In what will come across as a really startling development, a 23-year-old student of the Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, identified only as Solomon has reportedly committed suicide.
It was learnt that the corpse of the National Diploma 1 student of Public Administration was found dangling in his room on Friday.
He was said to have left a suicide note behind in which he begged his girlfriend and course mate, one Sandra, for forgiveness.
A source said the student instructed that his mobile phone should be given to his girlfriend.
The source said, “Solomon was in the class on Friday and left for home after lectures. We only came home in the evening to find his lifeless body dangling from the ceiling of his room in the Bawack area of South Ibie. He was a quiet boy who took his academics seriously. He never showed any sign of depression.”
Meanwhile, the spokesperson for the polytechnic, Mustapha Oshiobugie, who confirmed the incident, said he had yet to be briefed about what happened.
