Young Nigerian says goodbye on Facebook, hangs himself yesterday

Published

on

The picture seen below is the picture of Ayodeji Balogun, who said a goodbye yesterday evening on FB, and today he is no more. Friends of the deceased said he injected himself with Go 90 at his home early this morning, and later hanged himself on a mango tree at his residence in Ipaja, Lagos.

The deceased was a student of the National Open University, Lagos and an ex-student of CMS Grammar school, and he seem to have been going through some difficulties in school. A lot of people claim he would have been saved if there were people to talk to about his psychological condition, but sadly none existed for him at that time and he took his own life, one that can never be regained again.

    He shd rest in pieces. He do not deserve life. What kind of psychological or physiological difficulty was he facing in life? Do i need to explain the one i faced and is facing? He shd go to hell. If everybody who is faced with problems stars hanging themselves, who will remain.

    Oh God in heaven, pls save us & our youths frm dis becoming trend of comiting suicide. Purge our hearts and thoughts of all forms of satanic and demonic influences.Grant us ur mercy & give us the grace to face life challenges in whatever form it may come,knowing dat in U,we will overcome in Jesus Name I pray.

    If u believe in dis pray, especially as a youth, re-sound and re-echo dis prayer in your hearth. For anoda form of evil is rearing its ugly head in our midst again and we must resist it in its entirety. Abt 2weeks ago, it was a student from UNN and now dis. B4 we know it, it will become the order of the day…..it is enough, we are already suffering from a lot…. Gayism, hemosexualism, lesbianism, bombing and suicide bombers…..name dem.

    All these are alien to our belief, culture and tradition. Must we copy, learn and adopt foreign norms and practices dat are not good for us? In my faith and tradition, taking another’s life let alone yours is an abomination…. A TABOO!!!

    No matter the challenges of life we face, we can OVERCOME. Be positive, look beyond the present for “No condition is permanent”. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. If you feel too burdened/troubled/wronged or whatever to dat point you think its over…… Wait! Just wait!! It is not over. Yes, it is not. Have a second…. Your solution and help is just close by.

    Open up….talk to someone, seek help, seek advise and counsel. Pls don’t die in silence….talk and shout it out if need be. And I bet you, you will be better off soonest. May God help us all!!!

    If a man doesn’t worth leaving why must such person leave ?
    What on earth will make a man to kill his or herself?
    If the man desire to this way should we conduct vigil for his demise ?
    Is saving the only way to survive?
    If really you kill yourself my friend you will be ask of your life but if it is someone that killed you and twist the story that person will see know peace now and forever more.may the lord who see beyoung us judge

    @ tony, are u saying there is a justification for taking your own life? Am not in support of casmir and chuks insulting the dead but with ur statement ‘u don’t have enuff information to know what really happened’ indicates that you are making a case for him killing himself. Please note, what ever information available to him, you or anybody on earth, THERE IS NO REASON WHAT SO EVER TO TAKE YOUR LIFE. For further clarification read your bible on what happens to those who take their live. May his soul rest in peace.

    This is sad. Death is death, however it happens. Some people, just like a tree refusing to bow to the strong forces of a strong wind, have a strong will despite all odds. We all carry our individual share of life’s troubles, but there are people who cannot stand it alone, but just need an extra voice to keep them pushing. To some of us, Ayodeji might have done the stupidiest of all things, but let us don’t throw away the guess that he might have just needed someone to encourage him with a word or more…perhaps, only perhaps, his death might have been avoided. People dont just wake up to commit suicide, the thought would have been nursed within them overtime.

    LOOK HERE, I WOULD NEVER SUPPORT SUICIDE NEVER. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH HELL AND BACK AND I WOULD NOT SUPPORT SUICIDE….NONETHELESS, THE INSENSITIVITY,LACK OF COMPASSION,LACK OF SYMPATHY EXPRESSED BY NIGERIANS IS MIND BUGGING AND EVEN WORSE THAN SUICIDE. YOU JUST READ THAT A MAN IS “DEAD”, HE HAD ISSUES, AND THAT IF YOU HAD HELPED HIM OUT HE MAY HAVE LIVED. INSTEAD OF SHOWING CONCERN AND CHECKING FOR THE NEXT MAN WHO MAY WANT TO COMMIT SUICIDE AND LEND HIM A HELPING HAND YOU START TO REIGN ABUSES ON THE DEAD MAN. IF THIS IS THE CONDITION OF THE HEART OF THE YOUTH IN NIGERIA I HERE SAY THIS COUNTRY IS DOOMED. WHAT A SHAME!!! ITS A PITY HE TOOK HIS LIFE I WISH I WAS THERE TO CONSOLE HIM AND GET HIM OUT OF THE SUICIDE MENTALITY. R.I.P BROTHER… ONLY GOD REALLY KNOWS.

    Did you guys say PEACE? He is wicked and the Bible records that “there is no peace for the wicked”. He is heal-bound period. Let us hear this: NO MATTER WHAT WE FACE OR WHAT IS FACING US, LET US NOT TAKE OUT OWN LIFE. THIS LIFE IS PRECIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CREATED LIFE. PEOPLE DO NOT TAKE YOUR OWN LIFE NO MATTER WHAT. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

The potential for iGaming in Nigeria uncovered

Published

on

There is a growing positivity surrounding the Nigerian iGaming industry. As the nation breathes a collective sigh of relief following the announcement of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), it’s hoped that many burgeoning industries such as the world of iGaming can be allowed to flourish and bring much-needed tax revenues to the country.

Many analysts within the iGaming industry believe Nigeria has the potential to become Africa’s iGaming hub. Its domestic market is already forecast to be worth $2 billion, due largely to sports betting and the fascination with Nigerian soccer stars overseas like Odion Ighalo at Manchester United. Meanwhile, the domestic penetration of smartphones is also recognised, with some 83% of the population now owning a mobile device.

Nigeria was also a major focal point during this year’s SBC Digital Summit Africa, which was understandably conducted virtually earlier this month. Ahead of the summit, experts enrolled in the event were asked to vote on which African country offered the best foundations for iGaming operators to thrive. Nigeria outperformed every other nation, with 31% of all votes labelling Nigeria as the country with the highest potential to make a real
success of its domestic iGaming sector.

Even South Africa, which has a well-established domestic iGaming market, ranked second with just 28% of the vote. Prospective Nigerian iGaming operators should certainly take a leaf out of the book of South African iGaming brands, many of which have cultivated a strong customer base through the use of incentives and sign-up bonuses. The vast majority of offers available at platforms like Casinos.co.za, direct gamers to the safest and most reputable
platforms.

One of the main reasons that industry experts believe in Nigeria’s iGaming potential is that it already boasts an engaged target demographic. Many of its young adults are already betting on sports like soccer and boxing, and there is a feeling that introducing them to casino gaming verticals would not be too difficult a stretch. Marry that with a growing number of smartphone users, which is predicted to reach over 140 million people by 2025, and you can
see the potential for iGaming apps and web applications to provide immersive, secure gaming
on the go.

Presently, the country has three separate bodies responsible for licensing online betting activities – the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC), the Special Control Unit against Money Laundering (SCUML) and the National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion (NOTAP). At the time of writing, online betting at a domestic Nigerian site is strictly prohibited by law. Loopholes regarding offshore operators make it possible for
Nigerians to play elsewhere, but it seems somewhat short-sighted for the Nigerian government to steer clear of creating its own regulated, revenue-making iGaming industry.

In a nation of substantial population, supporters of developing a domestic iGaming industry in Nigeria believe that the most would be a positive step, creating new career opportunities for everyday people. This could be in customer support, game development or any other facet of an iGaming operator. All the while, generating tax revenues for the Nigerian government and helping to breathe new life into the domestic economy.

There is a general feeling that Nigeria’s gaming industries tend to follow the same path as South Africa’s. The SBC Digital Summit Africa revealed that there has been a “seismic shift” from sports betting markets to casino games in the last eight months, including live dealer tables, that’s according to Sean Coleman, CEO of the South Africa Bookmakers Association.

Live dealer games seemingly “appeal to millennials” across South Africa. Dean Finder, CEO of Evolution Services SA believes the fact that live dealer games are “not gender biased” is an opportunity to reach out to female players, which are an often “unserved market” across Africa.

For these trends to follow suit in Nigeria, operators will need to build further trust in their
games and regulatory measures to curry favour with the country’s legislature.
