Police in Anambra have reached out to a middle-aged woman who threatened to kill herself on Facebook.
Anambra police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, in a statement on Wednesday said preliminary investigation showed that the woman was in a troubled marriage and was seeking divorce.
He said: “The area commander Nnewi has got her. She has a family problem and was seeking for divorce.
“Although her problem is civil in nature, but leaving her in that condition could lead to something else since she is threatening to take her life.
“The area commander has invited her and her husband tomorrow (Thursday) for further counseling.”
The woman, whose name has been withheld, had in two separate posts on Facebook said she was contemplating taking her life in order to end her troubles.
“In these moments before my departure, I feel more clarity than I have ever felt in my dull life. In one minute, I will be free from the voices, from the pain, and from you. Nobody listened. Nobody cared,” she had written in one of the posts.
