Nollywood actor Jigan baba Oja took to twitter to lament bitter about how movie directors have taught viewers how to commit suicide.
According to Jigan, most people learnT how to take their own lives from the movies they watch. He mentioned that movie directors should ensure that such scenes are not included in a movie because of the negative impact it has on the society.
In his words;
“A lot of movie directors has directly or indirectly thought the viewers on how to take their lives by committing suicide, either by hanging to a ceiling fan or using drugs, this particular scenes should never be in a movie !!! Come and defend it please”
See how some people are reacting 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”
