Woman dies after overdosing on sleeping pills


A woman in Kogi has reportedly died after overdosing on sleeping pills.

According to her friend, Zahra Zaraa Danejo, who posted the sad incident on Twitter on 2nd September, said the deceased showed no signs of being suicidal.

Danejo said the deceased was rushed to the hospital, where she was stabilised. She, however, died some hours later.

She wrote,

A good friend of mine overdosed on sleeping pills because she wanted to take her life. Alhamdulillah, she has been stabilized and is recovering in hospital. I’m just here beside myself wondering how I didn’t notice she was unhappy.

Just thinking of our conversations and stuff and wondering if there was a hint I missed. Please talk to the people who love you. I’m just in tears right now

‏We become so busy we don’t notice the dimness in their eyes. We conclude they are fine and they conclude we wouldn’t care to know the internal battle. I failed my friend. Don’t fail yours.

Just shocked and upset. Last time we spoke was on Thursday, we talked about our plans for Kabafest. I had no idea she was suicidal.

I feel so guilty
