Lagos Socialite Explains Why She Wanted To Jump Into Lagoon
A popular Lagos State socialite, Farida Abdulkabir, has explained why she wanted to plunge into a lagoon on the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos.
According to reports, Abdulkabir, who is the owner of House of Phreedah, cited frustrations, failed marriage and many others as what propelled her action on Thursday night.
In a viral voice note on social media, she said her N100 million marriage with another Lagos socialite, Demola Okulaja, crashed after two months.
Farida was reported to have said that her N100 million marriage to Demola Okulaja crashed after two months in the viral voice note.
She said, “Friends and families warned me not to go into the marriage. They told me that the man only wanted my money but I was recalcitrant.
“I am so sorry for putting my children in such a position. I would not have forgiven myself if I had abandoned them after committing suicide.”
It was reported that her husband moved out of their matrimonial home two months ago.
Recall that Abdulkabir was seen being pacified to desist from jumping in a viral video, while rescuers were assuring her there was no need to take her life before she was whisked away into her vehicle and taken to an undisclosed destination.
