A female banker with one of the new generation banks in Lagos has taken her own life over what she described as work-life difficulties in a note she left behind.

It was reported that the incident happened within the premises of the bank.

The lady identified as Amarachi Ugochukwu reportedly drank an insecticide in the company’s restroom, unknown to her colleagues

In the suicide note she left, she blamed her action on falling short at work and hard economy.

The note reads, “Nothing is working in my life. My figures are low. My brain is clogged up. The economy is getting harder. My decisions are wrong. My mind is messed up. The future doesn’t seem bright at all. I see extreme hardship. I can’t bear the pain anymore.”

She further apologised to her parents and other members of her family who would be affected by her action.

“I’m sorry mum, I’m sorry dad, I’m sorry Nene, Okwe, Toto, Nazor, Chuchu, Ifunanya. Dear Lord, have mercy on me.” She concluded in the note

Calls to the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, went unanswered and a text message sent was not replied to.
