She said:

“My husband’s name is Abdulrahman Odunare Olamilekan. We were also shocked to hear that he jumped into the lagoon. He has been speaking about it for some days but he was not monitored properly. If he was, the case would not be as bad as this.
“No one took him serious. They all attributed what he was saying to the influence of Colorado (hard drugs), so they didn’t even evaluate what he was saying. He doesn’t take Colorado but he used to take Arizona but it’s been long he took Arizona.”

The call for help

Rufiat, who hails from Oyo state, said since the incident, she has not received any help. She also called on Nigerians to support her to enable her to take care of her late husband’s child.
