Omokri sends message to Buhari over high suicide rate

Reno Omokri, a former New Media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has sent a message to President Muhammadu Buhari over the high rate of suicide being committed by Nigerians.

Owojela's Blog recalls that a music minister, Michael Arowosaiye sometime last week committed suicide. Michael, who reportedly left RCCG two years ago to Shepherd House Church where he served as a worship leader, was said to have taken his life following financial issues and the inability to pay his house rent.

Reacting, Omokri called on Buhari to set up a National Suicide Prevention Team, ban the sales of sniper and also address the nation.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Omokri wrote, “Dear President @MBuhari, SUICIDE is at epidemic levels.

“I urge you to set up a National Suicide Prevention Team. Ban sales of SNIPER and similar substances.

“But most importantly, address the nation and give hope to the hopeless. God bless you.”
