The deceased P.M.NEWS gathered was rushed to Saint Daniel Hospital, Oworonsoki by her neighbours were she later died.
A neighbour who does not want her name mentioned told P.M.NEWS that the girl was an easy going person and wondered why she could take her life because her boyfriend jilted her.
â€œShe is such a quiet and easy going girl one could not have imagined that she can take her life just because her boyfriend jilted her, it is painful,â€ she lamented.
Speaking with P.M.NEWS on the incident, the Lagos State Police Public Relation Officer, PPRO, Mr. Samuel Jinadu, cautioned youths not to get into a relationship with someone they do not understand very well. He also advised members of the public learn to always manage any crises in which they might find themselves.â€
â€œYet-to-be couples should try and understand themselves very well before agreeing to marry and we should also learn to manage our personal problems so that they do not degenerate to a level where one will have to take his/her life.â€
