Story That Touches The Heart

I’m done fighting, My battle is Over,’ Abuja Photographer In Suicide Note

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

A young photographer, identified as Emmanuel Omole, has reportedly committed suicide, affirming in his suicide note that he was tired of fighting and that his battle was over in death.

He ended it all at his residence in Abuja, leaving behind a heart-wrenching two-page hand-written note before transiting.

In the note, he spoke about his existential struggles during his short life and how all his effort to pull through proved abortive.

“I haven’t been OK for a while. I’m really fighting some battles that I can’t even tell anyone. I wish I could open up to people close to me,” he wrote.

He added that the issue he was facing was “winning the battle over me,” while he went ahead to advise people to check on their “strong” friends.

“I have lost my connection to God. The devil seems to have won and that is OK. I blame no one for this,” he added.

Omole, however, acknowledged the effort of his mom in his life, but felt he was a burden and did not want to stress her any longer.

He apologized to those who never gave up on him, but added that he was tired of depending on them for everything.

“I’m strong, but not enough. I’m not enough. I haven’t felt enough for a while…

“But I say all this to say, I’m done fighting. My battle is over. And I pray everyone finds peace in that.

“I found peace. I have tried for a long time, but it’s over now,” he concluded.

Teardrops smudged the ink in some parts of the hand-written note, making some of his messages somewhat illegible to peruse.

Meanwhile, a Facebook user, Goodday Odidi Aguriase, said “the young man committed suicide today in Abuja.”

“Many people are going through challenges, but nobody is willing to listen.

“Mr Emmanuel Omole, a talented photographer, committed suicide by dropping a note about why he committed the act. Life challenges are too much,” he opined.

Aguriase who publishes Mindset Media Newspaper and Gabriovoice, an online platform, added that people are too busy to check on others.

“Some people only check on you when they need money or contact from you. I read this young man’s story, crying profusely.

“Once the person drops dead, writing condolence messages on Facebook is our interest. Fake people everywhere.

“Emmanuel Omole taking your life was not the best, though nobody listened to your problem. Working, no financial growth to support your labour. Rest on!” he also scribbled.
