In the post, she spoke about giving up hope, however, ended the post with a smiley that masked the pain in her heart so much that her friends did not know she was being serious about her predicament.
After sharing the post on June 19, she allegedly committed suicide on June 21.
According to her friends and loved ones, she fell into depression and consumed some toxic liquids.
She leaves behind her young son, Cristal.
Her death was announced on Facebook by a counsellor whom she worked closely with.
She disclosed that she bought her self-help books in 2018 and was shocked to hear that she had taken her life.
The counsellor wrote:
“This pretty Lady by name Princess Folashade Eloho Bello took her life. She drank Dettol and hypo bleach.
“The story going round says she has a son and she was a single mum. Her friends said she was depressed. One of her post she wrote how she was deeply affected by the pandemic during the period of staying at home, she had to eat up her business capital.
“Hmmmmm so sad I feel pains for her son. I know being a single mum is not easy but you can make it easy by building a positive mindset with determination you can achieve your aims. Single mum know this even some married women are living like a single mum in their homes which means your case is not a peculiar one, most women are going through hurt and pains being married.
“So don’t see yourself because I am single that is the reason I am going through what I am going through, sweetie it is all lies of the devil. Life is up and down, negative and positive the ability to stand firm when facing negativity in life is what matters most.
