Nigerian Pop Singer, Runtown, has reacted to the recent ban of the insecticide, sniper by the government as a result of the high rate of suicide cases in the country.
According to a Tweet by the Singer, he said banning of sniper is not the solution to the high rate of suicide as it only cures how but not why people are committing suicide
He wrote “Banning Sniper only tackles HOW people commit suicide not WHY people commit suicide. It’s like going to dry up the Lagos Lagoon because people use it as a tool for committing suicide. To truly curb this epidemic, we must focus on the reason WHY people do it.”
It would be recalled that the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) had recently placed a ban on production of smaller parks of the insecticides after series of suicide cases have been caused by its usage
