Nigerian OAP And Photographer Oluwapelumi Orungbe Dies By Suicide.

OAP N6 under whom she interned last year confirmed the news via twitter saying:

Nigeria has 20.3 suicides per 100,000 people per year (according to a  2015 data provided by the World Health Organization) and we must join forces to create awareness about mental illness as well as encourage people to speak out.

In a bid to tackle this phenomenon the Lagos state government launched scuicide help lines in the state. The Commissioner for Health Dr. Jide Idris said at the launch:

“I must stress that there are people available to help. So, “Let’s Talk” …if you are a student, “Let’s Talk”, if you are a parent, “Let’s Talk”, “If you feel alone in the world, Let’s Talk”.
