A 100 level undergraduate of Osun State University, Ikire campus, Juba Orisajafor has commited suicide in his hostel.
The undergraduate, aged 23, was said to have gulped a bottle of sniper before giving up the ghost.
It was gathered that the deceased had updated his WhatsApp handle where he counseled his friends against suicide fee hours before he reportedly took his own life on Tuesday evening.
The WhatsApp post reads: “Often time I ask myself, Why do people commit suicide? Perhaps because they’ve got no one to encourage, motivate or guide them or because they felt there is no solution to whatever problem they are going through. Perhaps they forgot there’s more to enjoy when there’s life (hope) is not lost”.
Sources said that one of the students in the hostel where Orisajafor was living saw him lying unconscious in front of his hostel around 6:30pm on Tuesday.
The source said: “He (Orisajafor) was rushed to a hospital where he was confirmed dead by a doctor. Students informed the school security that informed the police.”
Spokesperson of the Police in the state, Mrs Yemisi Opalola confirmed the incident saying the Chief Security Officer of UNIOSUN, Tunde Akintibubo, reported the case.
“We visited the scene where the victim was met lying totally unconscious and later confirmed dead by a doctor in Catholic Hospital Oluyoro Apomu.
“An empty bottle of Snipper was recovered and the body of the deceased was deposited in a morgue for autopsy.”
When contacted, the University spokesperson, Adesoji Ademola could not ascertain the reason why the young undergraduate commited suicide.
