A 23-year-old student of Auchi Polytechnic in Edo State has been reported to have committed suicide over unresolved issues with his girlfriend on campus.
The student, Solomon Oboh, was said to have committed suicide inside his apartment around Bawack axis of the state after returning from school.
The body of the student, who was a National Diploma (ND) I student of Public Administration, was said to have been found dangling in his room yesterday night.
He was said to have left a terse suicide note behind before perpetrating the act, in which he instructed that his mobile phone be given to one Sandra, his girlfriend and course mate, who he begged for forgiveness.
Some of the students narrated that the deceased was in class hours before taking his life and left for home after the lecturer concluded his teaching for the day.
According to one of the student, we only came home later in the evening to find him dangling in the ceiling of his room at the Bawack axis of Edo State.
‘He was a very quiet boy who took his academics very seriously. He doesn’t go out and never showed any sign of depression or whatsoever,’ the source said.
Speaking on the tragedy, the institution spokesman, Oshiobuge Mustapha, who acknowledged the incident occurred, however, said he was yet to be briefed on the details of what happened.
