Nasarawa:  Female undergraduate commits suicide

A 100-level female student of Nasarawa State University (NSUK), Keffi, identified as Maikeffi Redemption Sarah, reportedly took her own life by consuming a poisonous substance.

The 21-year-old undergraduate, pursuing a degree in Microbiology, was the fourth and last born in her family.

The incident took place on a Friday evening at an off-campus lodge near Family and Friends Hotel area, opposite Nasarawa State University, Keffi.

The young woman's death has been attributed to deep emotions and depression.

Her male friend, who posted the news of her death on Facebook, confirmed the tragic incident on phone to reporters.

The circumstances surrounding the student's emotional state and the factors contributing to her decision to take her own life are deeply saddening.

“We spoke with her Thursday evening and she was to come to Akwanga from Keffi, attend a wedding today Saturday, then go back tomorrow Sunday, just for me to hear of her sudden death” he said.

It was gathered that some students and neighbours made efforts to neutralize and save her from the unfortunate incident by using palm oil but it proved abortive.

The lifeless body of the deceased has since been deposited at the mortuary in Keffi.
