A Nigerian man identified as @ayofilmworks on Twitter has dropped a suicidal note on his page.
The man revealed in his tweet that he has been going through depression for the past 16 years and he has not been able to talk to anyone about especially his family members who criticize people with mental problem.
“Hi, by the time a majority of y’all read this, I’ll be dead. I took my life at a gun range. it was swift and virtually painless; aimed right for my medulla. I’m sorry to those who have loved me while I lived, and I wish I had reciprocated your efforts equally.
no, it wasn’t anything spiritual/magical/mystical, and pls don’t try to make it out to be. that annoying speculation is literally part of what kept me from seeking help from my own family. everything always boiled down to prayer and spirits. no real help.
I’ve been depressed since 16 yrs old and it just never let go. seeing the way they reacted to the mental health issues of others (mocking/dismissing depression as a joke or passing feeling) really discouraged me from EVER speaking to them regarding what I was going through. ”
A scheduled tweet from him posted five hours ago reads;
“Please don’t make any funky photoshop wing edits of me. I’ll personally come back to life and slap you. (these are scheduled tweets btw, I’m not tweeting from the afterlife… be a lot cooler if I was tho)”
Some of his followers believe the man has died now and took to his comment section to mourn him.
