UNILORIN Student Commits Suicide
A 26-year-old UNILORIN student has successfully taken his own life, after two failed attempts at suicide.
The deceased, Elijah Jude Anuoluwapo, was said to have consumed illicit drug substances to kill himself.
According to reports, this was Elijah’s third attempt at suicide, as a result of rejection by his immediate family members, after the death of his mother.
Elijah was rushed by his colleagues to a medical center for attention but was pronounced dead on Thursday morning, August 26.

It was gathered that Jude’s father had abandoned his mother right from the time she was pregnant with him, and his maternal grandmother who raised him was said to have died of cancer complications last year.
A friend to the deceased, who described Jude as a brilliant student and writer, said;
“Jude was a very brilliant student and even one of the very best with mastery of languages in the whole of the university campus. Many of us pleaded with him and even referred him to the school counselling unit after the second unsuccessful attempt which was about three weeks ago.
“It came to our surprise that he later proceeded with another attempt around 8:15 pm Wednesday evening. We actually tried to save his life as usual, but to no avail, as he finally gave up the ghost earlier today in the hospital. If he didn’t die, he should have been one of the very best writers of the next generation.”
