A student of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, identified as Daniel Mba, has committed suicide by jumping from the third-floor of a storey building on Friday, March 12.
According to reports, the 300level student of Biochemistry, was caught cheating with his phone during the ongoing examination, prompting the invigilator to tear his script few minutes to the end of the exam.
The lecturer reportedly seized his phone and handed him a new script to start afresh.
Following the incident, the deceased left the examination hall and went to his lodge at Onuiyi, in Nsukka Local Government Area of the state, where he plunged from the third floor of his lodge around 11:34 pm, after the poisonous substances including rat poison he ingested failed to produce immediate result.
An occupant of the lodge, identified as Nkechi Abo, said after the incident, they rushed to the deceased room where they found rat poison, bleach containers and syringes.
Another occupant, Christabel Okpara, told Vanguard that they alerted the caretaker when they found the student struggling for life after plunging from the third floor.
He was immediately rushed to the Bishop Shanahan Hospital, Nsukka where he died in the early hours of Saturday, March 13.
The caretaker told Vanguard that he reported the incident to the police after every attempt to revive him failed in the hospital.
