A fresh graduate of Yaba College of Technology, Yabatech, Oluwamuyiwa Oluwagbemileke has committed suicide after failing to raise N50,000 to repair a car he allegedly damaged.
According to Punch, the 27-year-old graduate of electrical engineering took poison on Wednesday, November 8, after he was blamed for damaging a car in a sachet water factory he worked for in Ojodu Berger, Lagos.
Oluwagbemileke was reported to have become desperate to raise N50,000 to repair the car but was unable to raise the money.
Frustrated by the turn of event, the graduate who was expected to start his National Youth Service Scheme took to his Facebook page to express his frustrations.
“When a man’s life is unstable, worried, downcast and destabilised, things he does right before will become wrong no matter the best he puts in. He loses focus and strength; he becomes unhappy and angry at everything even if he tries to wear a smiling face.
“Thoughts of death will come in the scene. He keeps asking the question, ‘why me?’ He becomes helpless and even if he’s among people, he still feels lonely. Life can be truly unfair.
“Advice: Never let your ugly situations weigh you down. When you notice things are not going well, check yourself before it makes you feel worried’
An hour before he committed suicide, Oluwagbemileke wrote another note on his Facebook page asking his family to take care of his mother.
