It was gathered that the woman, who residents said was not from Idokpa community, was believed to have committed suicide overnight.

As residents trooped out to the building to see the body, nobody could say why the woman decided to take such drastic action.


A resident at the scene, identified as samuel, also confirmed that the woman was not a member of the community, as nobody could recognise her.

“We all ran there when the news got to us but no one seems to know the woman or where she came from. Hopefully, the police will help unravel the mystery,” Samuel told Tribune.

It was further gathered that the owner of the uncompleted building contacted the police in the area, who made arrangement for the evacuation of the corpse to the mortuary.

Spokesperson of the Edo State Police Command, Kontongs Bello, who confirmed the incident, said that investigation is ongoing and a statement will be issued in due course.
