Nigeria’s top musician, Runtown has reacted to a ban on the sale of small bottle-packaged sniper by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
NAFDAC said it took the decision after recent suicides.
Meanwhile in his reaction, Runtown said banning of the insecticides may not stop suicide.
“Banning Sniper only tackles HOW people commit suicide not WHY people commit suicide. It’s like going to dry up the Lagos Lagoon because people use it as a tool for committing suicide. To truly curb this epidemic, we must focus on the reason WHY people do it”, he wrote on twitter.
