Banning Sniper only tackles HOW people commit suicide not WHY people commit suicide.— Runtown (@iRuntown) June 22, 2019

This is coming just a day after the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC said the ban became necessary because of the recent wave of suicide cases across the country has been linked to the intake of Sniper.
“Recently, some suicide cases have been associated with people drinking Sniper. Henceforth, we call on the agro-chemical industry to enhance their distribution channels so that this product (Sniper) gets to only accredited distributors and marketers.”
