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 fight 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 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 message impossible to read.
Friends have taken to various platforms to mourn him.
