Pressure that pushed Lagos doctor into suicide

 

*Colleagues recall his last day at work
Fresh insights have emerged as to why Allwell Orji, a 35-year-old medical doctor with the Papa Ajao branch of Mount Sinai Hospital, decided to take his own life by jumping into the lagoon in Lagos last Sunday.

A close associate of the deceased doctor told The Nation that he (Orji) once confided in him that he was fed up with life and “wanted to end it all.”

He said: “We were close and we often discussed about his life. He was a brilliant young man and he liked helping people. He was in the habit of taking part in free medical outreaches and he loved to study.

“Despite his condition, he was still studying further. He ought to be rounding off his post-graduate studies which would have enabled him to become a consultant,” the young associate said.

Although it was gathered that the deceased medical practitioner was a sickle cell anaemia carrier, the associate, who pleaded not to be named, said the deceased doctor sometimes had moments of mental instability.

Google Empowers 500,000 Young Nigerians In Digital Skills




Some of the success stories of the programme were unveiled at an event which took place at George Hotel, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Google on Wednesday announced that it has reached the one million milestone in its Digital Skills Africa programme. Out of the total figure, Google said about 500,000 were Nigerians.
