Reacting to this, @RealKamsi weote, RIP Ada Ameh. I’m lost for words. Mental health awareness is one illness that isn’t given as much attention as it would especially in a country like Nigeria.
@Ogundeji_OLA1, Wrote, Ada Ameh lost her only child last year and ever since then she has not been in good condition. It’s disheartening and saddening that she lost her own soul as well, she’s no more, a lot of people are going through a lot. May her soul rest in peace.
