Photos: Liberian Woman Found Dead And Hanging On A Tree in Lagos

A woman wearing black sweater and orange skirt was found hanging on a pear tree this morning Friday, Sept. 12th, at Bankole Street, Isheri-Oke, Lagos. Reports from the resident around the area said the woman popularly known as Kate was from Liberia.

According to people who spoke to Punch, said the woman  worked in a sachet water factory before she died. While they said that the woman had been sickly for some time, the residents said she did not appear to have any problem with anyone in the community. But after the outbreak of the Ebola disease that was brought to Nigeria by a Liberian diplomat, Patrick Sawyer, some of the people in the area opted not to have anything to do with her. 

One of the residents who pleaded anonymity said, “We see her in this neighbourhood every day. She always looked sick but people stopped selling to her after the Ebola outbreak. It could be because she was Liberian and looked sickly. This might have frustrated her.”
 Another resident who spoke to our correspondent after his request for anonymity was granted said, “She attended a church in the area and her church members still saw her yesterday. I used to see her every day in the dress she died in. She was sick and people in this area had avoided her, especially after the Ebola outbreak.”
Some landlords, who are members of the Isheri Oke Community Development Association, that the incident had been reported to the Isheri Police Division.
