A 35-year-old woman identified as Elohor has reportedly died in Okwidjere local government area of Delta state.
Daily Times reports that Elohor drank substances considered to be a poison which led to her death before anyone could come to her aid.
She was said to have lived with a friend without a husband for several years and was last seen that afternoon in the compound before the news of her sudden demise filtered into town.
The deceased had no husband and child and her neighbors said she may have committed suicide as a result of frustration.
The Delta state acting police public relations officer, Andrew Aniamaka confirmed the report saying, "It is a case of suspected murder."
He, however, noted that investigation has commenced to unravel the true cause of the death while the remains have been deposited in a mortuary.
