The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has told Nigerians to blame the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, federal government for the recent suicide deaths and suicide attempts in the country.

In a statement on its official twitter handle, @OfficialPDP, the party said, “Nigerians should hold APC Nigeria and Muhammadu Buhari government responsible for the rampant suicide and suicide attempts.

“The failure of APC Nigeria led government to provide basic amenities and revive our ailing economy has forced Nigerians to commit suicide.

"APC Nigeria professionally corrupt and visionless government is reason for suicide and many killings in Nigeria”

Recall that last week, a medical doctor, Allwell Orji jumped into the lagoon from the Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos.

Also, the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, on Friday rescued two women who attempted to commit suicide by jumping into the same lagoon. 

According to the Lagos State Police Command, the women, in separate incidences, attempted to die in the Lagos Lagoon.

One of the women, Abigail Ogunyinka made her way into the water but was quickly rescued by divers.
