Hadiza and the commissioner got married on July 9, 2014, few months before he married his fourth wife who happens to be Hadiza’s friend, on October 28, 2014.

Back then, it was gathered that it was Hadiza who pleaded with her husband to marry her and her friend, Rekihat so that she would have a mate to play with.

For whatever reasons, Hadiza has ‘cried’ out for help even if it looked subtle, the commissioner needs to look into his own home affairs ASAP.

Also, friends and family members of Hadiza also need to reach her now; she obviously needs to be attended to, promptly.

In June, a Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr. Ibironke Thomas, called for more awareness, continuous education, early detection and treatment to reduce the burden of depression in Nigeria.

Dr. Thomas, who works at the Synapse Services Centre for Psychological Medicine, Lagos, made the call in an interview with Newsmen in Lagos.

According to her, mental disorders, including depression, are still not regarded as serious health problems in the country.

“Depression is a medical illness contributed to by an interplay of both biological factors, that is, genetic predisposition, hormones and neurotransmitters and environmental factors such as adverse life events.

Due to lack of awareness, many people do not know that they or someone they know have depression and try to cope with it sometimes for years without the necessary help.

Although, knowledge of existence of mental health problems is improving with education, information dissemination through the media and NGOs, the level of this awareness is still quite low. In general, psychological illnesses are not regarded as `serious’ problems.

There is also a lot of stigma and discrimination attached to people who have psychological disorders. People usually seek help when symptoms become severe, incapacitating or embarrassing,” she said.
