Unilorin Student Commits Suicide Over Failure Of Project by Ebullience(m): 5:50pm On Dec 03
A student of the University of Ilorin in his mid-20s, name withheld, has reportedly committed suicide at the weekend over unmet academic expectation.
Tribune Online gathered that the deceased, from the Faculty of Agriculture, had failed in his final year project the last session and was made to repeat the current one.
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.

The incident had reportedly happened last Thursday night at Oke-Odo community, a student-populated area in Ilorin metropolis, however, the corpse was only discovered on Saturday morning after neighbours noticed foul smell oozing out of his room. 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.

According to available records from his social media interactions, the deceased had uploaded a picture of the Sniper on his WhatsApp page at about 5.14 pm last Thursday, some two hours after he had lamented online about his situation to his friend.

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.”

However, by the time he uploaded the Sniper picture, his friend apparently became frantic and pleaded with him not to take any wrong step. The friend said: “Abeg, Calm Down. Abeg you in the name of God. Nothing Happen wey God no know about ooo please don’t do anything stupid ooooo.”

When contacted, director of information for the university, Mr Kunle Akogun, said that he was not aware of the incident. Also, Police public relations officer (PPRO), of the state command, Ajayi Okasanmi, said that his office was also yet to be briefed but promised to get in touch with the appropriate quarters on the development.

This guy nor see half of what my supervisor did to me during my project, I swear.

My God not let you experience depression otherwise you know how insensitive and childish this comment his. See how quickly you judged someone you do not even know

Sadly this is the case with the Nigeria of today. Depression is damn real. Let's try our best to be of support to the people around us, be slow to judge others
And who ever is going through such phase please speak to someone about it

It is well

Bleep, depression is real, he should have considered his parents and how much he will miss the sweet things of this world. I pray God will forgive all your trespasses and console your parents

Big mistake. Shouldn't have done that. It's not like a job is readily available when one comes out. Big mistake

Govt should ban Sniper® ,
the same way they Banned Tramadol.

It is gradually becoming the route
of choice for people looking for an easy
way out.

And parents should stop putting too much
pressure on their kids for academic excellence.

First Class degree doesn't guarantee anything
in Nigeria.

If only he knew people spill and splash before they finally graduate from that same institution. During my time in a popular nigerian university around 1999 my project na wuru wuru I do. But thank God say my supervisor no sabi book so he literally thought I was doing the correct thing. People were frustrated, everybody just wanted to graduate even if na third class.

But thank God for where I am today. No be only book we come this life come read. Channel your energy and gifts somewhere more productive.

Taking your life just because of school, that's awkward. Many can be done without school.

RIP
