After a 400-level student of Department of English and Literary Studies in UNN ended his own life some weeks ago
The University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) has recorded yet another suicide case as a final year student of the institution was reported to have drunk the now popular pesticide, Sniper.
According to the statement of the Mother of the deceased,
She found her son in a bad mood on the day of the incident.
“I followed him immediately to his room and started talking to him but he could not respond and when I looked closely, I discovered that his teeth had tightened up,” she said. “As I looked around, I saw an empty sniper bottle; at this point I raised alarm and my other children rushed to the room and we tried to give him red oil but his tightened teeth did not allow the oil to enter his mouth.
“We immediately rushed him to Faith Foundation Hospital, Nsukka and were later referred to Bishop Shanahan Hospital, Nsukka, where he eventually died.”
