Residents said the deceased had told landlords in the area to be part of a World Press Conference she intended to address that fateful day by 6:30pm.
The landlords, who waited in vain to see her at the stipulated time, went to her residence only to find her lifeless body dangling from the roof.
Some residents, who preferred anonymity, said the woman who had been sick and treated several times had before now threatened to take her life by jumping into a well in the neighbourhood.
They stated: “It was when some of us arrived to listen to what she had to tell us at the press conference she promised to address that we discovered she was nowhere to be found.”
“While searching for her, we saw her body dangling from the roof of her house,” a landlord said.
He said: “There was even a time she said she would jump into the well and we had to announce to all landlords that they should make sure that their wells were well secured and covered to avoid any mishap.”
Her house, a bungalow on the street, was deserted and under lock and key just as sympathisers and relatives gathered in groups to discuss the tragedy at Ologede Police Division.
A source said the corpse had been deposited at a morgue in the state capital.
