Ogun and Lagos states have the highest figures of 25 and 12 respectively. Although, psychologists had predicted this, while citing financial and economic troubles that many Nigerians are currently facing, many are still surprised at the huge statistics.
Guy, forget about Yoruba people for a moment please. What the flunk is going on in Anambra?? Suicide everywhere. Shyt is getting out of hand, Yo.http://pulse.ng/gist/stupid-love-300-level-ansu-student-commits-suicide-because-girlfriend-cheated-on-him-id5145043.html

ODDVangaurd your people are leading in suicide missions
62 Nigerians committed suicide in 6 months – Police
Ogun, Lagos record highest cases
…Ogun, Lagos top list
The official confirmation that the Nigerian economy is in recession by the Federal Government on August 31, appears to have further stimulated more suicide cases across the nation. In the last six months, seven out of the 36 states of the federation sampled, have recorded over 62 cases of suicides according to statistics from the various police commands.
Ogun and Lagos states have the highest figures of 25 and 12 respectively. Although, psychologists had predicted this, while citing financial and economic troubles that many Nigerians are currently facing, many are still surprised at the huge statistics.
The poor economy has compelled companies to close shop because of harsh operating environment and difficulties in sourcing foreign exchange. Consequently, many have been thrown into the Labour market, thereby increasing people’s anxiety, depression and frustration.
According to Saturday Telegraph investigations, many are now embracing suicide as short cut to end hardship and economic nightmares not minding that Nigerians consider the act a taboo. With this, their supposed misery and suffering brought about by the prevailing recession are buried with them.
The Acting Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abimbola Oyeyemi, has confirmed 25 awful statistics of suicide deaths in Ogun State. On Tuesday, August 16, a housewife identified as Mrs. Omolola Atejioye hung herself inside her apartment in Ilishan-Remo, Ikenne Local Government Area of the state.
The tragic incident shocked many residents as the deceased did not leave behind any suicide note. Atejioye, aged 35, tied herself to the ceiling in one of the rooms in the building located along Ago-Iwoye road in Ilishan-Remo. The husband of the deceased, Ayodele, reportedly returned from work about 5:30pm and found her wife dangling in the room.
Why she took her own life could not be ascertained as neighbours gave different accounts about the incident. While some point to health challenges, others claimed she incurred some debts and was struggling to pay back, without success.
In neighbouring Lagos State, the PPRO, Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent of Police, also confirmed that 12 suicide cases and five attempts were reported to the command in the last six month. Worried by this trend, Badmos said, what is important to the police is to find out why people would want to commit suicide.
She said there is the need to educate those that did not succeed to see reason that killing oneself is not the best way out of any problem. “We can prosecute anyone who made attempt to kill himself or herself but that seemed not to be the solution.
“The real solutions lie in finding out from such persons the reasons for such an act and talk them out of it. We always advise victims’ families of victims to monitor them closely because those who commit suicide do so out of depression and frustration ranging from marital, economic, loss of job and some other vices.”
Also in Ebonyi State, no fewer than 10 persons have committed suicide with the latest being a 36-yearold man in Mgbaleze Isu Community, Onicha Local Government Area of the state, Chijioke Ani, who hung himself in his farm. The state PPRO, DSP George Okafor, confirmed the incidents.
‘’Yes, it is true that a man killed himself at the farm. He did not leave any note behind so, it was difficult to ascertain what could have led him into the act.” Before Ani’s case, Ogonna Obaji, a 22-year-old man from Umuezeukwu Community of the same local government had equally taken his life.
According to his mother, Nkpuma, Ogonna, popularly called Best finished his secondary three years ago and moved to Lagos to join his brother but developed mental problem along the line. She told Saturday Telegraph that Ogonna had tried to take his life with knife and was saved on many occasions.
“I left Ogonna with the father in the house and when I returned home, I could not see him. “I started looking for him and raised the alarm which attracted our people. We searched for him and later saw him dangling on a tree.’’
Earlier in January, a 19-year-old teenager girl, identified simply as Chiamaka, also committed suicide. She was said to have been impregnated and abandoned by her lover boy. Chiamaka took her life in her residence at No. 17 Nwike Street Abakaliki.
In Delta State, about four reported cases of suicide were recorded by the state Police Command. The PPRO, SP Celestine Kalu, confirmed the incidents. Those reported were that of a 26-year-old student of Delta State University, Abraka, Evelyn Mogekwu, a woman, identified simply as Jane, who was said to have committed the act after her fiancé abandoned her for another woman.
The other incident was that of a student of the Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe- Oghara, Miss Oritsegbubemi Udu. While Evelyn was studying Microbiology at DELSU, Oritsegbubemi was an ND II student of Otefe-Oghara polytechnic.The name of the fourth victim was not given.
Jane, a graduate of Economics from University of Benin, allegedly took her life due to frustration after she was jilted by her unidentified boyfriend of seven years.
Oyo, like other states, recorded four cases of suicide within the period under review. On June 26, a 10-year-old girl, Kudirat Raji, was said to have surprisingly committed suicide in Ibadan. She was residing with her sister at 19, Bumoye Street, Benjamin area, Eleyele, the Oyo State capital. Raji was sent on an errand within the house, but did not return on time.
She was later found to have hanged herself with a rope tied to the window burglary in the house. Just like Raji, a 35-yearold commercial motorcyclist residing in Oyo town, Jimoh Yusuff, also committed suicide on July 2, after reportedly killing his wife, Adeola. Yusuff was said to have strangled his wife to death after which he ingested rat poison and died at the General Hospital, Oyo.
There was yet a similar tragedy on August 4, when 48-year old ex-NEPA staff committed suicide in his house at Ayegbami Zone 7, Idi Ose along Akanran Road in the Ona Ara Local Government Area of Ibadan. Adepoju was disengaged from the establishment at Abeokuta two years before his death, but his wife said he had not been paid his entitlements.
The deceased however left a three-sheet suicide note indicating that he was suffering from a chronic disease. Aside that, another 54-year-old woman, Oluwabunmi Oluwafemi, also toed the same shameful route on August 29, in Ibadan, by hanging himself on a tree.
The deceased who used to reside in Bembo, Apata area of Ibadan, was said to have gone to spend the weekend with her first child, Opeyemi, in Olugbode, Odo-Ona area of the town before the calamity.
Unlike other homicide offences, suicide cases are not usually reported to the law enforcement agencies in Ondo State, according to the police. Nonetheless, the PPRO, Femi Joseph, confirmed one reported case in the last six months to the State Police Command.
The deceased, whose name was not given, was a male from Owo Local Government Area of the state. Joseph told Saturday Telegraph that the man was found dangling at the ceiling of his one room apartment in the town. The PPRO, however, said people are not reporting such cases to the police because of the traditional perception about suicide as, according to him, they prefer to report such incidence to traditionalists.
And in Kano State, about six victims were recorded, according to police statistics. The six cases had to do with depression, the police further said. Sara Imoleayo, a 400 level student of Bayero University Kano, was among those that took their lives.
Another, who was identified simply as Dauda was overheard complaining of economic hardship on many occasions slaughtering himself with a sharp knife. The remaining ones, Kumbotso, Madobi and Kwakwachi, one of our correspondents gathered died because of excessive poverty.
However, a socio-psychologist at the University of Lagos, Dr. Alex Igundunse, said that suicides are upshots of anxiety. “It borders on how people adjust to what is happening in the country. Issues like how am I going to feed my family; take care of my children, continue the house I am building and all that.
“So, it triggers an anxiety and in such situations, what people really need to do is to calm the nerves of such individuals as much as possible, assuring them that there are solutions to some of these things. That is just one of them.
“It can also lead some people right into depression because if the economy is depressed, also trying to translate their thinking can lead to the psychological depression because it gives their hopes in terms of how they can quickly loose it and all that kind of thing.
“But, if these issues are not properly handled, those that attempted suicide and fail would definitely try it again and in most instances, they would succeed the second time. So, close relatives should keep an eye and constantly feed such individuals with soothing words so as to reconfigure their thinking towards positives.”
According to an Islamic scholar and lecturer at the Lagos State University, Ojo, Dr. Alayinde Yusuph, suicide is Haram; it is forbidden. “You shouldn’t kill others let alone yourself. “Among the prohibited things in the Holy Quran, suicide is one of them because before the advent of Islam, the Arab used to kill their daughters to run away from hardship and all sorts.
But the Holy Quran frowned at it. It is called Wabil jannat. So, the Holy Quran forbids it totally.” Also, the Senior Pastor, Transformation Chapel, Emmanuel Ohere, told one of our Correspondents that as Christians, taking one’s own life is wrong and not biblical. “No man has the right to take his or her own life; the messages and admonitions from the church have really helped in curbing the ugly incident,” he added.
For Yusuf Ali, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), suicide is an offence against the state. “But that’s only if it is an attempt. So, the state criminalises it. If you succeed, there’ll be no one to charge you for anything. It’s an offence under the criminal law. “It’s felony.
A felony is an offence that is punishable with imprisonment of not more than seven years. But, it is when you attempt and fail that you have committed an offence under the law. In that instance, the state takes up the charge,” Ali said.
Reported by Taiwo Jimoh (Lagos), Kunle Olayeni (Abeokuta), Dan Atori (Minna), Dominic Adewole (Asaba), Sola Adeyemo (Ibadan), Uchenna Inya (Abakaliki), Babatope Okeowo (Akure) and Muhammad Kabir (Kano)
STFU you retar.d.d. Even the pix you attached has a picture of your kinsman who committed suicide by blowing his brains out coz he couldn't pay back the loan he owed his bank. People commit suicide everyday and everywhere and for different reasons. I just showed you evidence from the horse's mouth, an Anambra indigene, who exposed what you lots are trying to hide about the high suicide rate in your state as a result of poverty and you are here perambulating. Guy, you are a lost cause. Park well jo Olofo.

Reading a recent blog post from the Sustainable Communities series, Ede Ijjasz-Vasquez, Director of the World Bank Group
During our mission we discovered that five of the world largest dumpsites were in Nigeria, and in fact two of those dumpsites are in Ibadan considering the relatively low population is particularly alarming. It is program within the project to assist in creating a solid Waste Masterplan, although to ensure sustainability a major focus is needed to change behavior and to educate communities on the effects of discarding trash.
Which reminded me a rap video created by a young Hip-Hop group from Kenya, which features members of TS1, winners of Connect4Climate’s Voices competition, and using music to raise awareness of the issue of trash and the potential opportunities. This approach alone will not solve issues of solid waste in Nairobi, but certainly highlights the necessity of engaging in youth and creative industries in tackling complex issues
See this numbskull wey im brain dey leak. It's obvious those poisonous gases you've been inhaling from that pollution capital of the world you reside in is deteriorating your I.Q capacity. A dumpster is:
- a piece of land where waste materials are dumped. garbage dump, rubbish dump, trash dump, wasteyard, waste-yard, dump.
Even the U. S has dumpsites in some states you dumb fvck. At least no be for inside market Ibadan dumpsites dey like for your state. You better upgrade your thinking coz millionaires are being made daily from those dumpsites by way of conversation of waste to wealth while your state is waiting for federal and international bodies to rescue her from erosion menace ravaging your land, not to mention the polluted environment that infamously put her on the world map. I am presently busy so I really can't indulge your tomfoolery this afternoon. Your hands are already full with you having to defend your state from different angles. Dude, seriously, I hope Obiano pays you well enough to keep doing this shyt coz it can't be easy doing this 24/7 the way you be doing on here.

World Environment Day 5 Dirtiest states in Nigeria
Despite efforts by both the federal and state ministries of environment, some states in Nigeria have remained dirty.
In 1973, the United Nations General Assembly and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) set aside June 5 every year as World Environment Day (WED) to address environmental issues like global warming, deforestation and food shortages among many others.
Considered as one of the greatest annual events, the day aims at raising awareness about the leading issue of environmental sustainability.
Despite efforts by both the federal government and state ministries of environment, some states in Nigeria have remained dirty.
In no particular order, here are the five dirties states in Nigeria;
1. Ekiti state: A recent survey conducted by the Community-led Total Sanitation (CLTS) ranked Ekiti as the state with the highest number of persons who openly defecate in Nigeria. About 1.8 million residents of the state out of a total population of 2.7 million is believed to engage in the menace.
With heaps of waste along the New Ilawe Road (Few kilometres from the state House of Assembly), Ajilosun, Bank road, Oja Oba (Yoruba word meaning "King's market" and other locations in the state, Ekiti is sure one of the dirtiest states in Nigeria.
2. Lagos state: Often referred to as the Nigeria's commercial nerve centre, Lagos state is one of the most populated states in Nigeria, a situation which has stretched its infrastructures such as housing, health care, roads and waste management system beyond limits. The resultant effects is the development of suburbs, slums and ghettos with the poorest environmental conditions within the state.
The Dustbin Estate located in Awodiora, Ajeromi Ifelodun Area which is an expansive shack settlement erected on a heap of refuse located beside a canal, which drains waste, and floodwater out of Ajegunle is a good example.
Dustbin Estate in Lagos state
Despite the activities of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), residents still dump waste in drainages and canals in the state which leads to obstruction of the waterway.
3. Benue state: Also called the "Food basket of the nation," Benue is one of the states with the poorest environmental condition. Makurdi, lacks the features of a modern day state capital. Despite the existence of the popular River Benue, 80 per cent of the city lack potable drinking water. From North Bank, Wurukum, Wadata residents dump waste in drainages, uncompleted buildings and roads.
4. Oyo state: The ancient city of Ibadan is the third most populated city in Nigeria. Like Lagos, its huge population is the major reason for this.
Dirties states in Nigeria
5. Abia state: Popular for the production of over 70 percent of all locally produced goods in Nigeria, Aba (located in Abia state) has been ranked among the dirtiest in the state. Abia is also battling with the case of erosion which constantly destroys roads leading to loss of lives and properties.
Dirtiest state in Nigeria play
Aba, one of the dirtiest cities in Nigeria
LMAO! Dude, I already told you that I don't even have to worry myself digging up pictures of that pigsty and erosion ravaged state of yours that is in danger of losing as much as half it's landmass to erosion --according to your own governor -- because there are more than enough threads currently trending and taking care of such an expose in ways I can only dream of. You are better off going to defend your turf against the Abia folks currently butt-fuckkking your state all over Nairaland than this weak attempt at distracting us from your real problems by taking shots at Yoruba folks. Abia and Imo mafia still dey treat your fvckup wella, better go and face them and save whatever is left of your state's pride.

I said it, you guys are ignorant.
Ibadan is home to the Nigeria's most highly ranked university UI
Ogun is the fourth highest generator of IGR in Nigeria
Check this fact very well and quote me again.

Lagos is no man's land. Mention the other south west states that flourish better than se. Is it ekiti wey people dey shiit for bush? Or oshun wey dem don auction for olx?
Or ibadam the brown roof republic? Or ogun the land of ritualists as we've been reading here on nl everyday?
Ignore that Yoloba guy. Every state in the SE flourishes more than even Lagos. That is why every yoloba boy is running to the SE to 'huzzle'. Even Anambra IGR is more than Lagos, Ogun and Oyo combined. And Anambra has more industries than Lagos and Ogun combined.

Typical afonja lazy brain dead kinda thinking. the reason why afonja does not success in business. because of their parochial thinking
Lol. Yinmu. The only 'business' una sabi na to rent 2x2 shop and wait for customers to come and patronize you.
Sorry but 'Afonjas' aim higher in life.
Na our wonen dey mostly engage in trading. Our men are way more ambitious than to embrace trading wholesale the way you lots have, sorry.
i guess Lome, Abidjan, Accra, Niamey, Bamako, Douala, N'Djamena are more developed than Lagos,portharcourt, Abuja, what are the igbos looking for there, or what are the Yoruba looking for in lagos...
Guy, you mumu o. Peep this, a Yorubaman will ALWAYS have more stake and feel at home in Lagos than any other tribe or ethnicity in Nigeria for the simple reason that Lagos is in Yorubaland/region, duh! Just the same way all Igbos will always have more stake in Enugu than any non-igbo ever will. When everybody eventually bears their papa name, Lagos will remain, as it already is, a Yorubaland. Comprende??
or even ile ife, oshogbo , akure and the rest of your dead town are more developed than the east also and that is why the igbos are there?
Guy forget that thing. All dis your talk still won't stop Emeka and Chinedu from boarding the next bus to those areas in the SW you just mentioned for economic survival. We have the population, which equals to market and spending power. If the SE was so viable economically i am damned sure those guys fleeing the region would rather stay back. #Fact
In your ewedu thinking brain, Nigeria is more developed that China and india hence they keep flooding into Nigeria or those dead northern states are more developed than the east hence the igbos flood there
smart people flood to places where people are not as smart in a bid to exploit opportunities in those area where the locals cant. competition in the east is very tight, hence the igbos look for places that are less competitive. asides the natural traits of traders and entrepreneurs is to expand to more territories..
Now we are getting somewhere.
Point of correction, the smart Chinese and Indians are in India performing exploits (their companies and big businesses are the ones venturing into other countries to expand their businesse, not like una wey dey na only traders wey don resort to drug-trafficking una dey export). Your 'smart' ones NEED to emigrate to other parts of Nigeria to stand a chance of ever hitting it Big. That's why your elders are pleading and begging the vast majority of your successful folks who made their money outside the region to return home and invest.
Actually, you just used style to admit that your region simply isn't economically viable to sustain your best brains and almajiris hence the need for them to opt for 'greener pastures' outside the East.
lastly, we know about the advantage that has been given to lagos in terms of infrastructures and how the eastern region has been denied same. that is story for another day.
Lol. But i thought you guys are already the most 'developed'? So why do you keep bitctching?? Why don't y'all just make up your damn minds.

as for developing the east, who told you the east is not developed? at least to Nigerian/African standard? i guess you are still sleeping
This part of your post is the only one worth commenting on as the rest are just the ramblings of a deranged lunatic.
E be like say you failed English at school. Abeg if the SEast is so 'developed' as you claim, why do you all keep fleeing and depopulating the region (why would any sane person choose to leave their eldorado/developed/heaven for a 'lesser developed' part or hell??), even as far as claiming other people's lands? Why una dey run comot and prefer to only go back to your 'villages' (which is what you affectionately call your states) during Christmas
? Why una dey always shout marginalization and crying about your region being abandoned and neglected in the areas of development? Wetin dey chase una from the 'developed' East?? Shyt don't make sense.
