If someone decides that their life is not worth living whose business is it to discourage them from suicide? It is the individuals right to make this decision on their own.
Only losers fail suicide

This is a non-issue. If someone commits suicide the government doesn't bring them back to life and punish them. In reality everyone is free to commit suicide, regardless of what the law says, because, in general, enforcement is impossible. Only losers who suck at life so much that they can't even successfully end it might end up on a suicide watch list, or in prison where their options for suicide are physically limited.

Assisted suicide, on the other hand, is a real issue.

Suicide is a sad choice for anyone to make.

People who fail at suicide are often just people who are crying out for help, and are either not being heard, or they are being ignored.

Then why do you call him your "ex" husband? "Prophet" Salifu, you are a fool. No one will fall for your scams. I have cast a spell to give you hemorrhoids, to teach you a lesson. Enjoy.
