An Abuja-based photographer, Emmanuel Omole, has committed suicide.
He left a suicide note where he expressed the inner struggles that brought him to the point of taking his life.
The note reads in part:
“I haven’t been OK for a while. I’m really fight some battles that I can’t even tell anyone. I wish i could open up to people close to me, I have been dead inside for too long.”
According to him, the issue he was facing was “winning the battle over me.”
In the note, he advised 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.
“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.”
