A Nigerian Lady identified simply as Patience Akpan committed suicide on Wednesday May 17.
It was gathered that the young lady took a popular nigerian insecticide – Sniper and promptly died from it’s effects. The young lady, said to be in her late 20’s died at Bada hospital, Ajuwon area of Lagos State on Wednesday May 17.
She had left her father’s place that Wednesday afternoon before she was seen in another street within the area wringing in pains, with the sniper bottle still in her hands.
She had lived in that very area till 12 years ago when her parents split. She left with her mum after the split only to come back to visit her dad and commit suicide thereafter.
I think Sniper should be banned in Nigeria as it seems to be the popular choice for suicide among Nigerians, especially females.
