This is so tragic! A depressed Nigerian Ariyo Olanrewaju Taiwo took to his Facebook page to announce his intention to take his life, explaining but without details, he said he just has a few hours to live but he isn’t afraid of death but wishes he could make things right again… Instead of offering words of comfort, some Facebook users took it liberally, provoking him to anger with their words to commit the deed.
“Only got a few hours to live, but not scared of death…wish I can make thing right again
but NO… it is over” he had posted
Instead they jokingly urged him to come a take a rope to aid him in the suicide process, or even present himself as a ritual material so he “doesn’t die a wasteful death”…Hours later, he was indeed discovered dead.
Later tributes started pouring in by social media users when the news of his death went viral;
This is tragic! A cry of depression shouldn’t be taken lightly. Most often than not these individuals truly need a helping hand. Nothing is just blurted from the heart without depth. This death as well as many others could have been avoided. May his soul rest in peace.
