July 28, 2016 – Okada Rider Commits Suicide In Ijebu Igbo Ogun State Over Inability To Provide For Family

A frustrated motorcycle rider has terminated his own life in Ijebu Igbo area of Ogun State.

The victim who reportedly got injured in a tragic accident back in May was said to be dependent on his wife because of his inability to drive his motorcycle.

It was learnt that 45-year-old Monday Onoja expressed dissatisfaction with his life the previous day and threatened to kill himself.

Efforts by his wife, Esther, and a relative to make the Benue State indigene change his mind reportedly proved abortive.

The victim was reported to have woken up early and hanged himself in his room.

The corpse of the motorcycle rider was discovered around 8am at the victim’s residence on Ogunnaya Street, Ojowo, Ijebu-Igbo.

He is survived by 5 children and a wife.

    Whatever difficulty that caused him to take his life is toy compared to the torments he will face in Afterdays. How I wish that people would pause a while and think upon this whenever those suicidal promptings overtake them. Whatever we suffer in this world are all fleeting experiences. But the suffering of hell is eternal. In view of this, does it worth it to take our own lives even if the worst things are happening to us?

    This man has become a victim of himself. His wife and children I pity. It is not easy to pull through this kind of shock. Koolz would always say Life Goes On, but to shake off this kind of past and continue forward is almost impossible.

    Just wondering if the excuse worths it. Anyway, he has just taken his life, the life he can create nor restored. He has just denied his kids the fatherly love and he has turned the wife to a widow. Rip man, but if you are opportunued to come again, hold on to the word which says”NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT”

    I just pity this man, bcos he has allow the devil to claim his soul that Jesus Christ suffered before and on the cross, bled and died to save.

    Then the unfortunate suffering wife, then the children.
    I‘m just wondering now how the family he left behind are going to continue from this point.
    May God help them to get through this.

    Too bad that you terminated your own life because you couldn’t provide for your family. You shouldn’t have done that to yourself. RIP

    The country is very hard to cope with no doubt about that. That being said,its therefore not enough to take one’s own life. He has judged himself already. That even shows he does not even value his own life. If Those without eyes,deaf ones including the cripples have not taking there lives why should he that even have an okada he’s managing with? Even though the bike is not his own that shouldn’t justify taking his own life.

    This is one of the consequences of rejecting calls for salvation. No person that has known the experientially will ever contemplates committing suicide. The Bible says how shall we escape if we neglect so great salvation. Repent and accept Christ today for tomorrow maybe too late.

    I am not in support that he committed suicide but the enormous weight the African society put on the the man shoulder is just too. When I lost my job few year ago, life was hell and my wife have to take over the responsibility of fending for the family. But people will argued that it is supposed to be so. In our society, people will be laughing to the man that the wife is feeding him. In the western world, it is not live that, you see couples living with the girl’s parents. Try that in Nigeria, you will be a boot of jokes. I went through hell,when I loss my job but today I have a better job than the one I lost and even about completing my duplex house. Things are not going well Africa because of poor leadership. Our people especially family members should allow couples live their life in hard or good time. Too much pressure on the man or woman can lead to unimaginable catastrophy
