First Class UNIBEN student commits suicide

March 10, 2018

A 500-level Computer Engineering Student of the University of Benin, identified only as Adam, on Thursday evening, hanged himself inside his room.

According to reports from his close friend, Adam attended classes as usual that very day, returned home, charged his phone, washed his clothes, then went inside his room where he hanged himself within 20 minutes of locking the door.

His lifeless body was only discovered when his sister, who came from Ekenwa campus, forced the door open. The deceased is said to be a sufferer of Bipolar disorder (once known as manic depression or manic-depressive disorder).

We reached out to a close friend of his and he shared his grief.

The cause of his death is still unknown but reports suggest that it may be depression.

May his soul rest in perfect peace!
