According to a viral video seen by Vanguard, the beautician and entrepreneur, who wore black attire, sobbed profusely as she was held by some individuals who restrained her from jumping into the lagoon. 

Unfounded reports revealed that Sobowale’s marriage crashed a few days ago, which might have led to the suicide attempt, despite having an expensive wedding about two months ago. 

Her husband, Demola had reportedly moved out of their home.
