A 200-level female student at the Adekunle Ajasin University, identified as Akungba, Feranmi Fasunle Omowumi, has committed suicide.
Many social media users have decried the rate Nigerian students are committing suicide.
According to a report by The Nation, Feranmi Fasunle Omowumi was a student in the Department of Political Science of the institution.
She reportedly drank poisonous substances believed to be sniper, and died yesterday’s morning after being taken to several hospitals.
She did not leave any suicide note to indicate the reason for her actions.
Some students attributed her actions to heartbreak but a friend who refused to say her name said the late Fasunle was not into any relationship.
Confirming the incident, the spokesman of the institution, Victor Akinpelumi, said the management sympathizes with the family.
