The University of Benin, UNIBEN, was left mourning on Sunday evening after a final-year student of the institution jumped from the second floor of one of the hostels and died.
The UNIBEN student, whose identity is still unknown as at press time, committed suicide after failing his examinations.
According to the report, the student was supposed to have graduated but had an extra year following failure in the examination.
It was however not clear if the deceased left a suicide note, but his remains which littered the floor have been deposited in a morgue.
There has been no reaction from the Public Relations Officer of the institution, Mr Michael Osasuyi as at press time.
