My wife said she was going to the mountain but committed suicide - Pastor

We reported yesterday of a pastor’s wife, Opeyemi Babatola, who committed suicide in Akure but her husband, Pastor Adeolu Baba­tola, said the deceased informed him that she was going for a church programme, until her decomposing corpse was discovered three days later.
He told Police detec­tives in Ondo State that his wife’s remains were seen hanging in an un­completed flat in their backyard after she had said she was going to the mountain to pray last Fri­day.
The pastor said: “On Monday morning, I went to the back of the other apartment in the house and discovered that there were many houseflies on the window and decided to open it only to discover the dangling body of my wife. So, I raised alarm.
“I invited the Police to the scene, but they could not do anything to untie my wife until some tradi­tionalists were invited to bring down her corpse.”
The Ondo State police spokesman, Femi Joseph, while confirming the in­cident, said, “the husband is with us and helping us in our investigation. He narrated his side of the story and we are still in­vestigating his claims.”
