Popular Nigerian comedian and actress, Anita Asuoha, better known as Real Warri Pikin, has revealed that she tried to commit suicide in 2018.
She opened up about the incident in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
According to her, she took the drastic step because she and her husband, Victor, were neck-deep in debt to the tune of N22 million (Twenty-Two Million Naira).
She said things were so tough for the family that she attempted to end her life in June 2018 by taking a drug overdose. She said she was taken to three different hospitals before she finally regained consciousness.
She said after she survived the suicide attempt, she knew God did not want her to die yet because he still had plans for her.
”In 2017/2018 I had issues. Actually, I and my husband had issues, financial issues because we were in debt and everything. Then, I attempted suicide on June 6, 2018, but I didn’t die. Then they carried me to three different hospitals. In the last hospital when I woke up, I was like so I didn’t die? That meant God didn’t want me to die.”
