Two students of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) community have reportedly committed suicide.
The two undergraduates are from the faculty of Administration.
According to InsideOAU, a 200 level student of Business administration Department, identified as Emmanuel, allegedly drank a poisonous substance called “sniper” to end his own life.
Inside OAU media gathered that the deceased was rushed to OAU health centre via an ambulance, but he was brought in dead; had given up the ghost.
It was also reported that another part 4 student of OAU, from the department of management and accounting, faculty of administration, whose name hasn’t been known yet, committed suicide earlier today and was rushed to the health centre. Unfortunately, his life was also lost in the process.
This has led to a protest on OAU campus this morning as students find it very strange and sudden.
The entire member of Inside OAU Innovation expresses our condolences to the family of the deceased, course mates and the students of OAU campus. May the Lord grant the ability to bear the loss.
