A final year student of Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area, Anambra State has allegedly committed suicide over a failed relationship.
The deceased, whose identity was yet to be ascertained, was said to be undergoing his Industrial Attachment (IT) preparatory to graduation when he was jilted by his lover.
A student of the institution, Orji Ikechukwu, described the deceased as an intelligent student who was full of life and energy, adding that his grade point was close to distinction.
Orji said: “He’s currently in his IT days, a student of Public Administration.
“He decided to stay in Oko for his one year industrial training, (but) instead of focusing on his training he decided to search for true love.
“His girlfriend recently broke up with him and the news devastated him, and on Friday, when he could no longer endure it, he drank a brand of insecticide and died.”
Contacted by the reporter, the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr Chijioke Ibeziakor, said he was not aware of the incident.
He, however, promised to get back to the reporter later.
