Why I wanted to plunge into the lagoon to end it all, Lagos socialite, Farida Sobowale opens up

A popular Lagos State socialite, Farida Abdulkabir popularly known as Farida Sobowale, has explained why she wanted to plunge into a lagoon on the Third Mainland Bridge, Lagos.


Abdulkabir who is also the owner of House of Phreedah cited frustrations, failed marriage and many others as what propelled her action on Thursday night.


In a viral voice note on social media, she said her N100 million marriage with another Lagos socialite, Demola Okulaja, crashed after two months.


Abdulkabir was seen being pacified to desist from jumping into the lagoon in a viral video, while rescuers were assuring her there was no need to take her life before she was whisked away into her vehicle and taken to an undisclosed destination.


The fair-complexioned entrepreneur and socialite owns a beauty lounge and spa located at Akerele Street, Surulere, Lagos.


As a fallout of her crashed marriage, Farida, who could not endure depression, decided to end her life as she alighted from her black-coloured Sport Utility Vehicle on the Third Mainland Bridge to plunge into the lagoon.


She was married to another Lagos socialite, Demola Okulaja, in a grand marriage about two months ago.
