This is really a new one in the realm of suicides, as a 70-year old woman, Saratu Rahman, aka Iya Ogbomoso, from Offa, in Offa Local Government Area of Kwara State, who used a razor blade to slash her throat, made a confessional statement on tape where she stated:

“I used a razor blade to cut my throat because God told me to do so. Please allow me to die; I don’t want to live in this world again.”

The septuagenarian mother of four was said to have killed herself at her residence.

A neighbour of the Rahmans, said when she and other neighbours heard the woman's screams, they rushed to her room and saw her in a pool of blood.

“When we got into the room, we saw Mama in a pool of blood. We invited the police. She was rushed to the Lamode Hospital. The policemen later found the blade that Mama used to cut herself.”

She was rushed to a hospital where she was treated for two days before she eventually gave up the ghost.
