Although, it is still unclear why a 23-year-old, National Diploma 1 (ND 1) student, of Auchi Polytechnic, in Edo State, simply identified as Solomon, hanged himself, as his friends on campus admitted that he was in class for lectures on Friday, before the ugly incident.
According to a Source who pleaded anonymity,
“Solomon was in class on Friday and left for home after class. We only came home later in the evening to find him dangling from the ceiling of his room.
“He was a very quiet boy who took his academics very serious. He didn’t go out and never showed any sign of depression whatsoever.’’
According to the report of News Agency of Nigeria, Solomon was said to have been discovered dangling from the ceiling of his room on Friday night.
It was also gathered that, Solomon, a student of Public Administration, left a brief suicide note wherein the young man, asked one Miss Sandra to forgive him, and requested that his phone be given to her.
It was however, later confirmed from a source, who pleaded anonymity that, Miss Sandra was the late Solomon’s course mate and girlfriend.
The institution’s spokesperson, Mr. Mustapha Oshiobugie, said he is yet to be briefed on the details of the incident, but he admitted that, the ugly episode actually happened.
