Jobless Nigerian Graduate Attempts Suicide In Akwa Ibom: Sunday Omotayo Orders Police To Shoot Him

Mr Sunday Omotayo, a graduate from Ekiti State University caused a scene yesterday in Uyo town, Akwa Ibom state when he attempted to commit suicide.

The Engineering graduate caused serious wahala on Wellington Bassey Way, the express road leading to the Government House in Uyo when he suddenly jumped out of a speeding Toyota Hiace bus, expecting to be crushed to death by other vehicles, said he was frustrated about life as he has toiled day and night in search of job for more than ten years since graduation but to no avail.

Some policemen on patrol reported that Omotayo had in the morning gone to the Prison Service asking the officials of the Prison, to either kill him, or make way for him to go and rot in the gulag.

A Prison official who spoke to Our Correspondent said: “We just saw somebody, well dressed and on tie with no look of a man mentally deranged running towards us, and forced us to become immediately alert with our weapons.

“The next thing he said was shoot me, shoot me, I want to die, I am tired of this world. We were still facing him with our weapons when he scrambled towards us, saying we should allow him to enter and die inside the prison.”

The official explained further that Omotayo was later overpowered by the Police, who arrested, debriefed him and forced him into a bus heading towards the Ibom Plaza roundabout.

Undettered, Effiong Bassey, an eye witness and one of the passengers disclosed that Omotayo jumped from his sitting position in the bus to crash on the major road for other vehicles to run over him.

Laying on the main road leading to Akwa Ibom Government House, he gave some police officers hectic time to get out of the road saying he must put an end to his poverty stricken life by committing suicide.

Omotayo who struggled to speak to some journalists at the scene lamented:

“There is no state that I have not gone to in search of job in the past 10 years, but none for me. I came to Akwa Ibom because this is my last hope because of the stories of Governor Godswill Akpabio and his uncommon transformation. I came with the hope that with what is going on in the state; getting job would be easy so that I can begin to be a man. But since I came, I discovered that even plenty people from Akwa Ibom are also crying because of poverty and joblessness.”

Heya! graduates are suffering in this country.

  4. Sorry man! But don’t take ur life, things would get better 4 u..just believe in God. If we don’t flush out dis unfair and corrupt leaders of ours, I don’t see a better Nigeria coming forth.

  5. It is very obvious that unemployment has been rocking Nigeria for a very long time. Even when i was in primary and secondary school, i remember our teachers singing to us “that there is no job in Nigeria”… The time has come for youths to be more innovative. Living in a country of over 160 million people and a high poverty rate, you cant keep resting on your laurels and always expecting the government to get a job for you. My advice to you mr Omotayo is that there are so much you can do for yourself with little or no help from the government. You need to make use of your creativity. You must not wait for government paid job. There is allot you can do with your Mind without being employed by the govt like entrepreneurship, as a graduate you can start writting articles, pdfs, learning computer and phone repairing, taxi driving, teaching, bloging, etc. Wear out your pride because being a graduate does not make you bigger that a mechanic or even a volcanizer. You just have to make use of it, instead of thinking of creative ways to commit suicide….

  6. My brother too graduated since 2006 (7yrs) stil searching 4 Job $ our foolish God forsaking old men were bc sleeping, playing scrabble, fighting over food,complaining over toilet tissue @ d ongoing wateva Confab after they will each receive N12million 4 3months uncalled for sit………jos wc God shuld perish them all, all dos dat take adv over us (masses)

  7. youths wake up .. …. let turn nigeria to libya , sudan , egypt , alot of african country are dieing for their country , we need freedom old folks on top , leave the young computer world to rule Nigeria .. old petium 1 should leave the sit.. we are in a modern world a dual core world .

  8. Laziest man! Must govt employ u? As an engr, cant u be self employed? Loooooooooooooog hiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssssssssssss!

    • Hmmm Oge, how much do you think a man can start business with in Nigeria, where Power = 0, how much do you think this young man has in his pocket and will be roaming the street. If he wants to be lazy he won’t be seeking for Job and he won’t be frustrated to this level. If God has answered your prayer and you able to raise money for any reason, do not think is because you are intelligent or hardworking.

      We all should speak up the government is not considerate and if the voice of the youths of the country will not be ONE, then this mess will continue for ever. Advice instead of criticizing, God pass man o

  9. It’s quit unfortunate that you are jobless but also bear it in mind that death is not and can never be the solution cos there is also life after death…if you quit the life giving to you by ur creator you also faces another suffering thereafter…Please be courageous, believe me your success in on the way…You just need to take a step to attain it…be a man that you are. God bless

  10. Mr. Omota, my big brother taking your life will be the worst mistake that you’ll ever do on earth. Commit yourself into the hands of God. This should be a lesson to nigerians graduate out there, they should not think of involving themselves in any violent act or committing suicide as a result of unemployment, these vampires of our leaders shall some day wipe out by God Himself, then the groly of our nation shall be restored. God bless our fatherland nigeria.

  12. I feel your pain,the frustration and emptiness you faced for a long time,but the way you are handling it will only hurt you more,believe me,if i have opening and come across you and your story,I will run because you are suicidal and can destroy anybody or thing around you when things don’t go the way you want it.you are not alone,think about your relations,you will create more problem for them.Take it easy dear and stoop low for anything to pass time till the right job comes your way.I know is easier said than done but please manage anything around you.
    Shame to the bodies responsible for creating jobs for this youths and sat on it without a single care.The blood and crime this youths commit out of frustration will visit all of you one by one before your very eyes,You will beg for mercy and death and will never receive any.You will all drink your tears as water,you that denied them their right and life with all your supporters,their tears and yours will drown you in all your stolen glory.

  13. Omatayo, You dont need to take your life, it is a question of time for God to remember you and when he remember you, it will be as if you are dreaming. Please dont take the life you can not give.

  14. Nigerian Youths action speak.No time for any one and life is short.this is the time our youths have to wake up and fight.

  15. @ joe I think the time for Nigerian youth to take drastic action has lapse even before June 12 saga. Nigerian youths are the most cowardice youths under the face of this earth. They rather prefer the useless Politicians use them for their own political gain by sending them on suicidal mission and give them peanut or crumbs of their money they stole. Each and every time I think about this great Country, tears always roll down my cheeks and I will ask myself, is this not the same Nigeria that I grew up from in the 60 & 70’s. In order to fix Nigeria problems even our youths needs to be fully prepare to rescue this Country from the jaw of Oligarchs. We should all forget about our Government will provide job, this is not going to happen with this useless government in stead try to think of what you can do to take this Country to the next level. The future of this country depends on the action of our youths. I know is not going to be that easy for their David to face the useless Goliath in the govt. but if they are tactical they will get the pride of this Nation back to its previous state. Instead of those yahoo guys swindling people they can use that idea to turn this Nation to one of the best. The problem about this yahoo thing is. you only provide comfort for yourself monetarily for the time being what about your children and generation beyond? So the immediate solution to our Nation’s problem is for our youth to step up. There may be casualties in the course of doing this but remember freedom is not always free. In some great Countries, like USA, France some people who have laid down their life for the freedom of their children. Even in Nicaragua the youth over there made it a law that anybody over 65 years is not allowed to participate in the politics of that Country. We are 180 millions now our suffering is critical , what is going to happen if we are 300 million? Over to you Nigerians youth.

  16. God bless nigeria with many things but we dnt have good leadership @ naija,even in d all worlds now they rate dat is our youth saddest most in d world,GOD save us @ naija ooooo.

  17. Ma bro lyf is nt easy itself,bt taking ur lyf is far frm it,wat I urge u 2 do is push on until sumtin happens,cus d road 2 succex is alwayz rough,bt d end wil ever b bright.jst watch nd pray den leave d rest 4 God

  18. Omotayo,u are not serious,u should have ended your life quietly without much ado!All that glitters is not gold, I’m happy u’v come to confirm that the much publicized UNCOMMON TRANSFORMATION is on the pages of newspapers and television while poverty REIGNS SUPREME in AKS. It could have been better if you were an igbo or better still from Enugu where Ekaette Unoma hails from. INDIGENES of the state,especially the ibibios are unemloyed and dying of hunger. Time will tell. Go back to Ekiti and find something doing tokeep body and soul together,Pray for GOD to flush out evil leaders from Nigeria!
