A 300-level student of the Federal University of Technology, Akure, (FUTA) identified as Olona Joseph Oluwapelumi, has committed suicide in his private lodge in the Aule area of Akure, the state capital.
According to sources, the student who was from the Department of Industrial Design took his own life by hanging himself in his room.
The source said that the young did not leave any note to explain the reason behind his action but said it might be connected with depression and financial constraints
He disclosed Oluwapelumi’s lifeless body was seen dangling in his room after his friends visited him on Saturday after several calls had been made to his handset without any response.
The friends decided to break the locked door and his dead body was found in his room, while they found a bucket used by the deceased to support himself before committing the act.
Oluwapelumi popularly called Black was said to be full of life on Friday and his action to take his life surprised the neighbors.
He was said to be playful, always smiling, easy going and never got involved in any argument or fight with anyone
However, several posts on the deceased Facebook page contained messages preparing him for his suicide mission and some other messages where he was seeking financial help to enable him to run his business.
On October 8th, his Facebook post reads: ”Suicide kinda answers all, it’s the only thing that listens and trusts you when You left all to yourself. Good night and Goodbye”
