The Osun State Command of the Nigeria Police Force said it is investigating the events that birthed the suicide of a 19-year-old student in the state over the weekend.
The security agency revealed in a statement made available to newsmen on Sunday that the teenager who was identified as a student of Ipetu-Ijesa College of Technology was found dead in Ilesa.
Confirming the identity of the deceased, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, SP Yemisi Opalola, told reporters in Osogbo, the state capital that the victim, Olonade Tomiwa, was found hanging lifelessly in the compound with a telephone cable.
The PPRO said the tragic event was reported at Ilesa ‘A’ Division by a youth leader in the town who identified himself as Agboola Olusola.
Upon visiting the scene of the incident, the police in its preliminary finding into the incident revealed that there was no mark of violence on the body of the deceased.
Opalola said the police took photographs of the scene and the corpse was deposited at Wesley Guild Hospital mortuary in Ilesa.
She said the command has continued to dig deep into the genesis of the event.
There was confusion at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, in Anambra State on Saturday after three undergraduate students were found dead in their hostel.
The institution, Naija News learnt, had closed its last session on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, after the completion of its second-semester examination.
The school management, however, said it was shocking to learn about the untimely death of the undergraduate students.
Reports said the female students, all in their 200-level, were found dead inside their hostel rooms at the Igbariam campus of the varsity.
A source at the institution confirmed the identity of the students as Obidiaso Chidera (200-level Political Science student), Mercy (200-level Pharmacy student), and Emmanuella (200-level Business Administration).
It is yet unclear what led to their death but security operatives and the school authorities are on their toes to unravel the mystery behind the sad incident.
There are suspicions, however, that the deceased might have mistakenly locked themselves up in their room from outside.
