A 200-level student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK) identified as David Ogbonna has reportedly committed suicide in the school hostel.
According to SaharaReporters, Ogbonna committed suicide by hanging himself in the university’s hostel wardrobe after seeing his result from their last semester exams.
A source disclosed that no one had been allowed to get into the room where the incident took place until Ogbonna’s roommates were all interrogated by the authorities.
Meanwhile, one of the deceased’s close friends stated that the family had issued an official statement that they would like to mourn Dave in peace.
“My dearest David Ogbonna, I got the news of your demise just this morning and it has left me devastated.
“I do not want to believe you took your own life until the management of Nnamdi Azikiwe University of Awka gives a concrete reason as to why this has happened.
“The family has issued an official statement that they would like to mourn Dave in peace. May God rest your merry soul, Dave,” he said.
