Popular musician cum Actor, Banky W has reacted to the news of the most recent suicide in Lagos, involving a wealthy woman who parked her SUV and jumped into the lagoon to end her life.
The actor who is known to be sensitive toward issues like this has suggested psychiatric centres where people can seek help as well as noting his own personal opinion of an escape route.
I just heard the heartbreaking news about the young lady who committed suicide by jumping off the 3rd mainland bridge in Lagos… Barely 48 hours after we discussed Anthony Bourdain.
This is a list of all the regional psychiatric centres in Nigeria (thanks @mocheddah). Please reach out and talk to someone. If you’re dealing with depression, it is not ridiculous. It is not something you should be ashamed of. If you feel like you’re done, and you have nothing left to live for, please believe that you are wrong.. Please talk to someone. Suicide is not the answer.
PS: My *personal* belief is that GOD is the answer. And if you’re in Lagos and willing to try Him, you can go to my church @mytph and talk to someone. Not trying to impose my personal spiritual beliefs on anyone.
