20-year-old UNILORIN Student Reportedly Commits Suicide


20-year-old UNILORIN Student Reportedly Commits Suicide

A 20-year-old student of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) identified as Sanni Hameedat, has committed suicide after lending her online lover she met on Snapchat the sum of N500,000.

The private hostel management she resided in before her demise, in a statement on Wednesday said the deceased was undergoing her SIWES programme before the unfortunate incident happened.

“The cause of Suicide was traced to financial misappropriation. She was entrusted with a significant sum of money by her mother. She crossed paths with a guy on Snapchat and developed a friendship.

When the boy claimed that his mother was battling breast cancer and urgently needed N500,000, the compassionate and emotional lady decided to help him by lending him half of the N1 million she held for her mother. And the boy promised to repay the borrowed money.

“However, when her mother needed the money back, the boy abruptly cut off all up all contact, blocking her. This left her deeply troubled and in order for her to make up the missing N500,000, she resorted to borrowing money from various apps.”

She, therefore, managed to gather N450,000 from the loan apps, adding her savings of N50,000 to make up the borrowed N500,000.

The management stated that she was reported to have ingested a bottle of pesticide known as Sniper the previous night, and her roommate, who had retired to bed early, woke up in the middle of the night to discover her in distress while she was foaming from her mouth and also vomiting.

“Alarmed, the roommate sought help, and she was rushed to UITH before being declared dead.”

The Student Union President, Ologundudu Adesunkanmi, who spoke with the Punch said, “The Vice-Chancellor, Dean of Student Affairs are very much aware of the issue, and they have reported to the appropriate authority to begin a full-length investigation into the matter. It is sad that the university community lost her in such a devastating manner.”
