A 32-year-old Nigerian bank marketer named Amarachi Ugochukwu took her own life on Wednesday at her workplace in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State. The distressing incident was confirmed by Benjamin Hundeyin, the state police spokesperson, on Thursday morning.

According to reports, Amarachi locked herself in the bank’s restroom and ingested pesticide, leaving behind a poignant suicide note that pointed to economic hardships and her despair about life. The grim note, shared on social media, conveyed her struggle with the challenges she faced:

“NOTHING IS WORKING IN MY LIFE. MY FIGURES ARE COLD. MY BRAIN IS CLOGGED UP. THE ECONOMY IS GETTING HARDER. MY DECISIONS ARE WRONG. MY MIND IS MESSED UP. THE FUTURE DOESN’T SEEM BRIGHT AT ALL, I SEE EXTREME HARDSHIP. I CAN’T BEAR THE PAIN ANYMORE. I’M SORRY MUM, I’M SORRY DAD, I’M SORRY MEME, OKWE, NAZOR, CHUCHU, IFUNANYA.”

The incident was reported to the police by the bank manager, leading to the confirmation of Amarachi’s tragic death and the initiation of an investigation. Her body has been deposited at Ikorodu General Hospital for autopsy.

This distressing event sheds light on the dire consequences of economic hardships on citizens, contributing to rising levels of despair and depression in Nigeria. Beyond the surge in crimes, there is a growing acknowledgment of the profound impact that economic challenges have on mental health.

Her poignant note suggests a plea for accountability and echoes the sentiments of many who grapple with the harsh realities of life in Nigeria. As the investigation unfolds, it serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need for comprehensive measures to address mental health challenges and provide support for those facing economic hardships in the country.
