Man attempts suicide over withheld school results


One Precious Ogbeide ventured into killing himself following purported failure of Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Edo State to release his results since 2018.

Ogbeide, according to report, spent five years in the school for a first degree programme, and same years after completion he is yet to get his results and be mobilised for the National Youth Service Corps scheme.

In the same boat with many other students of the school, the account said, Ogbeide fell into depression culminating in a suicide attempt on Monday.

“I received a call at about 3:30 pm on Monday that Ogbeinde had been rushed to the hospital. I was told he had been showing signs of depression and that they had tried to help in every possible way they could.

“The mother told me that he just stood up all of a sudden with a bottle and smashed it on the floor. They told me it was a slip. But he started to pierce his neck and body with the pieces of the broken bottle.

“It was the efforts of his relative present at the time of the incident that overpowered him before he was rushed to the hospital where he is currently receiving treatment,” an unnamed source told Punchng.
