We appeal to Nigerians to be their brothers keepers. The filler we are getting is that she has suffered depression and people around her knew all this, they ought to have refer her to some one elderly or someone who could be of help to her on psyco-emotional issues. We sympathize with ourselves especially the parent who lost a young lady with future bright. I want to admonish that this world is filled with ups and downs.
Emotional, psychological and academic frustrations should not make anyone to resolve in taking his or her life. Her remains have been evacuated and we involved the police”.
