Young Nigerian OAP Oluwapelumi Orungbe Dies By Suicide

A budding Nigerian OAP cum photographer, identified as Oluwapelumi Orungbe, has reportedly taken her own life for unknown reasons in Magodo, Lagos.

Though details of her death remain unclear, Orungbe, a Cool FM intern, was said to have recently completed the one-year compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), before she reportedly committed suicide on July 26, in Magodo, Lagos.

Confirming her death, N6, a popular on-air personality with Cool FM Lagos, said the 2017 UNILAG graduate never showed any signs of depression. He expressed shock over her demise.

He wrote: “Just received news that my intern committed suicide. Sharp, pretty young girl, though a bit reserved, just did NYSC with her whole life ahead of her. I’m numb and my hands are shaking. Depression is real. Please speak to someone and seek help. RIP Pelumi. Heaven has no more pain.”

Pelumi on the other hand, left a cryptic message for her followers on Twitter. 

Her friend, Banjo Taije, also reacted to her death.
He wrote:
“I lost a friend today. Her smile was priceless, so full of life. She had everyone’s back. As I stood at her graveside I could only imagine what she must have gone through.
We chase fame, money and other things, only to realise that everything is just going to end with a three letter word R.I.P. so it’s up to us to make our days count.
Let’s always take out time to check on our friend’s. There is a lot going on the inside, because we smile doesn’t mean we are really okay. Money isn’t everything, she was comfortable.
Depression is real. Rest in peace Oluwapelumi Orungbe.
She was complete #Photographer #OAP”
May her soul rest in peace.
