Social media has been ablaze with Twitter users asking for suicide for a Nigerian student and Forex trader, Seyi Akinade who recently committed suicide, following a run-in with members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
According to his step brother, Snarky who made this known on Twitter, he said Seyi called for help on Twitter but no one seemed to answer. He also said he himself did not see the tweet until after his death.
His brother wrote “My younger brother died earlier this morning and I can’t help beating myself up for missing the clues he left as to what he was going through.
“My theory is that he committed suicide out of depression based on the way SARS officials treated him.
“He was learning how to draw from me…
Tho he was in school, he ran a forex trading Enterprise. Many people can attest to the fact that seyi is not a Yahoo boy.
“He did legit, he always wanted to be legit and Nigeria killed him for it. Up Nigeria! You guys have done it again!
“Please tag appropriate agencies too.Seyi is dead but there are many people contemplating suicide right now.
“Please pick up your phone now, dial that number.
One call can save a life Loudly crying face. Please Let’s get #justiceForSeyiAkinade”
Seyi posted this around this time yesterday.
Unfortunately I didn’t see the tweet,
I don’t know what happened or even if I could have helped.
Seyi is dead now.
