Bayelsa girl stopped from committing suicide
Why would a young girl decide to take her life?
The story has it that the girl who seemed to be depressed after a fight with her sister, sneaked away and got a bottle of a poisonous substance called 'sniper', used as a pesticide which she quickly drank in order to finish it all.
But her saving grace came in the shape of a young man who saw her in the act and raised the alarm. Neighbours quickly mobilised and went to the rescue of the girl who was by now writhing in pain and administered local first aid on her by forcing her to drink palm oil before rushing her to the hospital where doctors were said to have battled to evacuate the poison from her system.
But the question one is tend to ask why a human being would want to commit suicide after a sibling fight.
