Married Woman Found Inside A Well, 4 Days After She Disappeared by nairaway(m) : 10:25 am On Mar 29, 2016
Mrs Adeyemi, who was married with two children, was said to have disappeared from the house four days earlier and after series of search, she was declared missing.
Sadly, her bloated remains were found on Sunday inside a well by a resident who quickly raised the alarm, drawing the attention of other people.
Policemen from the Isheri division and officials of the Lagos State Fire Service were invited to the scene. Her corpse was thereafter recovered and deposited in a mortuary.
According to Punch, it took combined efforts of firefighters from the Ikotun and Alausa stations to remove the body from the well.
The Director of the state fire service, Rasak Fadipe, said the woman was n*ked when she was removed from the well. "We discovered that she was unclad, except for the pants she was wearing.”
Fadipe said it appeared like a case of suicide but no one could tell why she decided to take her life.
Horrified residents, friends and family members of the victim were said to have broken down in tears at the scene.
“She had four children, but two died. One of the children was at the well crying profusely while the body was being removed. She had actually asked her two kids to drop the laptop they were playing with and ordered them to go to bed before she went missing,” a witness said.
But a police source said there were marks of violence on her, adding that murder might not be ruled out.
“The woman had cuts on her head and some bruises. It is not clear if she actually committed suicide. The husband was the one that reported the matter at the police station when she went missing. He told us that his wife just woke up beside him and he had not seen her since then. But I think an autopsy will reveal what actually killed her,” the police source said.
