A final year student of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) has commited suicide after completion of his project.
The final year student of UNIPORT identified as Prince Digbani, committed suicide using a poisonous substance shortly after making the announcement on his WhatsApp status.
The 500-Level Electrical Engineering student took his life in his off-campus room on Monday after repeatedly complaining to friends about his lack of fulfillment in life.
His friends claim he had told them his intention earlier and they strongly advised him against it but he later went home to his off-campus apartment and by 3:51 pm on Monday and started updating suicidal posts on his WhatsApp status.
His friend revealed that they called him severally after his updates became more worrisome but he refused to answer. By the time his co-tenants later broke his door, he was found convulsing after taking a poisonous substance.
He was rushed to the Lulu-Briggs medical centre where he was pronounced dead.
