The Management of the University of Ilorin on Friday said that investigations by the institution, revealed that its student, late Mr. Adigun Emmanuel, committed suicide as an eventual culmination of drug addiction.
The Director of Corporate Affairs of the university, Mr Kunle Akogun, made the revelation in a statement which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.
Akogun stated that late Emmanuel of the Faculty of Agriculture “resorted to the unsavoury action to ventilate his frustration over his failure in his final year project.”
“Mr. Adigun Emmanuel Adewale of the Faculty of Agriculture, committed suicide last Thursday November 29, 2018,” he explained.
He said that the university after a painstaking investigation revealed that late Adigun took his own life as an eventual culmination of his pathetic drug addiction.
The director further stated that the student must have unwisely adopted drugs to address the prolonged depression he suffered as a result of personal challenges he could not bear.
