  1. Shame on this pathetic government. The guy was severely depressed and nobody paid attention, or were too engrossed in their own personal problems to notice. Governor (Oppressor)Ajimobi of Oyo State, in a recent confrontation with students, asked them “so what if your institutions are closed for 8 months, am I the one who closed down your schools, so what if salaries are not paid? etc. I was very disgusted and ashamed. His daughter who got married in Lebanon about 2 years ago, had a wedding cake high as a building (vanity upon vanity). It is disgraceful how people often forget their humble beginnings, and are aloof to the sufferings of others. The Supreme Judge will some day hold us accountable for our actions. May God have mercy on the dead man’s family. Is there a way I can get in touch with his wife to send money to help his family?

  2. There is no RIP for suicidal death !

    SUICIDE IS PASSAGE TO HELL !!!!!.

    I pray may God Almighty console the family left behind.
    And may God provide for the upkeep of the children and the wife.

    CASE CLOSED

    Do not commit suicide !
    HELL is REAL !

  3. Nothing should justify suicide. People should always retain the absolute truth in their inner heart that,NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT. You don’t kill yourself because of the temporary inability of you sustaining yourself financially including that of your family. Our condition can best be described as our planet (EARTH)that rotate on it axis 24 hours without stopping. In a similar vein,any worsen financial condition that is plaguing any of us at the moment is bound to rotate for good. Let’s be positive-minded or be optimistic at all times. Nigerian Government are no people to rely our hope upon. More often than not,they’ve failed us. We are been scammed every 4 years to vote for corrupt criminals who often hide what they really are at first, begging us for support from streets to streets only for them to close their ears to the cry of masses after they’ve garnered support from public and attained to power. I wouldn’t surprise if their is a massive revolution from Nigerian citizens against their corrupt Government someday. Is surely going to happen someday, I strongly believe it.

  4. THE MAN WAS A FOOL BEFORE HIS DEATH. HE TOOK HIS LIFE BECAUSE OF THE PRESSURE HE WAS FACING LEAVING 3 KIDS BEHIND. DID HE EXPECT THE VULNERABLE KIDS TO HANDLE THEM? LET ME SAY “SHAME TO HIS CORPSE”.

  5. To say the fact…d same thing happen like dis in my area as well…getting deep down of the matter..Na juju tins na hin make dat guy kill hang hin self… One of his friends wanna take over his wife

  6. RIP!!! Committing suicide should’nt be d next/solution 4 d frustration encountered,God ‘ll console d family he left behind.Tope rest in d bosssom of ur lord.

  7. Condemning this guy shows how ***** people have become. Who knows what he went through before making such decisions. The act of suicide is morally wrong and unjustifiable. However, it is imperative that the government stop owing folks and find ways to pay them. The ogas are there chopping money while the poor masses suffer.
    Lets put his wife and three children in prayers
