A 23-year-old National Diploma 1 student of Auchi Polytechnic, one Solomon Oboh, has allegedly commited suicide.
The deceased, who was of the Public Administration Department, was said to have been found dangling from the ceiling of his room on Friday night, September 10.
The student was said to have left a suicide note behind with instruction that his mobile phone be given to his girlfriend and coursemate, one Sandra, whom he begged for forgiveness in the note.
It was gathered that earlier that day, the deceased had felt humiliated by his inability to spell the words, “computer technology” correctly in the presence of his classmates.
“Solomon was in class on Friday and left for home after class. We only came home later in the evening to find him dangling from the ceiling of his room at Bawack area of South Ibie”, a source said.
“He was a very quiet boy who took his academics very serious. He doesn’t go out and never showed any sign of depression”, the source added.
The polytechnic spokesman, Mr. Mustapha Oshiobugie, who confirmed the incident, said he had yet to be briefed on the details.
