A 21-year-old student of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, allegedly attempted committing suicide at his home in Lagos state.
The UNN student identified as Obasi Augustine Chukwuemeka, was prevented from committing suicide at his home on Number 4 Alaba street Ejigbo busstop in Lagos state on January 7th by officers from Ejigbo Police Station.
According to a statement from Bala Elkana, the spokesperson of the Lagos state police command, an officer of Lagos State Neighbourhood Security Corps, alerted men of the Ejigbo Police Station that Chuckuemeka tied a rope in a loop around the ceiling fan in his home in preparation for committing suicide because he was scolded by his parents.
He was later rescued by the swift response by operatives from Ejigbo Police Station who prevented him from killing himself. He was then taken to the hospital for medical examination.
