A 400-level student of the Department of English and Literary Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), Enugu identified as Chukwuemeka Akachi, on Monday, allegedly committed suicide, the police has confirmed.

Mr Ebere Amaraizu, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Enugu state, who confirmed the incident to newsmen on Today, said it is “pathetic and unfortunate.”

Amaraizu said: “The suicide of a UNN 400 level student of the Department of English and Literary Studies on Monday is pathetic and unfortunate. “Police will investigate circumstances surrounding the suicide.” An eyewitness account said that Akachi went to an uncompleted building on Sullivan Road, Nsukka, where he drank two bottles of “Sniper’, an insecticide, and slipped into coma. He said that the deceased was discovered by some passersby, who reportedly saw him in a state of coma.

According to the eyewitness, Akachi posted a suicide note on his Facebook wall shortly before he committed suicide, as follows: “Forgive me. In case you are the one who found the body, I am really sorry. It had to be someone you know. “I have chosen Jo Nketaih’s poem as my suicide note: “They said you came looking for me. I don’t drown, I was the water, “Where do atheists go when they die! Lol. Amen.” Also, Akachi was said to have posted on his Facebook on May 12 that “My mental health has been on life support for a while now. Thanks to those who call. Text. Visit. “Speak to me. May we always remember. May we never forget. You May have added a few hours, months or days to my time here. But you know life support is expensive right?
