Unilorin student commits suicide over failed project

A student of the Faculty of Agriculture, Unilorin had failed in his final year project the last session and was made to repeat the current one but commits suicide.

It was also gathered that the deceased student decided to take his life because he could no longer achieve the Second Class Upper Division grade which he had expected to make in his final year result.

The deceased was said to have died after he drank a pesticide called Sniper.

An indication for reason behind the suicide was obtained in a note which the deceased left behind on a social media, indicating that he had been accused of ‘copy and paste,’ a reference to plagiarism in research works. Some neighbours also said that the deceased had all along suffered depression since he failed to make the last 34th graduation list of the institution.

His bloated body was, however, found on the floor when the door was eventually broken.

Sources in the community said that the deceased had communicated his intention to end his life to a female friend who however pleaded with him to have a rethink and face the challenge like most other men in life.

He had opened the conversation at about 3.39 pm when he said in short statements: “same research work, he said I did copy and paste. Ever since den, things changed from bad to worst. Am in a deep mess @the moment. My life don tire me. I feel like dying. I wish I can sleep and not wake up again.”

His friend, however, responded with words of encouragement, “Don’t give up bros, it gets better.” And as if he had accepted the admonition, the deceased had then responded, “I pray xo, Thanks a lot for ur concern. I appreciate a lot. May God continue to bless you. Amen.”
