A 16-year-old Nigerian girl commits suicide identified as Emeryl and also Ibukun to others, reportedly committed suicide after penning down series of suicidal post on Twitter.
The 16-year-old Nigerian girl who talked about battling demons in tweets, was recently suspended from her secondary school after a violent act. She took to Twitter to occasionally vent. Some of her tweets were noticed by some of her followers, but she turned down help and once said;
“This year alone, my parents have spent up to 700k on psychiatrist bills but nothing has worked, but it’s Funke from the internet that’s going to wave her magic wand and fix me with her friendship via DM.”
It was further gathered that she was a sickle cell and schizophrenia patient, who turned on to suicide as a way out. Here are some of her tweets below;

She stopped complaining and she now is no more I know not her cause of death but this really is sad. She was mentally ill, something we Nigerians take for granted. I hope you have finally found peace.
@Ibukunoluwa82 rest well
She only had to survive each day. Everyday was lived with great pain and discomfort yet someone somehow could type this!? If you cannot add a smile to another’s face don’t attempt to steal what little joy that’s left.
Two months ago this was…found out today that she has passed away. When I saw the name I instantly remembered this conversation because of her bio that listed everything she was going through at her young age. RIP
I feel terrible for giving up so soon… I should have tried harder than just letting her know I was available incase she needed someone to talk to… I should have shown her that I was available however I can..
I bet when
@Ibukunoluwa82 was tweeting all that some of ya’ll unfollowed her, some of you muted her up and the rest of you ignored cos oh she’s just looking for attention. Now she’s killed herself and I’m seeing alot of RIPs. Hypocrites
