Man threatened to kill self on Christmas day. Is he still alive?

 
 
His name is Diano Ovie Richy and on Sunday December 25th he threatened to take his own life on his Facebook page. People are telling me he actually did, can't confirm that 100%! Anyone with more info should please share with the rest of us.

Meanwhile friends are leaving RIP messages on his facebook wall...so disheartening. The messages when you continue...

He posted this and yet I bet some wrote "lol" at first then flowery eulogies later. Nigerians and their duplicity.

Anonymous said...

Are Nigerians not the most wicked people in the world? All the facebook comments were mostly by cruel people.

They should have told him not to commit suicide. They will all go hell. What a wicked world...

Linda why blog about this........ this guy clearly needs help and is depressed. How is blogging about it going to help

There should be a line when it comes to some issues that should be off limit. HAVE SOME RESPECT

This is so dishearting, went thru his FB wall, he used to sound so upbeat and hopeful, whatever happened to him happened a week or two before xmas, but he doesnt look poor, he was always so well dressed, I dont see him as someone suffering, pple asked him to go and get a job and he said he is an enterpuner, I find his action to be attention seeking, hurtful, sadistic and selfish to his family and friends,to even call his death a gift shows you the kind of person he is.
I lost my job in Feb 2009, A job where I used to earn 9.5 Million per annum, ventured into a bussiness with my savings of more than 25 million and was duped of all I have, I have no money, no friends, unmarried, added a ton of weight due to depression and I am almost 40,
Woke up on the 20th of Dec 2011 and decided to up dust myself up and move on, sucidie is the last thing on my mind. Hope is all you have and never let go of it.
To anybody who is going thru alot or is depressed and think of taking their own life, pls dont have hope, the is no hopeless situation, imagine the girl that lost her whole familyn the niger state bombing. Think of those suffering in Sudan, haiti, syria and the poor all over the world.
I hope he has found peace, May God give his parents, brothers, sisters, baby mama n his unborn baby the fortitude to bear the loss.

@ANONYMOUS 1:30PM....u re just a clown,i cant help laffing at ur statement........true talk

Nkaytchee said...

Linda, 13 minutes after posting the suicide message, he posted another message 'double wahala for dead body n d owner of dead body'.....I doubt if he really took his life

Nkaytchee said...

and dude is still adding new friends on FB....abi he is posting from his grave? seriously, people have worse issues and they r trying to pull through it, so if he thinks commiting suicide is a solution to his problems....he should think again!! question is, wher is he headed after death? HEAVEN OR HELL

Sodiq Aiyedun said...

it was caused by isolation. he needs people around him during his time of distress but no one's willing to help

Chili Pepa said...

This is so disheartening, and hé is just one of the numerous cases of depressed young people suffering in Nigeria. And it's so easy for us to attribute everything to démons and such rubbish when the réal démons are those who perpetuate à system that makes it difficult for young people to thrive. I'm sûre hé reached out for help and some people just ignored him. God is not on some throne far away, Hé is in that neighbour in need... And in you.

@Nkaytchee That was exactly what I was thinking. How can someone that is dead or dying still be adding people on facebook? This story is somehow o! Probably this is his way of calling for attention if no one was listening to him before. hmm this world...

He claimed in his about me section on fb that he beleives in God. this is exactly what he wrote
"I believe in JEHOVAH GOD as the creator and GRAND RULER of the whole world. I also aspire to become A WORLD RECOGNIZED ENTREPRENEUR with JEHOVAH's help. My life style is guided by THE CONTINGENCY THEORY."
if he believes in God why take ur own life?

Can u just imagine this post on his wall
"Diano Ovie Richy ‎@Akpos. God has stopped answering prayers n is busy perceiving xmas chicken being fried. Dat prayer will not b answered i can guarantee u.

if, truly he took his life, then he just cheated himself. yes, our problem can depress us atimes but taking ur life is foolishness.he talk of demons,since he has now taken his life as it is reported, then the demons in his life have won.the world is full of different challenges,yes, money is the main thing, but we cant all be rich and that is really wat create the balance in life.As long as u have the basic necessities of life, food, shelter, cloths and other things that makes life comfortable then u are getting there. for him to be facebooking, then he must have some extra change to load his phone except of course it belong to someelse. mayn God rest his soul.

grace said...

He clearly needed help but if only his facebook friends took him serious and helped him, he would still be alive.

There is a connection between bad governance and events like this. I'm almost certain that the same guy voted PDP and Jonathan in the last election, if he voted at all. Nigerians would rather die, than do the right thing. This is just an example of what happen when people make poor choices.

Anonymous said...

there are people going through worse scenarios on a daily but still manage to survive and believe that one day it'll all be history and things will get better. getting depressed and killing oneself is never the answer to issues like this. that's lame!!! #STUPIDITY

anna said...

i have confirmed he is dead.search "Osaghae Nehikhare" on facebook. thats a close friend of his and poor ovie thanked him in the suicide note. Osaghae updates his facebook with details of richy's funeral. im sad that none of his facebook "friends" botheed to see if he was okay. May his soul rest in peace. 2nd suicide im aware of aided by wicked lecturers.
linda it could have taken you less than 2 minutes to confirm his death rather than make it look like he was an attention seeker. RIP ovie richy.

so unfortunate that this guy was talking about killing himself for up to 2 days before he ended it ,nothing anybody could do to help him and some of his friends were even making mockery of him instead of them to take action and do something for him so sad..

Some of the ppl he sent friend request to probably just accepted his request that's y u all think he was still adding ppl.

This dude is insane, He is a failure and he is going to suffer in HELL

Anonymous said...

I do not in anyway justifying suicide or self pity.But everyone should understand that it was not like he was having so much fun and he decided to end his life because the fun was too much.
He was going through stuff and he killed himself when he reached his breaking point. some of us are more resilient than that. Point i am trying to make here is, all those people posting all those negative comment should understand that they are not helping others in the same situation.
2. It is wrong to judge people from position of strength.
3. If you think your situation is worse than his, well, you are not him and you don't know what he went through.
4. Thank God for who you are, what you are and where you are. it could be worse.
So people for the sake of his family and his unborn child let us just pray for him that he finds rest on the other side and pray for his family to find peace.
and to those having similar thoughts, it will get better.just put your trust in God and do your best.
One luv

its just unfortunate if really he took his own life...

Anonymous said...

This is horrible,no one could call him and try to talk him out of doing it. why are Nigerians so selfish. I mean someone wrote on his facebook page that he was going to kill himself in these hard times and no one took him seriously not even his so called friends.But when it comes time to say R.I.P everyone joins in. We should really check ourselves and learn to be more involved with pple. A simple phone call could have saved his life.

Yes he's truly dead, his friend on fb who happens 2 b his roomate said he hung himself n dt he (d friend) travelled 2 c his parents. Confirm frm him (ukane christian on fb) am in tears cos pple r suffering bt dt doesn't justify his actions, dnt knw if 2 say rip.

This story reminds me of "How to Save a life" by The Fray. So sad, there's no reason on earth to take your life. My condolence goes to his family.

Anonymous said...

you really do not know how bad other people have it cause you are not in their situation.
If you are happy and comfortable in your situation, then give thanks and praise to God and help as many people as you can.
Truth is if people knew what awaits at the other side, if it was not a sin to take ones own life, people will be dropping like flies and then we will all realize that things are bad in Naija and indeed the whole world

Linda, we know things are happening in this our country but I do not have an iota of feeling for this guy. If he really took his life, he was no other than a coward and a selfish man. He did not think of his unborn child before killing himself. Obviously he thought of only himself. If he knew he was going to take his life, why did he have to post it on facebook for publicity? Perhaps he thought he would be praised like the Tunisian guy that set himself ablaze and caused the Tunisian revolution earlier this year. That Tunis did that for a course and not selfishly, after all everyone in Tunisia and some other parts of the Arab world have benefited from it. I keep saying this; it is not worth taking one's life because life goes on perfectly after one is gone. There are lots of graduates of over 15 years out there without jobs and they are still here doing shitty jobs to make ends meet, believing something better will happen for them. I remember a vendor my dad used to buy newspapers from way back in 2001; he was a university graduate without a job. My dad could not help but have a conversation with with him because of how fluently he spoke English language. He graduated from UNN and couldn't get a job for 6 years before he advised himself to start selling newspapers. Vendor job is not easy and clearly, not for a lazy man. That man stayed in the sun all through the week for just minimal gains before my dad helped him with an office job. Guess what, he got someone to be selling the papers for him while he did his office job. There is nothing like pride when it comes to where you are eating from so long as you are not stealing or prostituting. There are countless people out there with similar problems but the still look ahead to the brighter side. I think this guy is one of these Delta guys with that mentality of entitlement. I come from an OIL producing area so I should get an ‘’OIL COMPANY JOB’’. I don't believe that guy took his life; he's pulling a stunt to get help. That guy too like himself to kill himself like that. And if he did, he should be having a stormy conversation with his creator now.

Obviously, a lot of people are going through a lot and I guess its ok for them to feel the way they do about it. But I can guarantee that every problem has a solution, all you need to do is to find it. Imagine how great a story you would have when you finally pull through it.

Yvette said...

Dear Lord, may my life never depend on the quick thinking, fast acting, and COMPASSION of Nigerians - cos those are none existent. Can you imagine that his friends saw this post and made no attempt to reach out to him and place him on suicide watch and help him through his troubles. Some are even condemning him to hell. How sad!

he is a bloody coward and indeed a failure cos only a true failure will take his life after Jesus died on the Cross for him,Any other non believer can pass this message to him when they meet in hell

childofthemosthigh said...

ANOTHER SOUL SATAN HAS SUCCEEDED IN TAKING OUT OF THIS WORLD.IF ONLY HE KNEW WHO HE WAS,IF ONLY HE KNEW HIS PRECIOUS WORTH TO GOD WHO LOVED HIM. I DOUBT USING THE TERM 'RIP' IS APPROPRIATE AS ONE CAN ONLY AND TRULY REST IN PEACE WHEN HE/SHE IS BACK HOME WITH THE CREATOR. His sufferings actually reminded me of the hardship i used to face before God revealed through his Word of who I truly am in Christ Jesus.And now my life is simply a success story to the extent I've been accused of attaining by wealth through other unrighteous ways. The Word of God works and the only I can thank God for all he's done for me is spreading the Good news.

People need to start getting tired of blaming the government etc for failure. Yes our government is not the best but that should not dictate your life. I refused to let it dictate mine and that's why some people don't understand how I became so rich in midst of our bad government when all seemed to be failing for them.

People need to stop wasting there time by merely sitting in church every Sunday and coming back home to endless suffering&failure.

The moment you begin to take God serious and begin to know who you are through the Scriptures only then will you begin to live the glorious and exceedingly abundant life He has called for you to live.
Suicide is a form of deceit satan uses to take out God's Children who are ignorant of WHO Christ is and WHY he truly came on this earth. If you still think Christ died on the cross to offer you salvation you still don't know the WHOLE meaning and reason of WHY Christ came.The answer lies in HIS word, check it.

How come he still added someone on fb yesterday? Or is someone using his ID? Life is not as hard as people make it seem...........

Felix said...

Based on some of the comments from seemingly close friends on his wall, it looks like he did take his life. Especially if you read "Edward Abigail's" post on her own wall. Such a sad story.

As much as i don't know this guy, I can actually relate with him. It's a cruel, cruel world out there. When you look around you, all you see are BIG LIES, from the government, from religious houses, schools, employers of labour, corporate advertisers... All a BIG LIE.

Nonetheless, I believe the truth is out there, but I also believe a lot of us are asking the wrong questions, and looking in the wrong directions. We need to take a moment and look at things more critically and stop following the bandwagon all the time. Because your pastor said so, doesn't exactly mean it is... We always say we want to make the world a better place, but was it exactly designed to be? Think about it

RIP Diano Ovie Richy!

Am addressing this message to those people on lib who thinks the guy is still alive. A close friend of his confirmed his death after he posted d message on fcbk 2 days later. He is very stupid for taking his life because a lot of Nigerians are really passing thru tough times. I bet his own case is d least of most people. His friends begged him not to commit suicide but he did. He was just used by d devil and killed himself cus of greed for wealth. He is an impatient fella

OYINKAN said...

eh ya its so sad.may he ind the peace he desired.honestly i dont know if to blame him or not.things are happening so many things.2011 was a very rough year for him,everything was just falling right infront of me.it was so bad dat one day in December i thot to end it all and then i remembered ma family,i thot abt a scene like how my friends and family will react when they hear about my death.the thought alone moved me to tears.i love ma family most especially ma mom n nephew i pictured dem crying and that hurt me more.just that thought and i changed my mind about commiting suicide.that was on 6th Dec.i went to tuesday service in church dat tuesday i cried to God and to d glory of God help came my way on 8th of December.my God is not sleeping he answered me and now i feel for som1 to commit suicide the person is selfish and heartless because if u think about the pain u will be causing ur family,u will change ur mind.look at him saying xmas gift.God will forgive him.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
