MAN JAILED FOR STEALING FISH

This is one of the funniest stories I've heard but then its not so funny:
Tokunbo Talabi, a formal employee of Frozen Fish Firm in Lagos was sentenced to 18 months jail time for stealing 1,461 cartons of frozen fish and he was jailed with no option for bail or fine.

He was ordered to be locked up at the Ikoyi Prisons with hard labour. The criminal prosecution informed the court that Tokunbo stole fish valued at N4.3 million in batches, at the firm’s property at 9, Kole St., Orile Igamu, Lagos, between the year 2007 & 2008.

1st and foremost are they are just finding out?na wa oh! secondly why steal fish na, this isnt good oh! i guess its too make ends meet but then again the guy no try. But i'm thinking aloud when a govt official steals 10 billion naira or some exorbitant price its swept under the carpet and forgotten about, even if he is arrested something is done to get him out asap. Just shows the irony of Nigeria.What ever happened to Dimeji Bankole

but are you saying the man should not face the law because he stole fish?

what difference does it make?

anyone that does such a thing and is found guilty will face the law.

Here are some treatments for depression:-
# Sleep. Sleep has a strong effect on mood. When you don't get enough sleep, your depression symptoms will be worse. Sleep deprivation exacerbates irritability, moodiness, sadness, and fatigue. Make sure you're getting enough sleep each night. Very few people do well on less than 7 hours a night. Aim for somewhere between 7 to 9 hours each night.
# Social Support. Strong social networks reduce isolation, a key risk factor for depression. Keep in regular contact with friends and family, or consider joining a class or group. Volunteering is a wonderful way to get social support and help others while also helping yourself.
# Stress Reduction. Make changes in your life to help manage and reduce stress. Too much stress exacerbates depression and puts you at risk for future depression.
