Emmanuel Adedeji, a 200-level Management and Accounting student at Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile-Ife, Osun State, committed suicide.
Late Adedeji was said to have ingested a common insecticide on school grounds and died a few minutes later behind the Mechanical Department, also known as the Spider House.
Abiodun Olarewaju, the institution’s spokesman, confirmed the incident.
He said;“We appeal to parent and guidance to please let thier children know that failure or depression occasioned by whatever suicide should not be an option.
We want to sympathise with the parent and friends of the deceased. The boy was at his formative age. We heard that the boy left a suicide note. It pains us that the boy is dead. The reason for his action is not yet known.”
