According to the Nigerian lawyer, disclosed that her friend who was stabilized after overdosing on a drug because she wanted to take her life, said she died this morning. Her tweets reads;
A good friend of mine overdosed on sleeping pills because she wanted to take her life. Alhamdulillah she has been stabilized and is recovering in hospital. I’m just here beside myself wondering how I didn’t notice she was unhappy.
Just thinking of our conversations and stuff and wondering if there was a hint I missed. Please talk to the people who love you. I’m just in tears right now
We become so busy we don’t notice the dimness in their eyes We conclude they are fine and they conclude we wouldn’t care to know the internal battle. I failed my friend Don’t fail yours
Just shocked and upset. Last time we spoke was on Thursday,we talked about our plans for Kabafest I had no idea she was suicidal. I feel so guilty, She died this morning
A painful confusion A heartbreaking conclusion Uncovering A veiled suffering. She used to be the sweetest girl.
She died this morning.😞💔 https://t.co/WTxOZc6jG3

There was also a report of a Nigerian man who died of depression, months after being denied the FG employment that made him quit his job. When the National Pension Commission (PENCOM) offered Mustapha Ajiya a letter of employment in March 2017, his joy knew no bounds. With two months left to assume duty, he resigned from his former job and started making preparations towards starting a new career.
Then, Ajiya got a telephone call from the organisation that assumption of the new employees had been postponed indefinitely on the orders of Aisha Dahir-Umar, acting director-general of the organisation.
They were finally employed. According to his colleagues, when the waiting for assumption seemed endless, Mustapha became emotionally disturbed. Having made several efforts to prevail on the management of PENCOM to address their plight, Mustapha slipped into depression, which took a toll on his health. He died leaving a wife and two children behind.
