A student of Obafemi Awolowo University, Afolaranmi Mercy has committed suicide on the early hours of Thursday, 26th October.
The 16 years old part 1 Microbiology student’s death was confirmed by her neighbours who claimed that the source of her death is isolation and emotional pressure.
She was believed to have lived a very isolated life and rarely associated herself with neighbours and classmates.
Emotional pressure could be very disadvantageous to health and this was said to be what led her to the gruesome act.
More information reaching us from some of her classmates stated that her death was also as a result of massive failure in their CHM 101 exam.
A classmate and friend of the deceased name withheld, claimed that she the deceased said she had an E in the course which left her depressed and emotionally traumatized.
Mercy’s death has been confirmed to be caused by a mixture of rat poison and battery extracts which was noticed as the Sabo residence was rushed to the hospital before she later gave up the ghost.
The Division of Students’ Affairs OAU confirmed her death.
May her soul rest in peace.
