It is appalling how people take their own life. The popular insecticide ‘sniper’ that is formerly used to clear the house free from any form of an insect, has now become the biggest killer of men. Funnily enough, even the insecticides are surprised with the way humans consume sniper.
Sniper has done more harm than good, especially in Nigeria. Many people that are depressed have suddenly found comfort in consuming sniper.
Depression is the biggest cause of suicide in every country. It is a bad psychological state of mind that affects the reasoning of any man. A person who is depressed will never see a solution coming, frustration will set in, at that time suicide thought will be the best solution for such an individual.
