20-year-old girl commits suicide because her brother did this to her

A 20-year-old girl with the name Sherifat Suleiman has committed suicide over continuous fights with her brother.

The incident happened around 4pm on Sunday 12th July, in Isawo, Ikorodu, Lagos state. 

According to reports, the young girl who was preparing for her WAEC examinations, lived in a two-room apartment with her brother.

She started groaning in pain after taking a poisonous substance she bought. 

According to neighbours who found her lying on the floor with white foam coming out from her mouth, Sherifat died while she was being rushed to the hospital.

Residents of the area alleged that the girl decided to commit suicide when she could no longer take the physical and psychological assault from her brother she started living with after their father's death.

When her body was checked by neighbors, bruises were seen on her legs and laps.

Her corpse was taken to Ijebu, her home town for her burial.
