Sept 3rd, 2012 – Man Commits Suicide In Surulere, Lagos State, Nigeria

This very sad incident happened over the weekend at Olaitan street in Masha, Surelere, Lagos state Nigeria.

A man woke up early morning of September 1st, 2012 and saw a man identified as Afeez climbing a PHCN electric pole.

The suicidal man, Afeez had earlier complained to some of his friends that he is tired of living life.

A group of people reportedly begged him to come down which he eventually did.

Instead of being consoled people started slapping him and speaking all sorts of abusive words against him.

His friends immediately took him away to avoid further assault.

We learnt on Saturday night, Afeez drank poison and died.

On Sunday morning, Afeez’s lifeless body was discovered in his room.

People should keep in mind that a suicidal person doesn’t need any more hurtful words all he need is love and attention.

So sad!

  1. This is indeed very pathetic. Govt needs to embark on policies that will improve on the standard of living of its citizens. They should implement people’s driven programmes that will drastically cut down the rising cost of living. Economic goals & development should be the focal points of this administration lest they witness the extinction of the masses.

  2. The truth is that life is all about struggling, bcos its bad with you 2day dosnt mean it wont be fine tomorrow. May be He needed just a few minutes to live b4 his brkthro, its a pity dat he died.
