Pelumi Balogun, the sister of the young lady identified as Yetunde Balogun whose husband’s family claimed committed suicide in Ilorin, Kwara State, has spoken up.
It can be recalled that the mother of two who was supposed to turn 31 on Easter Monday, was pronounced dead at the general hospital, Ilorin, on Monday April 11.
The cause of her death is still a mystery and a post mortem test will be conducted to ascertain the real cause of her sudden demise.
While her husband’s family claim she ingested Sniper after having an argument with her husband over his plan to marry a second wife, another report claim she was killed by her husband and her mother-in-law for being a Christian.
Speaking on the issue with Daily Trust, the grieving sister of the deceased refuted claims that her sister killed herself, and accused her husband’s family of hiding something.
“This is an injustice, because my sister can never kill herself. This is really painful for my family, and we believe they are hiding something from us. But we will fight it to the end,” she lamented.
“When my younger sister, Deborah, got to Yetunde’s house, she met a lot of people and was told that our sister was dead. Till now, they haven’t bothered to call us to inform us of the incident.”
“We were supposed to celebrate her birthday last Monday and not mourning her. I had told her not to return to that house but she refused. She went and didn’t return alive.
“She is still at the mortuary. The autopsy result will be out on Tuesday. What everyone is saying about my sister is false, but I know God will fight for her. She is dead and can’t stand up to clear herself; when the result is out, we’ll know the truth.”
