According to a tweet from the “Godwin” singer, suicide occurs among teenagers and youths between the age of 15 to 29.
This comes after several reports of young Nigerians reportedly taking their lives and many more attempting to, especially by ingesting poisonous pesticide Sniper.
The singer has, therefore, urged the appropriate authorities to prioritise mental health in order to reduce the spate of suicide.
“Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29-year olds. Prioritize Mental health,” he wrote.
