100-level student commits suicide drinking sniper


A 23-year-old 100 level student of Osun State University, Ikire campus, Juba Orisajafor, on Tuesday committed suicide.

Juba killed himself with sniper ironically hours after he preached against suicide.

In the morning of the fateful day report said, he updated his WhatsApp status, condemning suicide, “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”.

However, few hours after the post, the deceased undergraduate did the exact opposite of what he preached against and was found writhing in pain in front of the hostel in the evening after taking a bottle of sniper.

Spokesperson of the Police, Mrs Yemisi Opalola has confirmed the incident.
