Speak Up Against Suicide And Depression - SADAF Ondo State

As part of steps in reducing the rate at which people in the society commit suicide, a group called Suicide and Depression Awareness Foundation (SADAF) organised a one-day sensitization walk against suicide and depression in Ondo State, Akungba-Akoko,  precisely. The walk took place yesterday Saturday, 3rd August, 2018 

The walk started from the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, main gate down to Iwaro Junction of the town. 

Market women, bike men, students, commercial and private drivers, amongst others were sensitized on the dangerous risk which people place their life. 

Cardboard having caption such as Say Yes To Life, Stay Happy and Be Strong, Been Jilted By Your Partner Doesn't Not Worth Killing Yourself, When There Is Life,  There Is Hope, Maa se Pokun so (Do not commit suicide) among others were seen in the hands of the organisers with songs to back their cardboard inscription such as Sniper lists more money than coke. 

Speaking after the walk with EMPIRE MEDIA NG,  the Ondo State SADAF Coordinator. Abodunrin Impact said the walk primarily is to reduce the depression and suicide rate in the society. He said that depression causes and makes one see suicide as the last option they choose, which is not so. 

He said SADAF is ready to continue this awareness not only in Ondo State but in other States of the Federation also.
