Tragedy struck on Sunday evening at the Faculty of Arts, University of Benin, UNIBEN, main campus when a final-year student jumped from the second floor of one of the hostels and died.

The deceased male student, whose identity is still unknown as at press time, committed the suicide after failing his examinations, which made him suffer depression. FirstNews gathered that the student was supposed to have graduated but for the failure in the examination. It was however not clear if the deceased left a suicide note, but his remains which littered the floor have been deposited in a morgue.

Efforts to get the reaction of the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr Michael Osasuyi were unsuccessful as at press time.

This is as a result of depression, the end product being suicide. The student must have been going through a lot lately. It is quite a pity.

May his soul rest in peace
