Young Abuja Photographer Commits Suicide, Leaves Note

A photographer identified as Emmanuel Omole has reportedly committed suicide.

He took his life at his residence in Abuja.

He left a two-page note before he committed suicide.

In the note, he spoke about his struggles.


“I haven’t been OK for a while,” he wrote.

“I’m really fighting some battles that I can’t even tell anyone. I wish I could open up to people close to me.”

He added that the issue he is facing is “winning the battle over me.”
He went on to advise people to check on their “strong” friends.

“I have lost my connection to God. The devil seems to have won and that is OK. I blame no one for this,” he added.

He recognized the effort of his mom in his life but felt he was a burden and did not want to stress her any longer.

He apologized to those who never gave up on him but added that he was tired of depending on them for everything.

He concluded: “I’m strong but not enough. I’m not enough. I haven’t felt enough for a while… But I say all this to say, I’m done fighting. My battle is over. And I pray everyone finds peace in that.

“I found peace.

“I have tried for a long time but it’s over now.”

Drops of tears smudged the ink in some parts of the note and this made some of his messages impossible to read.

A Facebook user, Goodday Odidi Aguriase, said “the young man committed suicide today in Abuja.”

He posted: “Many people are going through challenges, but nobody is willing to listen. Mr Emmanuel Omole, a talented photographer committed suicide by dropping a note about why he committed the act. Life challenges are too much.”

Aguriase who publishes Mindset Media Newspaper and Gabriovoice, an online platform, opined that people are too busy to check on others.

He added: “Some people only check on you when they need money or contact from you. I read this young man’s story, crying profusely.

“Once the person drops dead, writing condolence messages on Facebook is our interest. Fake people everywhere.”

“Emmanuel Omole taking your life was not the best, though nobody listened to your problem. Working, no financial growth to support your labour. Rest on!” he also wrote.
