      Ok. Is the destination after suicide the problem solver? Devil is deceiving people these days. God is still working miracles. Why take your life, God gave you breathe and you took it. What will you tell God.

    I am sure this is not ordinary. He was receiving a call and the next minute was telling the driver to pull over and then proceeded to jump to his death. Not ordinary, I tell you. He must have been remote-controlled by the person who called him; after all, we are in Africa.

      Or maybe the news he got over the phone was too much for him to handle?

      The rest of humanity are developing useful tools like the Internet, and we are still using it to propagate drivel like “remote control’! SMDH

      My dear @ Mom of 3 you are so right!!! Before a whole PhD Dr Olukoya left molecular biology to pursue God, is not a small thing o!!! The person that called the guy over the phone is obviously a witch or a wizard and they programmed the attack through phone! Like Dr Olukoya will say, they are becoming more sophisticated by the day!!! I plead the blood of Jesus over some phone calls and some I don’t even bother picking, especially when they are doing everything to reach me by force!!!

      I am not a MFM member, but I listen to his messages on YouTube!!! Some people after talking to you over the phone, the next thing is the feeling of deep depression!!! Please if you ever talk to anyone and they make you feel like that , feel free to cut them off!!!

      African witchcraft will not go for people with useless destinies, they will always come for those with colorful destiny!!! Even see Daddy G O as he enter Church with him PhD in Mathematics, that is ehn even a Brain Surgeon in Germany continued questioning God’s existence, until he went into a comatose state and Jesus visited him and when he came back to consciousness he himself acknowledged God for the Big Bang theory!!!

      And its this kind of thought process that usually leads to PARANOIA and eventually other mental health problems like SCHIZOPHRENIA…. We should be watchful of what we allow into our minds. The mind is VERY powerful

      Thank you @Lacey. You are so correct. This people don’t know that our major enemies are not flesh and blood ones but principalities and powers and rulers of darkness in high places. And that is why we need to put on the whole armour of God.

      So based on ur remote control hypothesis, we need to know the remote control number so that we won’t answer it when it calls…..abii? I no fit laff enuff.

    Since vuhari got into power the amount of suicide in this country now is something else
    I use to believe suicide was the last option for any Nigerian, that we are resiliant people nothing can break. We just suffer and smile.
    This country is just a mess and I blame our docile vuhari.
    Things are soooooo hard for people.

      Sit there and keep blaming buhari like my sis terrible will say even prostitutes have children who become pastors. Own your life.

      What ever your adage about prostitute says, it doesn’t take away the fact that since Buhari, many Nigerians have committed suicide. Never in the Nigeria history have we recorded this overwhelming number of suicide. You all deceiving Buhari, singing his praise instead of correcting him will be judged. Many turned into prostitution and more to robbery.
      Buhari has scattered Nigeria, no goat would have handled Nigeria the way he did! Did you sèe all that Osibajo was able to do in 49 days howbeit …..? The Buhari gave us excuses all through.

      See the soaring cost of food? Keeping a little shop is a great deal let alone companies? Businesses are collapsing daily.

      May God save Nigerians!

      Yes I will blame vuhari because he brought hardship to the masses. Even his wife Aisha knows this. Inflation has never been this high,Price of food has trippled in the people, ppl have lost their jobs, salaries have been halfed or not paid at all, even company and industries have shut down.
      We are patiently waiting for 2019 to sweep his bad luck out of the country.

      @Nene+: you’ll just sit down in your house and be making up phantom statistics. “Never in the Nigeria history have we recorded this overwhelming number of suicide”. I would buy this if you had meticulously taken note of all the suicides across Nigeria since the ‘history’ of Nigeria began and could show that there truly has been a significant spike, i.e. – if you had conducted a scientifically and statistically sound study on suicides in Nigeria. Until then, please go and argue that one in your house, where you conjured the statistics that give you the audacity to make that kind of statement. Your hatred for Buhari has got to be the most concentrated of any commenter on BN. In your hate to blame him for everything, you never disappoint with your loopy, random and retarded statements.

      There was never any statistic to back up that myth that Nigerians were some how immune to suicide.

      Or to depression and other real life issues that we have ‘forbidden’ or attributed to paranatural forces. Depression is not a white man disease. It’s just as Nigerian as it is Canadian. It’s human. The sooner we approached it with less superstition, the better.

    What are tragedy, someone on Instagram said he wrote a note with his address. Only if the driver knew what he was about to do. Lord pls have mercy. Help us, we need your grace and mercy to always come out strong from every situation. Please people suicide is never an option.

    Is it that rescue teams do not exist in Nigeria? Na wa oh.

    • James

      No rescue team available and someone somewhere is referring to statistic….Statistics ni bo?

    This is so so sad. I wonder what was going on in his mind while he jumped. I wonder if he wished someone could help him stop falling or if he was done with life for good. He’s never coming back. Just like that! His SUV remains,
    So sad.

    God av mercy! This is so sad. But can’t the call be traced through his number? At least to know who he spoke to last.

    Sometimes it is harder for those we assume to be in a ‘better position’ to take care of themselves or a situation. This really broke my heart. RIP

    No matter what. That man have no right to take his own life. Anyway may his soul rest in peace.

      While you might feel shouldn’t have gone the suicide route, I mean I get the whole ‘ permanent end to what might have been a temporal problem'( even though we don’t know that), he did have a right to take HIS life. I have a friend who always goes ‘despair is impervious to logic and reason’ and it took me a while but one day I got it. Don’t confuse what religion/society might have taught you to what is.

    Mental illness is a real issue and we cannot keep pretending like ‘black men’ do not suffer from it. Someone doesn’t have to run around naked on the streets before we take note. If you’re feeling depressed, experience bouts of paranoia, have extreme mood swings or just not feeling okay generally, talk to a professional, seek help. There’s no shame in wanting to get better.

      Well said! Since Bella Naija tagged this blog post with the word “depression”, it would have been nice if they also included a message similar to this one, that anyone dealing with depression or other issues should let family know or seek professional help (or both).
