A man allegedly sets himself ablaze in Lagos

My eyes beheld a very gory and pathetic sight today.

As I was driving home from work, I noticed a partly burnt man lying almost lifelessly on the ground on a car tire.

When I inquired, I was told by some eye-witnesses that the young man allegedly poured fuel on himself and set himself ablaze.


Then, I saw a five-litre gallon lying empty by the side and they said that was what he used to get the fuel.

I was further told that they were waiting for the police to come.


I wonder what would make such a young man decide to end his life and also doing it in such a cruel way.

It was one of the most frightening sights I have ever encountered and the image keeps flashing through my mind.

What a day!

Suicide rate has been on the increase these days.

What PROACTIVE steps do you think should be taken to curb the increasing rate of suicide in Nigeria?

Your suggestion may save someone!
