Jigan baba Oja, a Nollywood star, took to Twitter to bitterly regret how film directors taught viewers how to commit suicide.
Most people have learned to take their own lives out of the movies they watch, according to Jigan. He said that because of the negative effect it has on society, film directors should ensure that such scenes are not used in a film.
See how some people reacted to Jigan’s opinion;

@somebodys_1stson wrote “Lol does he realise this has no bearing on the root cause of why people commit suicide? When people are depressed and want to take their life it’s not the creativity of movie directors that inspires how they chose to exit. It is movie directors that in fact learnt from suicidal people”
