The wife of FRCN staff who committed suicide by jumping into the lagoon last week Mrs Zainab Oladejo is still in shock and can’t understand why her husband choose to end his life.
Her husband Rauf, a father of eight was driving to work and parked on the Third mainland bridge and jumped into the lagoon.
Mr Rauf was reportedly transfered from FRCN training school in Shogunle to the Broadcasting house in Lagos.
His wife Mrs Oladejo described him as a peace-loving husband and father.
“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”
His son Sheriff, said his father was not ill and did not have any financial crisis, atleast to the best of his knowledge. He said;
“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
