was recently transferred from the FRCN training school in Shogunle to the
Broadcasting house in Lagos.
Describing her husband as a peace-loving husband and father, Mrs Oladejo could
not explain why her husband decided to take his own life.
God is the only one who sees the intention of his heart for choosing to take his own life; I don’t know what could have been his reason. We have been married for over 40 years and nobody ever tried settling a dispute between us. When he was leaving for Lagos on Sunday, he prayed for us and one of the children followed him to the park. He was a peace-loving man; he was not in the habit of fighting with anyone and anytime he had money, he would buy things for all the children around wife of FRCN staff who jumped into lagoon told Punch.

The deceased eldest son, Sheriff, disclosed that his late father had no illness nor
any financial crisis to make him take his own life.
My father was not sick and he was not thinking about anything. If he was thinking about anything, he would have told me, because he did not hide anything from me. He did not have any money issue too, because if he needed money, he would call to tell us. Even the day his body was retrieved from the lagoon, more than N10,000 was recovered from his pocket. I believe that what is hidden to us as humans is open to God. he said.
