Mrs Lovina Odo, a 38-year-old petty trader in Anambra has committed suicide by hanging at No. 1, Ukpaka lane, Umusiome village, Nkpor-agu near Onitsha.

Mr Okechukwu Odo, the husband of the deceased, said he and Lovina had been married for over eight years without a child.

Odo, a car washer, said he returned home from work at about 6:30 p.m. and met sympathisers around his one-room apartment.

“I left home for work that morning after taking my breakfast; she had asked that I buy a tuber of yam for dinner when I return.

“When I returned, I saw people gathered around my apartment only to be told that my wife had killed herself,” he said.

Odo stressed that he and the deceased had no misunderstanding that could have led her to commit suicide.

The Divisional Police Officer of Ogidi, CSP Hassan Musa, confirmed the story, and said that the corpse of Lovina had been deposited at the Mortuary of Iyienu Mission Hospital.
