See How Woman In Viral ‘Mummy Calm Down’ Video Died
Toluige Olokobi Babalola, who went viral in the popular ‘Mummy Calm Down’ video, is dead. According to her husband, Lawal, she committed suicide but there seem to be a disagreement on how she died.
Speaking on the issue at the Edo State Police Command Headquarters in Benin City, the Police Public Relations Officer, Chidi Nwabuzor, said: “On November 8, the husband, by name Lawal, reported to the Evbuotubu Division in Benin City, Edo State.
“He said that he returned from the market and met his two-year-old child, Ife Lawal, crying.
“immediately, he burst the door open and saw the wife on a rope tied to the ceiling. So he loosened it and cried out to the neighbours.
“They came and accompanied him to the hospital where the wife was confirmed dead and they deposited the body at a hospital mortuary in Benin City.
“Thereafter, he went to the Evbuotubu Police Station to report the incident.
“The DPO went with his operatives to the house, where they recovered the rope and suicide note allegedly written by the late woman.
“From there, the DPO went down with him to the hospital to check the body of the deceased for mark of violence. With all diligence, the DPO checked, but there was no mark of violence.
“Based on this, the Commissioner of Police, Dankwara, directed the DPO to immediately transfer the case to SCID for further investigation.
“There are issues alleged and there are so many sides of the coin.
“The husband said the neighbours came when he cried for help. And that they helped him loosen the rope from his wife’s neck.
“However, the neighbours are saying no, ‘we do not know anything about loosening the rope’.
“They said when he shouted for help, they came in and met him lying on the woman.
“There are so many issues and that is why the Commissioner of Police, in his wisdom, ordered for investigation. Moreso when there was a report from the DPO that there was no mark of violence.
“One would have expected, in all truism, a mark from the rope on the woman that died from hanging. That is the mark of violence we are talking about. So he is under investigation.”
