A final year student of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomosho in Oyo State identified as Adesoji Adediran has reportedly committed suicide.
The University student was reported to have committed suicide over the weekend in the hostel.
Adesoji Adediran was until his death a 500-level-student of the Urban and Regional Planning Department of the school.
The student who according to report hung himself from the ceiling of his school hostel was found by his roommates who had been away to study for the night.
The corpse of the student was reported to have been deposited at the mortuary following its discovery.
Reacting to the death, a classmate of the victim reported that his body was found at around 5.30am.
The classmate who pleaded to remain anonymus told Punch:
“He has two roommates. The roommates went for a night study on Friday. When they returned to the room on Saturday, they discovered that he had hanged himself with a cable. Nobody has an idea why he killed himself.”
Another close friend also said:
“As his friend, what pained me most was that we still played together on Friday night. He never opened up to me. We asked him to go with us for the night study, but he said he preferred to stay behind.
Around 5.30am when we returned, we found his corpse. He was almost done with his final year project and he never complained of anything. We are a clique and we eat together; it was all fun, until we found his corpse.”
His body has been deposited at LAUTECH morgue for autopsy
