Nigeria loses another citizen to suicide

A 45 year-old-man, described as a truck driver, has hanged himself inside his room at Etegwe community the Yenagoa Local Government Area of Bayelsa.

The man, identified as Oliver Osieme from Anambra State took his own life late on June 24.

He was said to have committed suicide when his wife, a trader and other close relations left home for their business.

The entire community was in mourning when the NAN visited the place.

Sympathisers were seen trooping into the apartment of the deceased to condole the wife and other family members.

A close relation of the deceased, who preferred anonymity, said nobody was in the house when the incident happened.

“Everybody, including his wife went out but the wife’s younger sister came back from school and noticed the door to his room was locked.

“Knowing that he is always at home since he lost his job as a truck driver because the truck was faulty, she kept knocking but there was response.

“She then went to the window to see if she could gaze from the back and that was how she saw him hanging in his room.

“It is a sad experience. Nobody would have thought such a thing would have been planned by him.

“The police have just taken his corpse away. If you had come earlier, you would have seen it. He was a young man full of life,” the relation said.


  1. Thank you lord for your grace that's seeing me through,this would have been my story 3days ago.I wrote nursing council exam,it was my last chance and I was among the eliminated students. I cried,was heartbroken,depress, suicide was only thing on my mind,at least if I die, nobody will ask me about the result,I wont leaves with the shame,I won't start looking for money to go and start refreshers program. The only thing on head was to sleep nd never wake up.but in all this I keep praying to God to give me the strength to take up my cross and fight a good fight.

    1. God will grant you success in your new program. Don't give up. You will laugh last dear

  2. Is this snipper? I said it, banning of sniper is not the solution, but solving the problem itself. Many Nigerians wake up and do not know what to eat
