SUICIDE ATTEMPT: Ten days after #Christabel, another UNIBEN student gulps Sniper
Another unfortunate suicide attempt story has resurfaced after a similar incident transpired at Ekosodin (UNIBEN students residential area) metropolis a while ago, Quincy Ikilo reports for TOWN CRIER.
Another student of the University of Benin residing within the school hostel, Tinubu Hall, attempted to end her life by allegedly gulping a popular insecticide named Sniper.
At about 9:37PM yesterday, Ifeoma, who is a final year student of the Faculty of Management Science, department of Accounting, reportedly drank Sniper.
Inquiring about the reason behind her attempt to commit suicide, her roommate told TOWN CRIER that she had recently complained about her phobia of spending an extra year in school.
With tears rolling down her cheek, her roommate said:
“It’s still a shock to me. She’s in the best position to tell you why she took such unfortunate decision. All I could say is that she had lately complained about her fear of spending an extra year in school. As you know, she’s a final year student and certain courses have been giving her grave difficulties. I can’t tell if she is being academically victimized, anyway. But the memory of spending an extra year in school is a torturous nightmare to Ifeoma. But is that enough?”
Ifeoma was immediately rushed to the school’s health center for medical attention and later transferred to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital, UBTH, where she is, at present in a critical condition.
